As a maritime history speaker, Rossignol enjoys meeting audiences around the world and discussing the original news stories of the sinking of the RMS Titanic and other maritime history topics.
Traveling the high seas around the world is the way that the author keeps in touch with the adventures of the Sea Empress and keeps the voyages interesting and the stories coming.
In recent years Rossignol has appeared on dozens of ships in the Pacific, Atlantic, Mediterranean, and the Caribbean discussing the stories of the history of the Panama Canal, the heroes of the Titanic, the explorations of the new world voyagers, the Bermuda Triangle and the history of piracy, among other maritime history topics.
Rossignol appears at the Titanic Museum Attractions in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee and Branson, Missouri for book signings and to talk with visitors about the RMS Titanic.
With a recent visit to the International Book Fair 2016 in Panama as one of the United States Delegation authors and entertainers Rossignol enjoyed telling the stories of the History of the Panama Canal, Piracy and of the heroes of the Titanic.
He has appeared on Good Morning America, ABC 20/20; ABC World News Tonight and in a 2012 production of Discovery Channel Investigation Motives & Murders Series, A Body in the Bay.
