     Visitors to the Solimar Guest House in Puerto Rico are experiencing more than sun, sand and sea. They are grappling with ways—often quirky and manic, sometimes violent or profane, but always in what they consider the sincerest terms—to straighten out their off-kilter lives.


     The adventures of the island locals, the political exiles and the ex-pats born, raised in and fleeing from the U.S. are played out in different parts of the island—from the seaside guest house to the...

LIBIDO TSUNAMI: Awash with the Droll in Life is a collection of forty short stories exploring human tragedy, drama, vulnerability and adventure. In them, I salute the absurd and quirky in life through humor, using the pen name, Cate Burns, to honor (or defame) the lineage in my maternal family that dates back to the Scottish poet Robert Burns. The stories are grouped into four themes: A Flood of Family, Male Amazements, The Unknown Hawaii, and The Life Divine. From surviving complicated relat...

THE STORY OF ELAINE OF CORBENIC

Posted by Daniel S. on Friday, April 24, 2015, In : New Book Release 
Corbenic's valley lay hidden, in a corner of Lystenoys close by the sea, and it was not wholly by chance that any man found his way there, including Launcelot.

It was spring when he came; the hills of the valley were verdant, the gorse yellow all about, and the evening mists fragrant.  She was not looking for love that day…

She was Elaine, daughter of the fisher king and of the lineage of the grail keepers, and the mystery of the grail, the sacred cup that lay within Corbenic's walls, was in ...

VOLUTIONS

Posted by Daniel S. on Sunday, June 22, 2014, In : New Book Release 
If you read The Paris Review; if you listen to NPR; if Tom Robbins makes your head spin while your heart sinks because, face it, you'll never make woo-woo magic with words the way he does; if Keats, Yeats, Joyce, or maybe T.S Eliot is a favorite, you'll particularly love this year's Savant Poetry Anthology, VOLUTIONS.



Another way of saying this, is if you have ever loved anyone, anything or any place so rightly or so wrongly that it hurt, hated (yes, hated) injustice, or thought poetry ought...

Author Richard Rose talks about the evolution of THE LAZARUS CONSPIRACIES

Posted by Daniel S. on Monday, September 16, 2013, In : New Book Release 

When I first conceived the idea for The Lazarus Conspiracies, I wrote it as a film script under the title “The Lazarus Project.” The script tells the story of a maverick Chicago cop who is so obsessed with seeing justice done that he repeatedly breaks the rules of police conduct in order to catch the bad guys. The script was a top ten finalist in the Illinois/Chicago Screenwriting 2000 Competition.

A few years later I decided to expand the script into a novel. In the process, the character...

KEYS IN THE RIVER

Posted by Daniel S. on Friday, August 10, 2012, In : New Book Release 


“There are keys in the river.  Life is one long river, a pretty voice sings.”

Sometime during mid-1994, I started writing essays, poems, and short stories to help me pass the O-level English exams which I had failed a couple of times in the past. I never thought I was writing pieces that would be read; rather, I began writing simply as practice for this important exam, a rite of passage to higher education in Zimbabwe.

The works, however, continued to develop and evolve, as if they were st...

Alive and Aware, Living Life as It Really Is

Posted by Daniel S. on Monday, June 4, 2012, In : New Book Release 

ON MY BEHALF was never meant to be published. It was merely a journal for my venting. Nothing formal. My intent was to bring my life to light to myself and hopefully band-aid some old gaping wounds.

As I was writing, however, I had an epiphany. I thought ever-so-reluctantly: What if my story mattered to someone, even helped them to realize things about themselves that would have otherwise been swept under the rug and ignored? Wouldn’t that be worth publishing? It suddenl...

RULES OF PRIVILEGE

Posted by Daniel S. on Sunday, May 6, 2012, In : New Book Release 
As I mentioned just before Savant Books released my previous novel, MANIFEST INTENT, I had returned to my roots as a lawyer after my first novel, the Hawaiian thriller KANAKA BLUES.  My newest work, RULES OF PRIVILEGE, stays in that world, but strays from the environment of the big law firm into the orbit of solo practitioners, who sometimes struggle just to stay afloat. 



While the problems of large and small firms often are radically different, all lawyers, no matter the size of their firms,...

MY TWO WIVES AND THREE HUSBANDS

Posted by Daniel S. on Tuesday, March 1, 2011, In : New Book Release 

Not many people have had multiple wives AND husbands, as I have had, so MY TWO WIVES AND THREE HUSBANDS may be an eye-opener. Mae West once said to me, “I owe it all to dirty living!” and in her case, as well as mine, it’s not just funny, it’s true. That is, if “dirty” means “unconventional."

I believe people were meant to enjoy life, and I've tried to share my sense of joy, discovery and wonder in this, my love story. In addition to my human loves, I was also been ensnared by t...
