VJ Books Features William R. Forstchen!

William R. ForstchenWilliam R. Forstchen was born in New Jersey in 1950. After graduating from college he went on to a rather checkered career since the market for history teachers was all but dead back in the 1970s. He worked in construction, for awhile in Manhattan. He was an assistant greens keeper at a golf course, a hot walker at a race track, and worked as an apple picker and sorter.

He studied under Doctor Thomas Seay in the field of pscychology at Kutztown University. In 1978 he landed a job at a small boarding school up in Maine. The next ten years he spent teaching. He then broke into writing. Forstchen has published something like forty books and numerous articles and short stories.

In 1989, he was offered an Andrews Fellowship to do graduate studies in history at Purdue University where he spent the next four years. In 1993, he became an assistant professor of History at Montreat College, just outside of Asheville North Carolina. He is currently a full professor of history and Faculty Fellow.

Forstchen has a passion for flying. His days tend to get divided up between research and writing, teaching at Montreat College, spending time with his incredible daughter Meghan, and whenever it is around dawn and the wind is still, you can find him flying.
