About This Blog

Don’t Be Doomed is an informal, amateur history blog. I’m sharing what I learn and encouraging others to read more about history. I am not a credible academic source, but I hope to introduce readers to excellent books that are educational and enlightening.

The blog title comes from the famous quote attributed to Edmund Burke, “Those who don’t know history are doomed to repeat it.”

Given what’s happened in history, if we repeat it, we’re pretty much just doomed.

So don’t be doomed. Learn history.

About Me

I’m Daniel Sherrier, a former journalist and current writer of fiction living in central Virginia. I earned a B.A. in English and Theatre from the College of William & Mary, and I worked for community newspapers for nearly a decade as a reporter and then editor. In 2018, I published the superhero novel The Flying Woman and am currently working on the sequel.

You can reach me at dontbedoomed@gmail.com. For more information about my fiction writing, please check out my author website.

The best way to support this blog is to support my fiction (which has nothing to do with history, but if you happen to also appreciate superheroes …).
