MEET AIGNOS AUTHOR NATALIE ROERS

Posted by Daniel S. on Friday, July 7, 2017, In : Author Introduction 
As a professional actress, journalist, television news anchor, and voice over artist, I've spent nearly two-thirds of my life telling other people's stories; I'm now bursting at the seams to tell my own! My latest released title, BENEATH THEM, is my first release through Aignos Publishing, an imprint of Savant Books and Publications. BENEATH THEM (Aignos 2017) is a young adult thriller about a mentally disturbed young man who secretly moves into the crawl space underneath the home of a happy,...

RICHARD ROSE - THE ULTIMATE DETECTIVE STORY WRITER

Posted by Daniel S. on Monday, February 13, 2017, In : Author Introduction 

My passion for writing began after a typical small town boyhood in Kokomo, Indiana. Paper routes, basketball, teen dances and too many greasy French fries were followed by a BA degree at Wabash College, a small liberal arts college for men just down the road from Purdue. As an English major, I contributed cartoons and satiric articles for the humor magazine and short stories for the more serious literary publication.

After graduation and a summer adventure selling Bibles from door to door in ...

MEDIEVAL LEGEND REAWAKENED

Posted by Daniel S. on Friday, April 24, 2015, In : Author Introduction 
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...

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...

Meet Savant Author Jim Currie

Posted by Daniel S. on Wednesday, March 9, 2011, In : Author Introduction 
For as long as I can remember, writing has been both an extension of imagination and a way of figuring out what I truly believe.  Through high school journalism I quickly discovered that I enjoyed the challenges of deadlines and trying to figure out the hidden and compelling drama behind the most ordinary stories.  I guess in this sense writing was a form of both puzzle solving and exploration—and a chance to do it with elan and personality. 


This penchant for letting writing lead a...

THE MYTHICAL VOYAGE OF ROBIN YMER

Posted by Daniel S. on Friday, December 10, 2010, In : Author Introduction 
A French native, Robin Ymer, (Claude Aguilera's pen name for her mythical children's fantasy, MYTHICAL VOYAGE: THE TALE OF THE WHITE PONCA), spent her formative years in North Africa and France. Early in life, she manifested an interest in art. A dreamer and mediocre student in high school, she eventually boarded at the conservative "Maison de la Legion d'Honneur" in Saint Denis. There, Robin spent her free time drawing, and, after a summer stay in Sidmouth, England, she decided to study lang...

Meet Gloria Schumann, Author of CALLED HOME

Posted by Daniel S. on Monday, April 12, 2010, In : Author Introduction 
Gloria Schumann called to write CALLED HOME - TWO HEARTS ANSWER

Words for descriptions, words for feelings, words for actions—all run through my head around, above, amongst the characters that drive the need for these words. My imagination is ever at the ready to take off into the magical world of fiction. My characters are kind, compulsive, intense, base, philanthropic, rude, giving and forgiving. The situations are as varied and entertaining as the characters. This world is where I am c...
