New book available on Amazon


Those who follow this blog know that for a number of years I’ve been writing History Matters, a column devoted to the history of Hampton and Hampton Beach, New Hampshire, which is published monthly in the Hampton Union newspaper and republished on my social media sites at Facebook, Twitter, and Now I’ve combined that collection of columns, plus extra photos and a few bonus articles, into a book titled (big surprise!) Hampton History Matters.

I’m excited and proud to announce that HHM is now available on If you buy the book through that site (search on my name or book title, or click the link below) and post a customer review on the book’s Amazon page, I’ll send you a free set of bookmarks* (email your snail mail address to or DM me on Facebook).












*Includes bookmarks for The Queens of Hampton Beach, Marked: The Witchcraft Persecution of Goodwife Unise Cole, and A Meet and Suitable Person: Tavernkeeping in Old Hampton, New Hampshire. Never be without a bookmark again!


Thanks to Karen Raynes for getting me into this newspaper gig to begin with, and to Betty Moore and the Hampton Historical Society for access to the Society’s archives and for reprint permissions.

Don’t forget to recycle this post – please share with a friend!

    The front and back cover look great. What is inside I know from following your Hampton Union History Matters column will be a fine collection of tasty Hampton history tales. You are an inspiration and a gift to Hampton as writer and story teller. Many Thanks and keep being inspired. We all benefit from your talent. I am next going to to purchase my copy of Hampton History Matters.
