About the Author

C.B. Mosher has lived in South America, New York City, the Midwest, Los Angeles, Georgia, and the Sierra Nevada mountains. In high school, he detested history.

As life has progressed, his memory banks have become haunted by the hissing of jungle rain, the thick smell of summer Jasmine, the taste of L.A. smog, the sparkling lights of Gotham reflected in wet midnight asphalt, and the crisp feel of mountain air as you swing through it. Along the way, Borges, Churchill, and others gave him an enthusiasm for history.

In an effort to give back, he has published short stories, a novel, a non-fiction book, various scientific articles, textbook chapters, and an on-going newspaper column.

Other than the works detailed on this site, writings include: 

  • "Sword of Water" - a soldier of ancient Sparta discovers that his bride has been schooled in the new discipline of Philosophy. The conflict between his dedication to societal tradition and her enthusiasm for individual freedom of thought grows to a dramatic confrontation.

  • "The Tower" - behind the legends of the Tower of Babel and The Flood were real human beings, including a man driven by passion and faith to build a forbidden place of worship.

  • “Papal Bull” - a Latinized faux proclamation by The Church of its protestations against a perceived attack from the Press.

  • “Emergency First Aid” - published by Consumer Guide, written for the household.

  • “The 1495 - 1550 Epidemic of Europe” - a scientific thesis exploring the bacteriologic origin of the world’s greatest pox - Syphilis.

  • “Gnosis” - one of the more infamous heresy hunters of the early Christian era dedicated his entire life to exterminating a single Christian sect. What could have engendered such a deeply passionate hatred?
