Author Spotlight: Ken Stark

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. I guess some part of me was always trying to escape the mundane, so I was forever trying to create new worlds and new realities. I’m sure the rest of it will all come out in...

Author Spotlight: David W. Thompson

Author Spotlight: David W. Thompson   1.  What inspired you to write a book?    I’ve always enjoyed writing, both as a creative outlet and as a spiritual tonic. I chose the story of Moll Dyer for my first novel as it’s been near to my heart for as long as I can remember. Her story is tragic, and her name has been tarnished for three centuries. Her crime was non- conformance and she became a condemned pariah. Seeking only peace, she found terror in a land founded on tolerance. What a hypocritical world! Some things don’t change, but...

Author Spotlight: Nina Romano

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...
