AUTHOR OF PRINCESSES

September 20, 2018

THE PRINCESS IN MY HEAD (Aignos 2018) is my third novel, and a departure from my mysteries published so far.  I usually draw from my years as an F.B.I Special Agent for characters and plots that are full of bombs, task forces and financial crime.  In my middle grade Novel and Screenplay, I believe that Princess Aqualine and Princess Allison wanted to tell a different story – one that could entertain as well as help kids solve their own problems and respond to the problems of adults around them.   


This multi-media idea evolved from my personal love to stage my favorite stories.  From a makeshift platform in my basement, I’d cast my sisters in various roles and we’d read our “parts.”  Placing this story, with script included, in the hands of kids with Smartphone access means that home plays can become home movies, and future actors and directors may be born! That idea brings me great joy.

EDITING KINDRED - THE 2018 SAVANT POETRY ANTHOLOGY

July 10, 2018

Taking the reins of KINDRED - 2018 Savant Poetry Anthology was for me an honor. It was also a chance to wear another hat, that of a guest editor, and view the poems from a different perspective. Having taught English and Literature in bygone days, it was a refreshing experience to look thru the eyes of the poets and commit myself to the navigation of their words, images, points of view, and conclusions. 


Poetry is for me the thread that links us all. As children, the first things we recite and...

KEITH R. REES GOES FOR ONE NIGHT IN BANGKOK

June 15, 2018
I've always been a storyteller. Even before I knew I could be a writer I loved telling stories. In summers during my college days I worked as a counselor at summer camp for kids in East Texas. Each night at bedtime in our cabin, I would sit in the middle of the floor and tell the kids science fiction stories about outer space. The kids were never so quiet until these times as they would hang on my every word. And each night after that, they would all remind me where I left off the night befor...

DOC KRINBERG: TEACHER, POET, NOVELIST

April 28, 2018
If a carnival had passed me at 15, I probably wouldn't be here writing this.

As it is, I ended up pursuing the closest thing to that lifestyle in the late 60's and early 70's when I used to do things like hitchhike up the coast to San Francisco with five dollars in my pocket, swim nude at the Gorge in Big Sur, sleep in a cave next to a log cabin in Laurel Canyon and convince myself surfing was approximate to attending a religious function. But…after myriad dead end jobs and start and stop at...

ROBERT FRIEDMAN: JOURNALIST/NOVELIST

March 2, 2018

     While working as a journalist for the Stars and Stripes (Darmstadt, Germany), the Athens News (Greece), the San Juan Star (Puerto Rico) and the Daily News (New York), I often felt that the deeper truths of the news stories and the people involved escaped the journalistic form. Don't get me wrong, journalism—as practiced by the truly accurate, fair-minded, determined, judicious purveyors of history's (and I'd say in many cases, good literature's) first drafts—is as impo...

MEET DANIEL BRADFORD, AUTHOR OF WESTERNS

January 23, 2018
Bo Henry's family and characters in this and the subsequent novels evolved from my grandfather's tales and my family legacy. Analogous to the writing of my previous books, as I composed this story, I could not predict the content of the next scene. I witnessed Bo's adventurous life unfold as it was revealed to me upon the screen of my computer.


When writing a story, I do not know beforehand what form it will take. I am simply the conduit through which the story is revealed. In 1988, one aftern...

MEET E. M. DUESEL

January 11, 2018
As a young adult, E. M. Duesel thoroughly enjoyed acting and dancing, and had the great fortune of being on stage for about six years. During those years, she learned character development and definition. This later became very useful in her writing. With her career as a sociologist, she has been able to combine real life experiences with research into informative and relevant stories, churning personalities she has met along the way into characters with deeply meaningful connections to the n...

INTRODUCING NOVELIST LYNNE MCKELVEY

October 4, 2017

I always wanted a child. Even before I knew I wanted to be a writer, I hoped that someday I'd be a mother. 


I got my wish. As a new mother – first in my early twenties, and again at forty-five, I spent four unbroken decades raising several children and a stepchild, mostly on my own. Meanwhile, I earned a doctorate in English at UC Santa Barbara, taught the "Great Books" program at St. John's College in Santa Fe and Annapolis, became a political activist, and founded a popular singles club ...
