My apologies: I haven't posted for a long time. I've been on vacation, and trying to keep up to date with my blog about the art of biography. Over there, you will notice a fair amount of material that discusses my work on The First Tycoon.
Also, the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History has given me a fair amount of press recently, and the staff has my thanks. There's a Q&A with me on the institute's blog. It's located here.
And its online publication, History Now, has published an article I wrote about William Walker, the filibuster who upset Vanderbilt's plans for Nicaragua. It's located here.
