J. Dennis Robinson is the author of a dozen entertaining books about American history. He writes from a hideaway office in historic Portsmouth, NH near the swirling Piscataqua River. A popular and sometimes irreverent columnist and lecturer, he operates the award-winning website SeacoastNH.com. His latest book, MYSTERY ON THE ISLES OF SHOALS, is a thrilling nonfiction study of the infamous 1873 ax murders on Smuttynose Island. Yankee Magazine editor Judson Hale calls it "a superb piece of work" and Library Journal says "recommended for all true crime collections." His other page-turning history books focus on privateering, Jesse James, Strawbery Banke Museum, archaeology, Victorian hotels, Lord Baltimore, child labor, and more. As Robyn Dennison, the author has begun a genre-busting series of e-book novellas. The first, KILL ALL THE VAMPIRE WRITERS is available from Kindle Direct Publishing.
