By 1774, fur trader and diplomat extraordinaire Sir William (Billy) Smithyman has carved a baronial estate from the New York wilderness and earned the undying love of his Mohawk wife Laura Silverbirch along with her people’s trust. Now, the colonies are flirting with revolution and the frontier needs his leadership, but Billy is gravely ill from an old war wound. His oldest son, Thomas, unwilling and unprepared, may be forced to take his father’s place.

Freedom’s Children, third in the Smithyman saga, plunges readers into life-and-death drama as a new generation clashes in the struggle to dominate a continent.


David More:

David More was born in Montreal, Canada, but now lives with his wife, Donna, in a mid-1800s limestone house near Lake Ontario, where he can occasionally indulge his lifelong passions for sailing, boating and boatbuilding. Most recently, he acquired several weeks’ experience filling in as occasional deckhand, helmsman and cook aboard the local sail-training square-rigger, the brigantine St. Lawrence II, while working part-time for the organization.

Retired from a career as a medical laboratory manager, David was educated at University of Waterloo (BA History) and Queen’s University (Master of Public Administration) and MA (History). He is also a graduate of Canada’s Humber School for Writers. He has won several awards for his historical fiction and has published numerous articles in newspapers and professional journals. David has taught local/regional history at St. Lawrence College and continues to study history full-time in the PhD program at Queen’s, recently winning the Roger Graham Canadian History Fellowship and an Ontario Graduate Scholarship, while working on Book IV of the Smithyman Saga, The King’s Salt.
