Alice Von Kannon  Author and Historian




Alice Von Kannon has been an advertising executive, a teacher, a writer and even a greedy and villainous landlord. She has studied film production at Los Angeles Valley Community College and history at California State University Northridge, and she worked for many years as a writer and broadcast producer.

A history junkie beyond the help of an intervention since the age of 14, her recent studies of Near Eastern religious cults and sects led to The Templar Code For Dummies. Also co-authored with Chris Hodapp, her second book, Conspiracy Theories And Secret Societies For Dummies, was published in March 2008.

She appeared on the Discovery Channel program, “Hunting The Lost Symbol” in 2009, and has written for the History Channel.

Alice has traveled widely, and has written on the subject of the Barbary Wars and the birth of the U.S. Navy. She is a member of the Romance Writers of America, a Dame of the Social Order of Beauceant, and a member of the Order of the Grail, the fraternal body of the International College of Esoteric Studies.

Her historical romance novel, Heart’s Blood, set in Salem, Massachusetts in 1803, will be available soon.
