Russo smHi … thanks for dropping in.

I enjoy writing about the human side of history, getting inside the heads of people who forged the world we live in.

My first book, Lincoln’s Diary – a novel, hit a couple Amazon.com BestSeller Lists. Its available in both eBook and trade paperback editions.

Lincoln’s Diary is a contemporary mystery set in Southern California and Eastern Maryland that has Sarah Sue Morgan risking her life to recover Lincoln’s personal diary that went missing from her mother’s estate. Hank Searls, author of Jaws 2, calls it “mesmerizing.”

My upcoming release, Lincoln Raw  a biographical novel, taps the heart and soul of America’s sixteenth president, plumbing the depths of his humanity.

Using a first person narrative, Abraham Lincoln revisits his traumatic childhood and volatile adolescence, then recalls how he became the man who led America to a new definition of “Liberty for All.”

If you want to get involved in some of the topics I turn up while researching my novels, visit my Blog . It has become a favorite place to visit for people who are curious about Lincoln’s psychology. I am also available for appearances at service clubs, historical societies, schools, libraries and museums. For more information on Lectures on Lincoln appearances, Contact Me.
