Hi, I’m Drew. I am a history enthusiast and dad of three boys (ages 9, 6, and 2). I started Splash Read as a 2020 quarantine side project. I wanted to introduce my kids to interesting people and events in history. I also wanted to create opportunities for us to discuss various situations that life throws at us. Historical fiction short stories accomplished all of that.

When this project started, I was sending a weekly newsletter to family, friends, and subscribers. As interest grew, I added the stories to the Kindle Store, where the stories had even more traction. Various stories have made the top 10 bestselling list, and one was even the #1 new release.

This website will be a hub to access the stories in even more formats as time goes on. I hope that parents and children or teachers and students everywhere will benefit from the stories as they comprehend people and events in history along with other life lessons.
