I have a BA in History from Sam Houston State University and an MA in History from the University of Houston Clear Lake. I have probably a strange mix of careers. I started out as a volunteer firefighter and then transitioned into law enforcement. Along the way I worked as an editor and an adjunct history professor. I ended my police career as a detective working arson cases but worked patrol along the way and as a law enforcement park ranger. Back injuries brought my career to a premature close. I had to hang up the badge and gun in the late summer of 2013. Now I am teaching history for three different colleges. I am an adjunct instructor and maybe one day I can get hired full time by one of the schools, but that is a long shot at best.
In addition to my blog, I have a couple of other writing projects that I am working on. I write under the name Lee Hutch since that sounds more writer like than my real name. Plus, I think it is cool to say that I have a nom de plume. Or maybe a nom de guerre!
My name is Lee Hutch and I am a Civil War Addict.
