It was twilight at Bulloch Hall, Roswell, Georgia, when former President Theodore Roosevelt stepped in front of more than 100 visitors to welcome them all to “Mother’s House.” TR’s booming voice and boisterous spirit filled the room as he read from Mittie & Thee, the letters of his parent’s courtship, first written in 1853.
The evening ended with TR (Joe Wiegand - Theodore Roosevelt Reprisor) presenting Gwen and I with “Teddy” bears. Gwen, her husband Art, and I celebrated the launch of our first book together with wine and many friends. We are currently working on book two of the Bulloch Letters series.
Connie M. Huddleston
I loved history and dreamed of writing a book even as a child. However, I got sidetracked and first became an Army wife, a mother, an elementary school teacher, an archaeologist, and an historic preservation consultant, before publishing my first book! Now here we are in 2016, and I have published my fifth and sixth volumes, all dealing with my passion, writing about our nation’s past.
While two are written for children under the name C.M. Huddleston, my other works are histories for adults on a variety of subjects. Currently I am researching and writing about President Theodore Roosevelt’s ancestors and planning Greg's Third Adventure in Time!
I reside in a log cabin near Crab Orchard, Kentucky, with my husband, a retired Army officer, and our Australian Shepherd Katie. We enjoy the quiet of rural Kentucky, except when Katie barks at deer, turkeys, and of course, the UPS truck!
