ALOHA LA'A KEA - 2020 SAVANT POETRY ANTHOLOGY IS HERE!

July 9, 2020
This year's anthology came into being during challenging times, epitomized by the COVID-19 pandemic. People everywhere are being forced to rethink every aspect of society and their individual lives. Without the selfless, tireless assistance of Savant Books and Publications, this year's anthology might never have risen above the vicissitudes of the times. I also want to acknowledge the devoted assistance of the numerous native Hawaiian and religious poets who helped bring this "praise" work together as an egalitarian acclamation of life.


Eighty-six outstanding poems by thirty-five remarkable poets including Greg Dasalla, Garrett Uehara, Moses Pilla, Malia Elliott, Nicole Maika’i-St. Louis, Jay Palompo, Ken Rasti, James Andrade, Dorothy Winslow Wright, Skyla Reyes, Karen Sisler, Hongri Yuan, Daniel S. Janik, Rüdiger Herzing Rückmann, Chuck St. Louis, Michael Lau, Milionea Toluao, Christopher Scott Halicion, Brent Kutara, Uhene, Miranda Zhang, Sidney Esperas, Paul Giovenco, Eddie Aribon, Chino Villa, Cathy A. Schultz, Kimo Dunn, Kaethe Kauffman, Serena Saleh, Cigeng Zhang, Martin Estaban, Mike Patelo, Mark Kempf, Abram Rocky Horner and Conner Maika'i-St. Louis are offered in the largest (200+ page) anthology to date.

WORTH REMEMBERING

December 22, 2019
How does one write about the biggest event in human history...and make it real? How to show the impact of author Anne Frank and her diary on the world? Or, why did so many people follow Hitler?

Working with a cast and crew to bring the answers to these poignant questions and I'LL REMEMBER (Aignos 2019) -- my screenplay-novel -- to life was a daunting task but worth it.


This is the story of a young boy, at the beginning of his awkward teenage years, starting to question and to learn about the ...

2019 SAVANT POETS ENTWINED

June 14, 2019

Entwined...

To wind, twist together...interweave. Our relationships and the people who enter and exit our lives that become the fabric of the condition we wear.

The creation of poetry comes of this fabric as well; the soft silkiness of love, the chafing of rough times, the cutting edges of betrayal and lies, the warmth given by a loved one’s arms or a child’s embrace.

And so entwined we all are, like it or not. This edition for Savant explores that fabric, the threads and material...

68 VIA CONDOTTI: THE VATICAN SECRET SERVICE

March 29, 2019
The three-book 68 VIA CONDOTTI series featuring Kate Keenan on special assignment with a cameo appearance by Koski and Falk simply had to be written. Years ago, when I visited and toured the Vatican, I was impressed by a nondescript entrance not far from the Spanish Steps marked simply "68 Via Condotti." Ostensibly, the extraterritorial headquarters of the Sovereign Military Order of Malta, I became intrigued by rumors that the Order, with it's extensive diplomatic connections, might be hosti...
