I'm the featured author at Unusual Historicals. Come take a look at an historic character from Cost of Freedom.
As a disclaimer, I'd like to point out that this was an actual person and the first half of his story is true. When it was time for him to depart, I felt he had so much left to offer my story. What else could I do? I promoted him, gave him an impressive rank, and led him down a fictional road. I do not mean to sully the man's name. Anything concerning Thomas Preston after the trial is purely my imagination.
