AUTHOR OF PRINCESSES

Posted by Daniel S. on Thursday, September 20, 2018, In : Author Introduction 

THE PRINCESS IN MY HEAD (Aignos 2018) is my third novel, and a departure from my mysteries published so far.  I usually draw from my years as an F.B.I Special Agent for characters and plots that are full of bombs, task forces and financial crime.  In my middle grade Novel and Screenplay, I believe that Princess Aqualine and Princess Allison wanted to tell a different story – one that could entertain as well as help kids solve their own problems and respond to the problems of adults around t...

MEET E. M. DUESEL

Posted by Daniel S. on Thursday, January 11, 2018, In : Just Released 
As a young adult, E. M. Duesel thoroughly enjoyed acting and dancing, and had the great fortune of being on stage for about six years. During those years, she learned character development and definition. This later became very useful in her writing. With her career as a sociologist, she has been able to combine real life experiences with research into informative and relevant stories, churning personalities she has met along the way into characters with deeply meaningful connections to the n...

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 ...

INTRODUCING CO-AUTHORS ERIK AND FOREST BRACHT

Posted by Daniel S. on Friday, December 2, 2016, In : Author Introduction 

   For me, there is nothing quite as inspiring as nature, a child, nature and imagination.

   We all have different aspects to our identity that need expression, and writing THE ADVENTURES OF PURPLE HEAD, BUDDHA MONKEY AND STICKY FEET (Savant 2016) filled a need to express my love of nature in the voice of my inner child. I was an active youth, but the closer I got to adulthood, the less time I had to wander and imagine. When my son expressed interest in nature, the opportunity presented to r...

CRAZY LIKE ME? YOU DECIDE!

Posted by Daniel S. on Thursday, August 6, 2015, In : Author Introduction 

If I were to diagnose myself based on the first story I ever wrote, I'd go with narcissistic idealist. This is a professional classification within the psychiatric lexicon of personality disorders.


Long before I knew anything about such pathologies, I wrote a book about an aardvark. Its title, a real grabber, was "Nire, the Purple Aardvark." Always one to see the world backwards, it doesn't surprise me that I named my quirky protagonist after myself, spelled in reverse. Six-year-old me was s...

BALLET WITH THE BIRDS

Posted by Daniel S. on Tuesday, June 30, 2015, In : Author Introduction 

My first published work, Ballerina Birdies, is being released just as I am about to give birth to my first baby -- July 2015! Both of them came to fruition with, love, patience, and a great team! Ballerina Birdies, couldn't have a better editor, illustrator or publisher! And to have found them all here locally is just amazing.


My desire to write a children's book came first, I just needed a place to start. I often recited a rhyme here and there about birdies to amuse the children I nannied. ...
