AUTHOR DANIEL SCOTT ON GOING FOR THE PRIZE!

December 5, 2015

    My first published writing credit came when as a kid I had a letter to the editor published in a "Superman" comic book. Later, I started writing art reviews for a neighborhood newspaper. I made twenty dollars an article. I didn't even have a bank account at the time, but the bank at the corner cashed the weekly checks for me anyway. Far more meaningful to me, though, was having my byline in print. The newspaper gig led to writing for other publications, including "Art News" and "Art New E...

HELEN R. DAVIS' - HISTORY OR ALTERNATIVE HISTORY? YOU DECIDE!

December 2, 2015
Author Helen Davis has been writing since the age of twenty.

An interest in strong women protagonists led her to write and publish EVITA: MY LIFE (Booksurge, 2009), an historical novel about legendary Evita Peron.

Intrigued by the legend of Cleopatra since she was in high school, as EVITA was released, Davis took up pen and began work on another historical novel surrounding this queen who sought to control nations in an era in which women had little power. A polyglot herself, the author, in t...

CRAZY LIKE ME? YOU DECIDE!

August 6, 2015

If I were to diagnose myself based on the first story I ever wrote, I'd go with narcissistic idealist. This is a professional classification within the psychiatric lexicon of personality disorders.


Long before I knew anything about such pathologies, I wrote a book about an aardvark. Its title, a real grabber, was "Nire, the Purple Aardvark." Always one to see the world backwards, it doesn't surprise me that I named my quirky protagonist after myself, spelled in reverse. Six-year-old me was s...

NEED MORE TIME?

July 21, 2015
I started writing seriously when I entered seminary at Boston University in 1972. There I was published for the first time -- a series of poems in an alumni journal, work lost long ago. As a parish minister, though, I became a disciplined writer, having to produce a sermon each week, a literary and theological task.



The challenge was to write at the intersection of human experience and divine response. During this period I wrote many short stories, song lyrics, poems and two nonfiction manusc...

BALLET WITH THE BIRDS

June 30, 2015

My first published work, Ballerina Birdies, is being released just as I am about to give birth to my first baby -- July 2015! Both of them came to fruition with, love, patience, and a great team! Ballerina Birdies, couldn't have a better editor, illustrator or publisher! And to have found them all here locally is just amazing.


My desire to write a children's book came first, I just needed a place to start. I often recited a rhyme here and there about birdies to amuse the children I nannied. ...

MEDIEVAL LEGEND REAWAKENED

April 24, 2015
The story of ELAINE OF CORBENIC wrote itself over the course of a few months one spring long ago. It was within a year of my arrival to the Bay Area. Its opening lines wrote themselves the sunlit afternoons as I climbed among the gorse covered hills of a green spring, my own young son in tow.  I remember working long hours during the nights of midsummer, with an urgency to bring it to completion lest anything happen to me. I was not facing a terminal illness, so don't ask me why the thought e...

A FLIGHT OF DESTINY

April 8, 2015
What better way to handle all my angst than to pour them into short stories.

Born in a commuter belt city called Reading, like many a middle or upper class child of such times, I was shunted off to an all-male boarding school aged eight, away from my parents for periods of up to twelve weeks at a time. In such an institutions, where I was to rest until my seventeenth year, there was no getting away from the cruel jibes hurled at me from taunting tormentors. My refuge was the arts room, where ...

Sabrina Favors for WRITTEN IN THE STARS

March 18, 2015
"There is a tradition of story-telling that is passed on from grandparents to grandkids. We stay and they tell. When we stay with parents, they are too busy to tell us stories. And in Hawai'i, kids stay with their parents, not their grandparents, so aren't told as many stories.



Many of the contributors to this anthology come from a Chuukese background, where story-telling is the responsibility of grandparents to grandchildren. Living in the United States, where the family structure is altered...

RESEARCH AND FEELINGS - BENTLEY GATES

September 5, 2014
My life has been immersed in books as long as I can remember. My father was a freelance magazine writer. My parents met at a publishing company where he was a researcher and she was an administrative assistant. I grew up in a home where books were treasured; bookshelves lined the walls and hallways, and overflowed with tomes of myriad genres. As a youngster I wrote short stories and novelettes to entertain myself and my friends. But the time available for writing was quickly taken over after ...
