The series label is presumptive and I offer a few words of explanation. Edward Gibbon in his Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire posits that there are two types of inclination in people: the love of pleasure and the love of action. To paraphrase a long passage, Gibbon states if the love of pleasure is refined it provides the greatest part of happiness in private life and the love of action is dangerous as it often leads to anger, ambition, and revenge. But if the love of action is in a virtuous one; a family, a state, or an empire can trust its safety to the undaunted courage of a single person.
The stories I write are about those who love action and attempt to be virtuous and courageous. Because so many who love action crave power for power’s sake there is an inevitable clash between those who ascribe to values and those who don’t. Victories in these clashes result in the most astounding achievements in humanity and, what is often lost in the history books, are won by regular people making extraordinary commitments. I know this because I have seen it with my own eyes. That’s what I call the “Good Fight”, that’s what I wrap my stories around, and telling these stories is why I write.
