More About the Author

JOSEPH COWLEY was born on October 9, 1923. He graduated from Columbia University in 1947, interrupting his academic career to serve two and a half years with the Army Air Force during World War II. The last few months of service were spent overseas as a bombardier with the Eighth Air Force, for which he was awarded the Bronze Star. He received his M.A. from Columbia in 1948 and taught English at Cornell University before entering sales.

Most of his career was spent writing and editing material on sales and management for The Research Institute of America. Taking early retirement in 1982 to devote himself to fiction, he moved with his wife Ruth to Lebanon, Ohio, to be near the eldest of their four children and the two grandchildren existent at the time. They now have seven grandchildren: Jesse, Noah, Sarah, Samantha, Eliot, Sophia, and Sean, and live on Long Island.

He has also collected some of his favorite writings in a book called "The Best of Joseph Cowley" as a tribute to his deceased wife, who would never in life have allowed her photo to appear in or on any of his books. His latest book is a biography: John Adams: Architect of Freedom (1735-1826), published in August of 2009. He is currently condensing classic novels for a Japanese publisher.

I enjoyed this account of John Adams for its economical depiction of his life. It would be a good awakening for readers who are unaware of the dedication of people like Adams who had no guarantees that their sacrifices would be successful for the nation as well as for themselves directly.
