I Can Help:
I tailor my presentations to the interests of large and small groups alike. Whether you are looking for a keynote speaker to uplift and entertain a large audience or a speaker who delights in more intimate groups, I will fill the room with stories and ideas, and encourage your group to take part in the discussion. I am a passionate historian intrigued by the ability of ordinary people in the face of tremendous challenges to rise up and to succeed beyond their wildest expectations. This makes for pretty interesting reading that will keep you up at night.

The Loyalist Trilogy, completed in November, 2016, delves into American and Canadian history with the story of two generations of the fictional Garner family. My neighbor came running out of his house, down the steps and across the lawn shouting at my husband and me, as we walked by early one morning. Terry had bought my first book, The Loyalist’s Wife, probably to be a good friend, but he loved it and ran out to tell me so.
“It was a pleasure to be at the LWS meeting last night. Great information shared. Love your books and writing style. I will give them as gifts. They bring this time in history to life in a way that one will never forget. Thank you!” Rosemary
“Elaine Cougler has written a page-turning novel of the American Revolution through the eyes of a conflicted loyalist soldier and his indomitable wife. You’ll feel the hardship of homesteading, the fear of the enemy, the blows of battle, and the pain of separation. You’ll be transported through history. This is not just a novel written about another time, it seems written in another time.” Terry Fallis, author of The Best Laid Plans, Stephen Leacock medal winner
“I bought all three books at Probus club meeting in London. I loved the stories. I am now a student reading more about the war of 1812. Thank you for your stories. Love your writing style.” Gwen Moore
“I was delighted with the way you handled the Norwich Rebellion in the last Loyalist book, Elaine, and have heard many positive comments about it.” Marie A.
“I’m an impatient reader. If my interest isn’t piqued right from the get-go, I simply don’t continue reading the book. Both of the Loyalist books drew me in immediately!” Elaine B
“The Loyalist’s Luck is one of the best sequels I’ve read in a long time. It picks up right where The Loyalist’s Wife left off and takes the reader to Canada with a group of Loyalists escaping the American Revolution.” Denise F
