      Imagine fighting in the land war on the American side under the likes of
      Gen. Hull. Or defending the road to Washington alongside Commodore
      Barney and watching your flank's hasty retreat in the Bladensburg races.
      Or fighting for the incompetent Gen. Wilkinson at Crysler's Farm.
      My new historical novel, Madness: The War of 1812 follows the travails
      of Ens. William Quinn and his mentor Sgt. Major Judah Frake in the war
      from Fort Mackinac through North Point as they have to deal with the
      self-indulgent, lazy, cowardly and incompetent senior commanders whose
      actions and inactions have endangered the very existence of the young
      republic. Henry, an escaped slave, plays a surprising and critical role
      in the war and Sally Martin observes the behind-the-scenes frustrations
      in an unexpected role in Mr Madison's White House.
      If you're interested in reading some excerpts and learning more, please
