Daniel Finck is an amateur historian whose interest in America's Civil War dates back to the Centennial celebration, when he was in junior high school. Born in Philadelphia, he came to Virginia while serving in the U.S. Air Force and never left. He has walked the hills and fields of the Shenandoah Valley, tracing the steps of Stonewall Jackson's army from Harpers Ferry to Port Republic.
For three decades he worked as an EMT/Paramedic around Virginia and now does critical care nursing at a university based teaching hospital. He holds a BS in Home Economics from Virginia State University, Petersburg, and did graduate studies in American Literature at Virginia Commonwealth University, in Richmond. He is a practicing martial artist with black belt rank in Hapkido and Taekwondo.
Reenact This! is his first novel.
George Kidman doesn't know squat about the Civil War. To him, it's ancient history and like, who cares? He goes to a battle reenactment because of a girl and an unlucky cannon shot knocks him off his feet. When he sits up, it looks like the same place, but it feels like 1862; and Stonewall Jackson is about to light up the Shenandoah Valley with his own brand of warfare. Being a 21st century slacker, George is totally not ready for life in a 19th century army, or any army, and he gropes and stumbles his way from one misadventure to another. From hospital to infantry camp, to mule train and back, he ricochets through the Confederate Army, trying figure out what happened to him, and how to get along until he can get away. He makes friends with a wild raider from Turner Ashby's cavalry, and joins the legendary Stonewall Brigade's Bluestone Rangers. When three Northern armies close in on Jackson's isolated troops, George endures hard marching and brisk fighting, and learns a few lessons they didn't teach in history class. At the same time, he plays Cupid to a southern belle and her too-shy suitor, sets himself up in the recycling business, and teaches a slow-witted boy the manly art of whup-ass, all the while trying to finagle his way out of the army, out of the war and out of the line of fire.
