Congratulations are due to assistant professor Sam Thomas, who has accepted a two-book contract with St. Martin's Press to publish his first historical novel, tentatively entitled The Midwife's Story: A Tale of Tyranny, Treason, and Murder. The book is scheduled to come out next year, probably in the fall. He will soon begin writing the sequel.
Sam has prepared a website to support the book and link it to its historical setting, including links to documents about the historic midwife, Bridget Hodgson, on which his novel is based.
