Gloria Waldron Hukle , a native and resident of New York State, is an llth generation Waldron in the line of the New York Dutch Waldron family upon which the l7th century epic saga, MANHATTAN SEEDS OF THE BIG APPLE, is based. Her second novel, THE DIARY OF A NORTHERN MOON, is a 20th century mystery set in the Adirondack town of North Creek, Albany and Lake George, New York. Two boyhood friends return from World War 2, both marry, but one drinks himself to death leaving a widow and small daughter. Decades pass and in the l970s a murder forces out a long kept secret prompting friends and family to ask who really was Ben Waldron? The third of the Waldron Series books, "Threads An American Tapestry" is the story of one woman's fight for love and honor amid slander and hatred. The central character of this third novel is Margaret Vandenberg, the daughter of a Dutch father and an American Indian mother. This new, well researched novel embracing the genealogy of many New York Hudson Valley families actually follows MANHATTAN SEEDS OF THE BIG APPLE chronologically.
A student of history, Gloria’s objective is to arouse an awakening in New York State’s uniquely diverse history through story by spotlighting the early Dutch, African Americans, and American Indians of New York State and by relating their contributions to the development of American culture. Hukle is currently working on a 4th novel.
Her commitment has taken her to schools, libraries, book clubs, and historical associations around New York State as well as Pennsylvania. Many of these engagements can be viewed on this site.
