Charles E. Friend is the author of numerous non-fiction works and several novels. His historical novels are based upon his long-time association with Williamsburg, VA, the restored colonial capital of Virginia. He has used the resources of that location and those of the world-famous Mariners' Museum in Newport News, VA, in recreating the locales and events of the Revolutionary period, and his novels about sea warfare in the era of the American Revolution are unequalled in their richness and historical accuracy. He is a dedicated student of the history of the American West, and has lived in both Arizona and Texas, where he acquired much of the background for his novels which are mostly western stories.
