"Mr. Seabrook is the best of the Southern writers." - Dana Horton Makepeace

LOCHLAINN SEABROOK, the 2011 winner of the United Daughter of the Confederacy's prestigious Jefferson Davis Historical Gold Medal, is recognized as one of the world's leading pro-South writers.  A seventh-generation Kentuckian and a fourth-generation West Virginian of Appalachian heritage, he is a popular unreconstructed Southern historian and award-winning author, poet, and screenwriter, an encyclopedist and lexicographer, and the author of some thirty adult, teen, and children's books - twenty-two of them on the War for Southern Independence.

A states' rights advocate, traditional Southern Agrarian, and  former Civil War tour guide, as a Civil War scholar Mr. Seabrook is often compared to another Tennessee historian of note, Shelby Foote.  As a Bible scholar, in the field of religion Mr. Seabrook has been likened to Christian writer Charles Fillmore for his in-depth works on Jesus and the Bible.  And as an expert on ancient mythology and symbolism, he is referred to as both the "new Joseph Campbell" and the "American Robert Graves," the latter after his English cousin, historian, mythographer, poet, and author of the classic book, The White Goddess.

Mr. Seabrook's adult works include the following genres: pro-South studies, Confederate biography, Civil War ghost stories, the Law of Attraction, spirituality, theology, thealogy, self-help, healing, health, encyclopedias, dictionaries, genealogy, etymology, the paranormal, comparative religion and mythology, and social issues.

His eight children's books include a guide to the Civil War for Southern children, a biography of Nathan Bedford Forrest for teenagers, a dictionary of religion and myth, a rewriting of the King Arthur legend (which reinstates the original pre-Christian motifs), bedtime stories for pre-schoolers, a naturalist's guidebook to owls, a worldwide look at the family, and an examination of the Near-Death Experience.

An acclaimed screenwriter, Mr. Seabrook recently signed on with renowned filmmaker Christopher Forbes.  Together they will bring Seabrook's screenplay "A Rebel Born" (based on his popular biography of the same name) to the big screen.  This will surely be the most provocative, historically accurate, and most talked about Civil War film of all time.  Stay tuned for new developments.  (For more info. click on "Screenplays" below.)

Also an award-winning BMI-Nashville songwriter and musician, he has written some 3,000 songs (250 albums), has opened for groups such as the Earl Scruggs Review, Ted Nugent, and Bob Seger, and has performed privately for such luminaries as President Ronald Reagan, Burt Reynolds, and Senator Edward Brooke.

The descendant of dozens of Confederate soldiers, Mr. Seabrook is cousins with Robert E. Lee, Stonewall Jackson, Nathan Bedford Forrest, Alexander H. Stephens, James Longstreet, John S. Mosby, Jeb Stuart, John McGavock, John Lawton Seabrook, Mary Chesnut, and Jesse James, among many others.  His cousins in the entertainment industry include Johnny Cash, Elvis Presley, Dolly Parton, Tim McGraw, the Judds, Lee Ann Womack, Miley and Billy Ray Cyrus, Pat Boone, Chet Atkins, Martha Carson, Cindy Crawford, Tom Cruise, Andy Griffith, and Rebecca Gayheart.
