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...

KEITH R. REES GOES FOR ONE NIGHT IN BANGKOK

Posted by Daniel S. on Friday, June 15, 2018, In : Author Introduction 
I've always been a storyteller. Even before I knew I could be a writer I loved telling stories. In summers during my college days I worked as a counselor at summer camp for kids in East Texas. Each night at bedtime in our cabin, I would sit in the middle of the floor and tell the kids science fiction stories about outer space. The kids were never so quiet until these times as they would hang on my every word. And each night after that, they would all remind me where I left off the night befor...

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...

INTRODUCING NOVELIST LYNNE MCKELVEY

Posted by Daniel S. on Wednesday, October 4, 2017, In : Author Introduction 

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 ...

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 ...

RESEARCH AND FEELINGS - BENTLEY GATES

Posted by Daniel S. on Friday, September 5, 2014, In : Just Released 
My life has been immersed in books as long as I can remember. My father was a freelance magazine writer. My parents met at a publishing company where he was a researcher and she was an administrative assistant. I grew up in a home where books were treasured; bookshelves lined the walls and hallways, and overflowed with tomes of myriad genres. As a youngster I wrote short stories and novelettes to entertain myself and my friends. But the time available for writing was quickly taken over after ...

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...

Meet Thriller Author Mike Farris

Posted by Daniel S. on Tuesday, May 25, 2010, In : Author Introduction

I am currently Of Counsel to the Dallas, Texas, law firm of Tipton Jones, where my practice includes complex commercial litigation as well as entertainment law, focusing on the movie and publishing industries.



But it’s the world of books and movies that is truly my passion. In addition to my practice at Tipton Jones, my wife Susan, also an attorney, and I...

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 ...
