Nonfiction

My very first book was non-fiction. The Horse Lover's Handbook came out in 1983, and perhaps some day it will again be in print.



Commodore Mules

This book discusses the role of these often misunderstood animals that have played a big part in the development of the United States. 

 


  Benjamin Banneker

This biography of a brilliant African American is put out by The Wright Group (McGraw Hill).   Mr. Banneker, who lived around the time of the Revolutionary War,  was a self-taught land surveyor who helped lay out Washington D. C.  He also was one of the first to believe there is more than one galaxy in space.

Arab Americans Arab Americans

With a name like Anderson, I’m obviously not an expert on the Arab countries, so I had a lot of help on this title which I wrote for the World Almanac Library. 



 

These 4 books are out of print, but you can still find hardback copies
of them on Amazon.com if you look under used books.

Commodore Sarah Michelle Gellar

My biography of Sarah Michelle Gellar was published by Chelsea House in January of 2002. In case, the name doesn't ring a bell, she's Buffy the Vampire Slayer on TV.

 


  Will Smith

In 2003, my biography of movie and rap star Will Smith was published by Lucent Books. . The more I learned about him, the more impressed I was by his personal integrity as well as his incredible talent and determination to always do his best. No matter how crazy his life can get, he knows that his family must come first and he's a wonderful role model for his many fans.

The Vice Presidency

The Vice Presidency is in a Chelsea House series about the U.S. government. The research for this book was pretty interesting, too. Did you know that one of our vice presidents was so old and sick when elected that he had to take the oath of office in Cuba? He never did make it back to Washington D.C. to serve his country.
