I am a writer. Although I have written numerous essays for magazines and have now published eight books of nonfiction, with a ninth on the way, I especially love to write stories. I started writing stories 30 years ago when I was in high school. I haven’t really stopped since.

VERGENNES — “I’ve always had a secret love for weapons and armor,” said Michael McEnerney.
