More About the Author

Hi! I'm Nancy Hendrickson, an Amazon bestselling author based in San Diego. I write about a wide variety of topics, from social media, Wordpress, computers and digital photography to American history, travel and genealogy. I also coach other writers who want to launch or grow their freelance writing business.

When not writing or coaching, I spend as much time as possible traveling to the historic sites of the frontier west. I've posted photos of these trips over at http://flickr.com/frontiertraveler. The last trip was along portions of the Old Santa Fe Trail, which I followed into Dodge City, Kansas. An unexpected find along the way was Pecos National Historic Park in New Mexico - a hidden gem I stumbled across quite by accident. Isn't serendipity wonderful!

When at home in San Diego, one of my favorite pasttimes is flying my Delta stunt kite down at the Bay - - and seeing how many disastrous crashes I can avoid! My most recent adventure involved attaching a Flip video camera to my kite to get a bird's eye view of San Diego. Poor Flip.

I found this fastenating. I have not read anything so creative in this type of book. A friend of mine picked this book up to browse and spent three hours reading. I found it well thought out, organized, and creatiave. I discovered the author actually took the picture on the cover. The examples on the back cover drew me right into exploring different dates in history. Page 172 is an example of the authors creativity "Henry David Thoreau, the jack-of-all-trades...". I plan to find other books by this author. Charlene Crilley

Don't you love books that you can pick up, open to any page, and be immediately involved? This is that book. I keep a book in the throne room, and this one would improve my health by keeping me there longer! :-) Don't pass this one up, don't miss it, don't miss knowing that was fascinating about a particular day of the year.

You know those books " What happened in the year your were born?" This book is a unique take on that concept with historical tidbits for every day of the year. What a fun way to brush up on your history, to use as a history supplemental for homeschooling, or learn some h historical trivia. It's well researched and meaty.

I've bought several books by this author and she never ceases to keep my interest. When I saw this offer, I just had to pick it up.

There's a section for each day with an interesting tale of what happened that day in history. The first thing everyone in my family did was check out their birthdays. This is a good book to keep on your Kindle for those times you are waiting in line or are on hold waiting for customer service.

Just be aware that you may find yourself going to just one more day and then just one more day after that. What a great concept for a book and a fun way to delve into history.
