“I will use examples from my own and others' research to help all authors find quick and efficient ways to answer questions about areas outside of their expertise,” Dr. Young said. He will discuss common tools available for authors to conduct topical or historical research.

Dr. James Young is a Missouri native who escaped small town life by attending the United States Military Academy. After leaving the Army, Dr. Young returned to the Midwest to pursue his doctorate—a process that took twice the time planned but is finally concluded.

Having now concluded two of the prerequisites to be a super villain, Dr. Young spends his time waiting for the inevitable origin story, winning writing awards (2016 United States Naval Institute Cyber Essay Contest Winner, among others), and penning novels. His next alternate history book, Against the Tide Imperial, will be out this summer on Amazon (e-book) and other outlets (hard copy). Against the Tide Imperial is the third in his Usurper's War series.  You can also find Dr. Young's blog at https://vergassy.com/ or follow him on Twitter (@youngblai) or on Facebook (Colfax Den).
