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 ...

RULES OF PRIVILEGE is my third legal thriller, and fourth thriller overall (third issued by Savant Books), following KANAKA BLUES, MANIFEST INTENT, and WRONGFUL TERMINATION.

The world of law and lawyers is a fertile field for novels of this ilk, and some would say it’s really not much of a stretch for an attorney to write fiction. Fortunately, I also try my hand at non-fiction, having ghostwritten Murphy Martin’s memoir of his years in journalism, FRONT ROW SEAT: A VETERAN REPORTER RELIVE...

Meet Chan Kim Author Ilan Herman

Posted by Daniel S. on Monday, May 9, 2011, In : Author Introduction 
I was jogging on the beach one autumn morning, the tide low and gray, when I saw an Asian woman standing barefoot in the sand, eyes set on the cloudy horizon. In her thirties, slender and youthful, she had dark hair in a thick braid and wore a light-brown dress that came down below her knees. I jogged by. I don’t think she noticed me. Her dreamy eyes seemed far, far away. I looked back one last time and took in her stoic gaze.

I wonder what she’s all about, I thought, and then I wrote a s...

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 ...

A New Face

Posted by Daniel S. on Monday, January 24, 2011, In : Just Released 
Introducing David B. Seaburn, author of the just-released, coming-of-age novel, CHARLIE NO FACE:

Hello All!

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. In the parish, though, I became a disciplined writer, having to produce a sermon each week, both a literary and theological task. The challenge was to write at the intersection of human experience and divin...

Today I Am A Savant Author

Posted by Daniel S. on Monday, December 21, 2009, In : Author Introduction 
Hello World,

It’s my pleasure to join the stable of writers here at Savant Books and Publications.

To me, writing has not been something I’ve always wanted to do, but something I’ve had to do. At various times writing has been an artistic outlet, a catharsis, and a place to run and hide in order to give me perspective. I...
