Civil war romance author to speak at the Southborough Library on Wednesday

From the Southborough Library:

Author B. J. Vaughn will visit on Wednesday, September 15, at 11 a.m., to talk about her writing of a Civil War romance, Muddy Waters: And the Man in The Chimney, to be released this fall. What is it like to be a writer? How do you find your characters?  Join us for a lively discussion.

Ms. Vaughn taught art history and painting for years before tackling her first novel.  Now working on her fourth, the Civil War era is a period of particular interest for her, and with the upcoming sesquicentennial, a timely one.

The talk is free and open to the public. Area book groups are encouraged to attend. Call the Library at 508.485.5031 to sign up.

I would like to bring to your attention what I believe is a unique book and an unknown but very moving true story that may be of interest — Hiram’s Honor: Reliving Private Terman’s Civil War, ISBN 978-0615-27812-4. Second Bull Run, Chancellorsville, Richmond (Belle Island), and Andersonville are prominently featured in the book. More information is available at

A recent comment from a Pennsylvania reviewer:

“Max R. Terman has masterfully crafted an engrossing novel that is difficult to set down. Once you begin reading, you are transported back nearly 150 years to the time of division, heartache, and chaos that became known as the American Civil War. His ancestor’s story comes to life in a fascinating new work that is certain to become a classic among historical novels…” Civil War author and historian from York, Pa.
