Rory gets around

October 30th, 2017

Although he can no longer pipe, hike or travel to exotic lands, and although he’s been reduced to shuffling about with a walker, James L. McWilliams can still research and write. He continues to produce an adventure series about a fictional Canadian hero from almost two centuries ago, Rory MacHugh, delighted to have earned a finalist nomination in the “faction class” (fiction based on facts) for the Book Excellence Awards with the second volume of his MacHugh Memoirs canon, A Secret of the Sphinx. He got three more volumes soon to be released after The Assassins in which the hero’s amorous relationship with the glamorous Duchess of Abrant├Ęs lands him in hotwater–again–after he has returned to Paris in 1803. http://www.jameslmcwilliams.com/

  1. Rory is not Scottish — he is CANADIAN– of Scottish and French descent and Blackfoot up-bringing. Hard to imagine anyone more Canadian than that.
