In 2018 I published my first book, Abandoned Trails Of Acadia National Park, and in 2019 I published my second book, Footprints In Time - Stories From Mount Desert Island's Past, a collection of stories compiled from old newspapers. The books are not available for sale to the general public but are made available for free to public libraries. If a library in your area does not have the books, you can request they get one for you through the free interlibrary loan program.
I am also listed in the reference section of two books, Death In Acadia by Randi Minetor - a book covering the stories behind a good number of people who have died in Acadia National park, and Haunted Islands In The Gulf Of Maine by Marcus Librizzi.
