S. Thomas Bailey

S. Thomas Bailey is an award-winning author and independent researcher of early North American life. He takes pride in being a raw historian at heart, and a writer by choice.

Bailey’s own sense of history is enriched by a Mi’kmaq grandfather and a family tree that can be traced back to the young surveyor, James Cook, who began his career mapping out the St. Lawrence River system during the French and Indian War.

He made a big family move westward and now resides in Alberta, with his wonderfully supportive wife and two amazing children. His family spends their time visiting the Rockies, enjoying spotting a moose out front of the house and seeing the Northern Lights from their back yard.

Bailey looks forward to continuing Jacob and Maggie’s story. This is his final novel in the award-winning series, The Gauntlet Runner, but he already has plans for a subsequent series focusing on the American Revolutionary period.

He is always available for lectures, book signings and events focusing on the colonial period in North America.

PLEASE consider writing a review for this novel or any of the other novels in this series. A kind word always helps people learn about the series and the time period!
