About Along the Hudson

One of my ancestors is named Lewis Dudley Deming. He was born in 1820 and spent most of his life on the Hudson River as a boat pilot and captain between Albany and New York City. Though I will never be a riverboat pilot, I can’t help but feel the same draw to the Hudson that Lewis presumably felt. For some reason, my life has led me here, and it’s where my family calls home: the Hudson River Valley.

I’ve spent the past decade of my life either on or around this river. As a result, it provides me with a constant source of inspiration. Some of my best story ideas have come from quiet mornings, exploring or hiking along its banks.

That’s what you’ll receive if you sign up — my stories from Along the Hudson.

I will share original fiction every Monday. Fifties by the Fire and Embers are monthly posts, and they will be sent out on the second and fourth Fridays of the month, respectively.

Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope to see you around!
