Hi, I am Ed Londergan.

About Me

A freelance writer and editor, newspaper columnist, writing coach, workshop teacher, and amateur colonial historian, Ed Londergan has always been fascinated by American history. He began researching the battles of King Philips’s War and was amazed by what he found. He decided to bring history back to life through the eyes of Jack Parker, a young orphaned boy from Ipswich, and his passage into adulthood during a very dangerous and frightening time. The result was The Devil’s Elbow (Indian Rock Publishing, 2013), which won an honorable mention in the juvenile fiction category at the 2013 New England Book Festival. Londergan’s newest book, The Long Journey Home, continues the story with Jack Parker’s capture and escape and his brutal trek home through the winter wilderness to the wife and son he loves beyond measure, so together, they can find the one place that is truly home.


The Long Journey Home continues the story of Jack and Becky Parker as they strive to make a life for themselves on the frontier in early colonial Massachusetts.
Set against the background of King Philip’s War, the single greatest catastrophe to occur in seventeenth-century Puritan New England.
