I was very lucky to have Mr. Donaldson as my ninth grade English teacher. He taught me that writing was not a chore, but rather an opportunity to explore. He taught his students that when you read a book you follow someone’s path, but when you write, you get to explore. I thank him for sharing his love of language and storytelling, laying it out there for us to pick up. As an author and playwright, I explore new realms, learn, and, when I do it well, I get to touch lives. I am always curious at the end of a book, movie, or play about what happens next.

I have enjoyed storytelling, authoring and playwriting since then. When I first got involved with Stage III Community Theatre, I discovered even more ways to touch the heart of the audience, as evidenced in I'LL REMEMBER (Aignos 2019), my first screenplay-novel. I continue to meet creative storytellers and staff who encourage me to practice the gift given me so many years ago.

During my "other" life, I have worked as legislative staffer, mortgage broker, radio disc jockey and workforce specialist, helping people create a resume, which, if you think about it, is a way of helping people tell their story.

Writing has been my passion since boyhood. It was nourished at Wabash College, an all-male liberal arts college in Indiana. While earning a BA degree in English, I wrote short stories and satiric articles for the literary and humor magazines. Following a three-year hitch in the Army Security Agency on the East/West German border, I embarked on a long career as a First V.P. with a major investment firm in Chicago, where I wrote and announced market reports on TV and radio. Although show biz wa...

My authoring career began with studying television writing at UCLA and resulted in a number of short fiction works for CBS TV and other television production companies. But it was my personal experiences gained during service with British intelligence in Eastern Europe and the Middle East that provided the raw fodder for my both my Koski and Falk, and later Kate Keenan Special Assignment series of books. 

Many readers have asked me where my characters came from. The concept came from ...

Part of the reason why I write a book is because it needs to exist and personally, I really want to read it! I half-jokingly believe that the artist is like a puzzle with one piece missing, perhaps stolen by an unseen power, and this individual will then spend the rest of their life creating works in an effort to try to get that piece back. I’ll confess that I am a hopeless romantic and my works often display that stamp. 

I have been writing for 45 years, since I was nine. I have an MFA in C...

Helen R. Davis has been intrigued by ancient Egypt since her teen years. She remembers reading several teen biographies on Cleopatra VII, final queen of Egypt, in high school and wondering how the story could have worked in Cleopatra’s favor.  

After graduating from college in 2009, Davis was finally able to sit down and re-imagine the story of the final queen of Egypt as a victory and not a defeat.  What follows is the Savant Books and Publications' "Cleopatra Re-Imagined" Series, which fol...

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 t...
