MEET E. M. DUESEL

Posted by Daniel S. on Thursday, January 11, 2018, In : Just Released 
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

Posted by Daniel S. on Wednesday, October 4, 2017, In : Author Introduction 

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 ...

The Rebel Inside SADDAM'S PARROT

Posted by Daniel S. on Monday, June 12, 2017, In : Author Introduction 

I've been a rebellious, "misbehaving" individualist since childhood. It carries over to my writing which is dosed with irreverent characters caught up in mischief and troublemaking. Although I graduated from both Harvard and Berkeley and excelled in writing, it took many years for me to escape or maybe transcend dry and rigorous rationalism. 


For me this was actually a return to my individualist roots and the influences of both a mom and great uncle who were artists, terrific story-tellers and...

WELCOME SAVANT PROOFREADER HELEN R. DAVIS

Posted by Daniel S. on Friday, February 19, 2016, In : Staff Introduction 

Hi! I'm Helen R. Davis. I'm an award-winning Savant author, poet, and the editor of the 2015/16 Savant Poetry Anthology, RUNNING FROM THE PACK (Savant, pending release April 2016). 


It is my honor to also become a certified Savant proofreader. I'm personally interested in historical fiction of all kinds, but have a soft spot for the ancient and medieval world. I especially like helping to bring to life lively characters and civilizations often ignored in the history books. 


My own first nov...

AUTHOR DANIEL SCOTT ON GOING FOR THE PRIZE!

Posted by Daniel S. on Saturday, December 5, 2015, In : Author Introduction 

    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!

Posted by Daniel S. on Wednesday, December 2, 2015, In : Author Introduction 
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...

MR. MYSTERY AND INTRIGUE

Posted by Daniel S. on Monday, July 22, 2013, In : Author Introduction 
I have always wanted to write. More often than not, life opened other doors for me, though the door to a writing career always seemed closed.  I found myself in an assortment of fields to support my family, including industrial supervision, construction, and teaching. It was teaching that took up most of my adult life, and I still find myself immersed in it during my “retirement.”



My mother was my biggest writing motivator. She encouraged me to write poetry when I was in elementary school ...

RE-INTRODUCING MASTER STORYTELLER DAVID B. SEABURN

Posted by Daniel S. on Saturday, September 29, 2012, In : Author Introduction 
I have been writing for as long as I can remember. As a teen, in particular, I wrote awful poetry and tried to emulate Bob Dylan. I started writing seriously in 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. During my six year tenure as a parish minister, I became a disciplined writer, having to produce a sermon each week, both a literary and theological task. During this period I wrote many short ...

Autobiography of a Woman

Posted by Daniel S. on Monday, June 4, 2012, In : Author Introduction 

My passion for writing started when I developed a fascination with different alphabets in kindergarten. I became a good speller, and then, I was constantly at the library checking out wordy books with fascinating stories and memorable characters. I started writing poetry in the sixth grade. In middle school, my sister pointed out to me that I had a knack for rhythm and words. It wasn’t until my senior year of high school when a fellow student asked me to autograph a poem I...
