Author Spotlight Ken Stark 1. What inspired you to write a book? I’ve been writing since as far back as I can remember, so it’s hard to know exactly what inspired me. Probably a mixture of Twilight Zone reruns, monster movies, and the classic sci-fi stories I fell in love with as a kid by guys like Isaac Asimov and Arthur C Clarke.

Author Spotlight Nina Romano 1. What inspired you to write The Secret Language of Women? As a little girl I heard my Grandpa talk about China and how exotic it was. I saw a handsome picture of him in his sailor’s uniform. Since then, I’ve always wanted to travel to Asia, especially China, and I’m blessed because I’ve been to visit there several times. When I began writing fiction, I wanted to set a novel in China during the Boxer Rebellion, the war my grandfather fought in as a sailor in the Italian Navy. I have the gift of...Read More
