"My writing strives to capture what’s going on in our society right now, without being heavy-handed or on the nose. I try to use humor and even some satire to shine a light on some of the darker forces bubbling beneath the surface. I believe doing that is a fiction writer’s most important job."
MATTHEW BLOOM - author of the SALT OF THE NATION Read more

"I keep in mind that people often hear their own stories when they read. I also deem important to write a compelling story well and keep the reader continually in the story. In other words, the writing itself is important to me, not just the subject."
JORAM PIATIGORSKY - author of THE SPEED OF DARK and THE OPEN DOOR Read more

"I have these ‘scenes’, or ‘sketches’ in my mind, they´re like short dialogues between two people, something very brief, without any consequence, and I never imagine that is going to turn into something. They keep coming to my mind, though, especially in the quiet of the night (I don´t call it insomnia ‘cause that´s when I get my best inspiration!)."
CINDY STOCKLER - author of the CALLIOPE: THE SLAVE FROM ATHENS, ALMA MATER, and OPERATION CAIPIROSKA

"I would like to think that at its best, my writing unites certain timeless qualities of storytelling with highly contemporary subjects and themes, and it illustrates why fiction writers always have a place, why people will always need storytellers to help them forge a path through the dark." MICHAEL WASHBURN - author of the UPROOTED, WHEN WE'RE GROWNUPS, and STRANGER, STRANGER

"The violent, the victimized, the glorified and the ignored cannot really be understood if they are not seen in their vital juxtapositions. The many points of view taken in this novel are an attempt by one author to allow competing voices to speak for themselves – sometimes in chorus, sometimes in contradiction. To me, taking only one of these viewpoints would be implicitly to discredit any other."
JOHN BALLAM - author of the MARY'S HOUSE

"For me, the most telling review I ever received was one simple sentence: “A writer with an enormous sense of humanity.” I am proud of that. I hope I can always live up to it. Themes in my work? Fathers and sons. Family. Self-discovery." DAVID W. BERNER - author of THE CONSEQUENCE OF STARS and THINGS BEHIND THE SUN

"Keep writing. Like anything else in life, repetition catalyzes improvement. That's the first thing. Second, go back through your work as often as is realistically possible. Put yourself in your readers' shoes. You will almost always find ways to improve what you've written."
JOHN CASEY, author of RAW THOUGHTS, RAW THOUGHTS: CODA, and DEVOLUTION TRILOGY

"Calvino, especially, speaks of how sadness and profundity and humor are entwined; how seriousness is best expressed in a lighter register.  I think humor and an ironic stance only serve to underscore the tragic.
I think in musical terms, still, and tend to rely on musical structures or concepts in my writing – for instance, recursion, leitmotif, theme and variations, or riffing off words or sentences as in jazz."
CAROL LaHINES, author of SOMEDAY EVERYTHING
WILL ALL MAKE SENSE

"My work is, at heart, about the struggles people go through in life.  Psychological and ethical issues intrigue me.  I lay out individual's concerns, their highs and lows, their strengths and weaknesses, where they have succeeded and where they have failed.  I try to give a realistic and comprehensive picture of whichever character I am writing about."
SUSAN POLLET, author of LESSONS IN SURVIVAL:
ALL ABOUT AMOS, THROUGH WALTER'S LENS. and WOMEN IN CRISIS: STORIES FROM THE EDGE
Read more

 

"Coming from a journalism background, I write realistic fiction that explores what makes us human. I also try to distill my characters’ dreams. The Other Side of Sanctuary is about a young family in crisis and the tensions that arise as a dark series of events unfolds. Rob and Laura Sanders search for answers, unaware that they’re traveling toward a collision that will either save or shatter their vulnerable family, or maybe—both."
CHERYL CRABB, author of THE OTHER SIDE OF SANCTUARY

"When I was in grad school I read Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals.  Like many children of the 60s I set out, after college, to save the world.  I became an Alinsky style organizer.  Redlined was inspired by a successful organizing campaign I ran in Boston in 1974-75."
RICHARD W. WISE, author of REDLINED

“I try to tell the historic or personal truth in an exciting and thrilling way.” – ALEXANDER GÜNSBERG, author of the MISCHA TUROW, JEWISH STORIES, THE EISENSTADT FILE, VEXIERE DANCE, and JEWISH LOVE STORIES
