WELCOME to my author site, the purpose of which is to promote my recent writing output,  "Merchants of War"  (published by The Incorporated History Press) and "Barings Bank, William Bingham and the Rise of the American Nation", published by McFarland & Co, and now, finally to introduce the sequel to "Merchants of War"   - "Same Old Game!"  - also published by The Incorporated History Press.

Much of this is unfinished business, so any comments would be appreciated.
