MEET AUTHOR ELIZABETH MCKAGUE

Posted by Daniel S. on Wednesday, January 30, 2019, In : Author Introduction 
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...

ROBERT FRIEDMAN: JOURNALIST/NOVELIST

Posted by Daniel S. on Friday, March 2, 2018, In : Author Introduction 

     While working as a journalist for the Stars and Stripes (Darmstadt, Germany), the Athens News (Greece), the San Juan Star (Puerto Rico) and the Daily News (New York), I often felt that the deeper truths of the news stories and the people involved escaped the journalistic form. Don't get me wrong, journalism—as practiced by the truly accurate, fair-minded, determined, judicious purveyors of history's (and I'd say in many cases, good literature's) first drafts—is as impo...

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,...

A CATE BURNS' TSUNAMI

Posted by Daniel S. on Tuesday, August 16, 2016, In : Author Introduction 
My writing and later authoring career began with "My Daily Diary," a padded pink vinyl diary with a well-used lock and key begun as soon as I could hold a pencil in my hand. Since then, I have filled many journals with life secrets, one volume being so unsettling to an inquisitive neighbor that she destroyed it rather than return it! It was in this way that I learned the power of truthful writing!


Luckily, I grew up in a family that loved word play, practical jokes and laughter. To this day, ...

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...

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...

HANS BRINCKMANN SPEAKS OUT

Posted by Daniel S. on Monday, July 28, 2014, In : Author Introduction 
Writing has been my lifeblood for as long as I’ve been halfway literate, which makes for about sixty-eight years. In 1946, at age fourteen, I launched a small magazine, "typeset" on a typewriter, creating carbon copies. I wrote poetry and essays and composed songs. Two years later, I edited the school magazine. I was determined to study literature and become a writer. But times were bleak.



Like much of Europe, Holland, the country of my birth, had been under German occupation. Post-war Europ...

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...

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...

Writing It Like It Is: BLOOD MONEY and Other Tales

Posted by Daniel S. on Tuesday, February 28, 2012, In : Author Introduction 
Hello, I am pleased to introduce myself to the published literary world. My name is Scott Mastro, and experience has taught me two things: become a writer only if you have to, and, if you want to be completely misunderstood, write fiction.



The path from writer to author has been a journey of both joy and despair, a struggle of the heart and spirit, a carnival ride of truth and various levels of convoluted B. S. I've learned there's not only an obligation to have something enduring to say, the...

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 ...

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 ...

The World of Lawyers and Their Manifest Intent

Posted by Daniel S. on Monday, December 6, 2010, In : Just Released 
After the release by Savant Books of my Hawaiian thriller, Kanaka Blues, with its backdrop of Hawaiian sovereignty, I have gone back to my roots.  Manifest Intent, my second Savant work, is set in the world of lawyers and law firms, which has been my world for over twenty-seven years.  John Grisham and Scott Turow may have invented the legal thriller genre, or at least popularized it wildly, but the legal world, with its own rules and language, is a natural for mysteries.  I hop...

Introducing W. C. Peever, Author of THE JUMPER CHRONICLES

Posted by Daniel S. on Tuesday, July 27, 2010, In : Just Released 
Dear Readers,

Thank you for taking the time to get to know me, though I guarantee my personal story is nowhere near as interesting as the stories I pen.  Perhaps it is for that very reason that I write.  I was born and raised in the small harbor town of Swampscott, Massachusetts, by my mother, a single parent, who gave all she could, often going without herself, and by my grandparents, both selfless people in their own right. Many would look at the paycheck my mother would bring home from her...

Gloria Schumann Delivers: CALLED HOME - TWO HEARTS ANSWER

Posted by Daniel S. on Saturday, May 8, 2010, In : Author Introduction 
Anticipation has been constantly building since I signed with Savant last summer to begin the publishing journey for CALLED HOME - TWO HEARTS ANSWER to release. Now, May 8, 2010, I'm thrilled to introduce a book that has been my significant companion over the past year and a half and has taken me on my own journey of learning and growth.



Romance is my genre; my first passion in books and movies. All categories interest me, but love grabs me all the time, and CALLED HOME - TWO HEARTS ANS...

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...

Larry Rodness, Proud Father of "Today I Am A Man"

Posted by Daniel S. on Sunday, February 7, 2010, In : Author Introduction 
Back in the late sixties my band was hired to perform at the opening of "Hair," the musical, in Toronto. For a musician to experience this seminal musical  about peace and love was a huge thrill, but let’s not kid ourselves - we were all there for the nude scene! The after-party was great and many of the cast came up and jammed with us into the wee small hours. From then on it seemed like every stage show had to have a nude scene.

I remember attending another such drama entitled "Dionysius ...

Today I Am A Savant Author

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...

It’s both a pleasure and an honor to be a part of the Savant Books & Publications Author’s Blog. But, it’s even a bigger thrill to introduce myself and my writing to you, the reading public.

I guess you could say that I’ve lived a pretty exciting and varied life; lots of places and experiences to draw from, all culminating with my first fiction novel, "Tropic of California: The Strains of Strauss."



I’m the original Southern California “dude” who, growing up, always enjoyed fun in ...
