THE FANTASTICAL WORLD OF Z. ROUX

Posted by Daniel S. on Monday, May 15, 2017, In : Author Introduction 
We all come across a point in life where it becomes important to examine who we are and what we've achieved. I wrote a manuscript entitled "Cereus," following something similar to what many would call a mid-life crisis, despite not actually fitting the age group. I had examined the choices I'd made and found I'd been so set on paying my dues, ensuring a good career and juggling a fantastic family, that I had neglected the one thing I had been desperate to be my whole life—a published author...

NEED MORE TIME?

Posted by Daniel S. on Tuesday, July 21, 2015, In : Author Introduction 
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...

SUE DOLLERIS EXPANDS HER AUTHOR REPETIORE TO INCLUDE "THE LOONS"

Posted by Daniel S. on Tuesday, October 30, 2012, In : Author Introduction 
Like my first book, HELLO, NORMA JEAN (Savant 2010), THE LOONS (Savant 2012) also started out as a screenplay written several years ago. In converting THE LOONS into a contemporary comedy-of-errors novel, I worked hard to maintain the freshness of a play and the visuals of a movie. Reminiscent of the screwball comedies of the 1930s, THE LOONS is replete with heavy doses of love woven throughout the chaos.



As with HELLO, NORMA JEAN, I was excited that Savant Books and Publication saw promise i...

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 ...

KEYS IN THE RIVER

Posted by Daniel S. on Friday, August 10, 2012, In : Author Introduction 
When I was little, we would eat good food and then listen to stories. I was fortunate to have two of the best storytellers ever: My father’s mother told fables, horror, and zombie stories. Her stories were flights of fancy, intense and imaginative. My mother told real life stories of growing up in the fifties and sixties. Alternating between each of their homes (I lived with both) I heard the best of both worlds.



I remember as a child telling myself that when I grew up, I wanted to tell sto...

MARCANTONI RISING

Posted by Daniel S. on Thursday, June 28, 2012, In : Author Introduction 

I have been a freelance editor and writer since 2004. My first paid gigs were for writing short plays and film scripts for a small production company in Atlanta. A theatre-kid, I attended film school and upon graduating thought I was the king fish. Then the production company didn't produce any of the scripts they bought from me and eventually folded. The same thing occurred with several other projects, first a TV show, then a newspaper in Tampa, Florida, and then another TV show, "The Bleepi...

IN THE HIMALAYAN NIGHTS...

Posted by Daniel S. on Saturday, March 24, 2012, In : Author Introduction 
Dehradun City, Himalayas, India 1977: Two bright, complex, and beautiful U.S. female students accompany their Indian research professor to this city near the tense borders of China and Nepal. The girls question the holiness of the Bhagavad-Gita’s two polygamist avatars while watching the “holy-war” dance of the Mahabharata, its link to polygamy and local heroes (or villains?). The students fall in love with India and their friendly hosts but discover much more about thei...

Meet Mila Komarnisky

Posted by Daniel S. on Friday, April 8, 2011, In : Author Introduction 
I am native Ukrainian, and that's what my new historically-based novel, WRETCHED LAND, is all about. I came to Canada twenty years ago to meet my pen pal, Selmer Komarnisky. We eventually married and currently live in central Alberta.


The first few years in Canada were a time of adjustment. I was fortunate to meet a wonderful group of fellow Canadians, who helped me to feel at home. Trained in veterinary medicine in the Ukraine, I joined a doctoral program in Nutrition and Metabolism at the ...

Meet Author S. Stanley Gordon, His Two Wives and Three Husbands

Posted by Daniel S. on Tuesday, March 1, 2011, In : Author Introduction 

Even though I have had several distinctly different careers during my lifetime, never in my wildest dreams would I ever have imagined that being an author would crown my later year accomplishments. But here I am, in my eighties, having my first book published….and planning more.

Well, that just shows how exciting life can be if you are open to new adventures.  And if you have LOVE in your life.  With two wives and three husbands (and a few amours in-between) I have certainly known love….an...

Richer...and Richer!

Posted by Daniel S. on Tuesday, January 18, 2011, In : Author Introduction 
Rich Cameron kept trespassing into my thoughts like an uninvited but interesting guest.  He had so much more to say that was worth listening to, reading about, sharing with his audience - those who read POOR RICH (Savant, 2010) and those who haven’t - that everything else in my writing agenda took a back seat until Rich told this funny, gripping, sometimes hysterical, sometimes tearful, always delightful story.
It was like listening to a young adult telling an older, and wiser adult a story ...
