Description :

In 1756, Britain and France are on a collision course for control of the North American continent. The eventual result can be described as the first world war, known as the Seven Year's War in Europe and the French and Indian War in the colonies. The Mallory family uproots from eastern Pennsylvania, and moves to the western frontier, where they find themselves in the middle of war. Daniel, Liam, and Liza (the three Mallory siblings) become involved in the conflict in ways that lead to emotional trauma for each. The story focuses on historical events and includes historical characters. Clash of Empires is an exciting look at the developments leading to the events of July 1776, which are chronicled in the sequel as we follow the exploits and fate of the Mallory clan.

Author Details

About : Recently my time for reading has been somewhat curtailed by and replaced with writing my first full length, honest to goodness novel. The working title is Clash of Empires and is a work of historical fiction that takes place in the Colonies during The French-Indian War. It's the story of a frontier family and their acquaintances and the challenges they face during this turbulent period. My Facebook page, Clash of Empires https://www.facebook.com/pages/Clash-of-Empires/1115407281808508 is a good way to keep informed. My Twitter handle is @hooverbkreview.Now as to other facts about me: • Married Daryl in 1977 • Twin sons Jacob and Nathanael born in 1980. • Moved to Salem, Ma in 1984. • Daughter Bethany born in 1988. • Grandson Bodhi and granddaughter Kaedyn born 4 days apart in October 2012. • Granddaughter Eloise born Feb 2016 • Have worked in various multi-platform data centers since 1980. • Avid fan of The Detroit Tigers even while living in the heart of Red Sox Nation. • Player of many sports as a young man, most notably softball and basketball. • Due to aging joints am now a golfer – with my regular golf buddies have formed a group we call The Hoovers as in the vacuum cleaner and thus our motto is ‘We Can't Suck Enough' • The name Ocho Seis or just Ocho is the result of the best round of golf I have played. Shot an 86 a few years back and adopted that as my golfing alter ego. Note-I am aware that 86 in Spanish is Ochenta y seis but Ocho Seis has a better ring to it. Thus you will find Ocho in many of the stories I write. • Drinker of only good coffee – fresh roasted/freshly ground from my friends at Thanksgiving Coffee, though I can take Dunkin Donuts coffee if I get it with a shot of espresso to give it some oomph. • Drinker of only fine ales, stouts and porters. American industrial beers like Budweiser, Coors and Miller are an anathema to my sensitive palette. • A cynic of the American political system. In the words of singer-songwriter Shawn Phillips ‘The country isn't run by the statesman now, but by the gentry.' • Here's the link to my musings and stories http://mystoriesandsuch.wordpress.com/

Steve Catto
About: Steve Catto is an old man, or at least that's what it says on his birth certificate. He was born in Yorkshire, but his parents took him to Australia when he was six years old and he grew up there, sometimes racing cars across the desert.

He was never very good at school, but the one thing he did learn was how to learn, and he started writing programs for the computer at the local university, much to the disdain of his teachers who told him that he would ‘never make a living out of that rubbish'. In his late teens he returned to the UK, and his parents followed him – which wasn't what he wanted because he was hoping to get away from them. His first proper job was in the computer department of an infamous Oxford publishing company, and he subsequently went on to write software for electricity control systems, and simulators for the military. He started to fly gliders and wrote programs to analyse the data from aircraft flight recorders, where he also learned to fly, and crash, lots of other types of aircraft as well – which was the best part of the job. At various times in his career he has also lived and worked in France, Switzerland, and Canada, and he now lives in Scotland. Since appearing in school plays as a child he has performed almost continuously on the amateur stage, and spent a few years scuba diving. These two things have nothing to do with each other. In terms of his pedigree as an author he has written many technical manuals and filled in countless timesheets, so is well versed in the art of conjuring up works of fiction, however he has never written a novel before, especially not one that involves a blonde girl and a man with a bow and arrow, but he did once spend three weeks working in a factory that made handles for buckets.
