michael j roucheMichael J. Roueche grew up in Virginia and spent most of his life in the Old Dominion. Always a romantic, only in more recent years did he discover the Civil War that had always been around him, thanks to Bruce Catton books from his father’s library and a good friend who gave him a copy of Michael Schaara’sKiller Angels. Beyond the Wood, a Virginia-based Civil War novel, was a surprise labor of love spawned by an unplanned drive through Manassas National Battlefield Park.He and his wife of 36 years continue their romance in Colorado, where they enjoy hiking and exploring the High Plains and Rocky Mountains, with their alpine vistas, aspen groves and evergreen forests, and amazing wildlife. While it’s not as convenient as it was when they lived in Virginia, they still actively research the Civil War. They have five great kids and several grandchildren. He is currently finalizing his next book titled A River Divides. Sequel to Beyond the Wood, it will be set in Kentucky, Virginia and the Washington City portion of the District of Columbia.
