Call me old-fashioned, but when I decided to write Cincinnatus, I tried to write a book about things that I like.
There are appearances from the Crosley brothers (who I obviously have a great affinity for), Cat Cay (one of my favorite golf courses in the world), the PGA (I’ve been an official golf scorer for years), and this crazy guy I learned about named Ed Leedskalnin (Coral Castle).
Growing up in and around Cincinnati, the book is also about something else I find very interesting, The Society of the Cincinnati. They’re a secret organization founded by many of the United States’ founding fathers.
But what is Cincinnatus about? It’s a fast-paced action thriller about a very cool female US Department of Justice attorney who teams up with a washed-up PGA golfer to solve a mystery. The ball of yarn begins unraveling when they find evidence of a conspiracy to fix golf tournaments, which leads them to a secret plot with millions of lives at stake.
David Stern and I set out to write a really fun book, and that’s what we did. It’s an amazing adventure that you won’t be able to put down.

Want more information on Cincinnatus?
Of course, my book, Cincinnatus: The Secret Plot to Save America, is fictional. But I did a lot of research before I wrote the book and I based many of the elements on real things. The Crosley brothers are real, Coral Castle is real, Cat Cay is real.
And Cincinnatus, the Roman general, is also real. He really existed, and he inspired our founding fathers. His full name was Lucius Quintcius Cincinnatus.

If you’ve read Cincinnatus: The Secret Plot to Save America, you may remember the secret lair on Cat Cay, an island off the coast of Florida.
Cat Cay, like most of the places in Cincinnatus, is a real place! It’s an exclusive island only open to members. You can find more information about the island on this Wikipedia page.
I’ve had the pleasure of visiting the island, and playing the golf course there several times, and I knew it would make the perfect secluded location for Cincinnatus.

You can also find real pictures of Cat Cay (as well as photos of Coral Castle, the Crosley Brothers, and more) on the Cincinnatus website here.
Did you know that the Society of the Cincinnati in my book Cincinnatus: The Secret Plot to Save America is a real thing?
The Society of the Cincinnati is the oldest patriotic organization in the United States, originally founded by a group of officers from the Continental Army (Revolutionary War) who idealized the selflessness of the Roman farmer-dictator Cincinnatus.
The society is still alive and active today. It is a private, closed organization made up solely of qualified male descendants of the founding officers.
Officially, the group promotes patriotism through education, museums and libraries. What do they do with the rest of their time and money? I’ve got a few ideas – Cincinnatus.
Learn more about the society at SocietyoftheCincinnati.org or on Wikipedia.
