Michael Willever spent ten years of his lifetime (2004-2014)researching, compiling, touring the battlefield, mapping it and writing a fictional narrative on the Battle of Perryville, Kentucky. He spent over a year researching the history of the event before writing a single word. He incorporated every fact uncovered and strived to not include anything that could not fit or be connected to what we know of these events.

Michael Willeverís first novel...

A Dark and Bloody Ground - Sowing the Wind

A historical narrative, which takes place during the Kentucky Campaign in 1862, takes you through the events leading up to the Battle of Perryville, Kentucky.

Michael Willeverís second novel...

A Dark and Bloody Ground - Reaping the Whirlwind

This novel puts the readers on the battlefield! You will see all the action through the eyes of several protagonists.  These novels are a must read for all Civil War and History Buffs!!!  These novels are both available through Amazon, Authorhouse, Barnes and Noble and where all other fine books are sold.
On a very sad note I hate to report there will be no more books to follow this wonderful book series due to the fact that we lost Michaelís research assistant Michael R. Phelps in 2016 to cancer. Then; on March 14, 2017 we lost author Michael Willever to a sudden heart attack.
