John M. Cahill
After a successful and rewarding career in social marketing, I became a writer of historical fiction and the author of “The Boscholoper Saga” — about the adventures of Dutch fur traders on the frontier of 17th-century colonial New York. Book 1, “Primitive Passions” was released on March 23, 2015. Book 2, “Savage Wilderness”, will be released in September 2016. It will be followed by “Inglorious Rebellion” and “Beyond the Frontier”. Together, they will celebrate the men and women who first opened the way to America’s interior. Now retired and living in Vienna, Austria, I can highlight this exciting but largely ignored period of American history. A life-long colonial history buff, I spent most of my life in western Massachusetts and New York’s Mohawk Valley. My work is influenced by James Fenimore Cooper, Kenneth Roberts and Walter D. Edmonds.
