There is a new, local author in Marriottsville who has published his first book in a proposed series of 13. Mike Hurd published his first novel in February via Amazon, titled “Lineage: A Novel.” The book lays out his family tree against real events in history.

“The book is laid out in a series of 13 vignettes, all with true historical content, but with the added dimension of my ancestors or distant cousins who might actually have been participants,” Hurd said. “Each chapter is set up so that a full sequel could be written; I am already over 200 pages into Book two of what I intend to become the "Lineage Series."

Hurd’s second book, “Soldier, Citizen, Settler” is set to be released by the middle of June. Readers can access a sample of the book by searching Mike Hurd on Amazon.
