Larry French
Welcome to my website. If it’s informative writing with a historical perspective you’re looking for, you’ve come to the right place. I'm a member of the Florida Historical Society and I love to write about history.
I retired after serving as the Executive Director of the West Volusia Historical Society (WVHS) to assist my wife in her touring business, Great Tasting Tours and spend more time on my writing. I am an actor, novelist, speaker, and writer of Science, Social Studies, Language Arts, and Mathematics curricula. When I’m not helping my wife with Great Tasting Tours you can find me applying my expertise as a Florida Master Naturalist somewhere outdoors or actively keeping history alive through the historical reenacting that I've been doing for over 43-years. If you like science and history, you'll like:

Grand Hotels of West Volusia County gives you a glimpse of some of the majestic hotels that played a role in the settlement and tourism of West Volusia County. The book is available for purchase and shipping this April. See The Book page for more details.

You can also find the Prologue to my novel, Time Will Tell: The Awakening which blends my love of history and science and is set during the American Civil War and early Florida. Let me know if you like it.
