Jean-Luc & Anna Lise

An epic unfolding of heartfelt friendships, dire privations, and undying love.



In 1795, two young boys return home from fishing to find their parish priest has been guillotined in the town square. Seventeen years later, Jean-Luc and Adrien have faced every horror and hardship imaginable as part of the emperor’s Grande Armée, but their greatest challenge is still ahead: to find Jean-Luc’s love, Anna Lise.
"Jean-Luc & Anna Lise" is set in the turbulent years of the French Revolution and Napoleonic Wars and follows the lives of three childhood friends: Jean-Luc, Adrien, and Adrien’s sister, Anna Lise. Jean-Luc and Adrien join Napoleon’s army expecting grand adventure and glory. They do find courage and comradery, but they must also endure disease, intense suffering, and death. Complicating their lives is Jean-Luc’s growing love for Anna Lise, who has fled with her parents from France to Russia—the country they must now invade. Will Jean-Luc and Adrien find Anna Lise, survive the brutal Russian winter, and return home to France? Can Jean-Luc reconcile himself with the horrors he has witnessed?

A. G. (Gary) Cullen was born in St. Louis, Missouri. Moving frequently as a child, he grew up in Alexandria, Virginia, Billings, Montana, Portland, Oregon, and finally graduated from high school in Waldport, Oregon (where his family moved after his father retired). He began college at Oregon State University, but his education was interrupted by a two-year stint in the US Navy on a refueling ship off the coast of Vietnam. His experience in the navy gave him a strong appreciation for education and shortly after his discharge, he received his bachelor’s degree from the University of Oregon and his master’s degree from the University of Missouri-Columbia.
His entire professional career has been in the promotion of energy conservation, helping utilities and government organizations design programs for their customers. While raising his two children with his wife, Kathleen, he gained an appreciation and love for soccer, coaching youth teams for nearly two decades.
