Peace or Piece?

Linda F.Introducing another author you wish you knew. Linda Freudenthal

Interview Question: Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?

Waiting for the Right Star

David BowmoreHere’s another author you wish you knew! David Bowmore.

Question: Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?

David Bowmore: “Two years ago, it was called Stargazer, about a man who dreamed his whole life to visit the stars. I even submitted it to Asimov magazine. Needless to say, it was rejected and when I read it recently I can see why. Utter tripe!”

Since then David won a publishing contract with Clarendon House Books for “Sins of the Father,” a story he submitted to the Clarendon House “Vortex” anthology in 2018. His story was voted best in the anthology. His book, “The Magic of Deben Market” has just been released!

Jesi ElkinsHere’s another author you wish you knew! Jesi Elkins. Interview Question: Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?

Jesi Elkins – My first story was “Cerberus” about the three-headed hound that guards the gates of Hades. Only this one was born to a wolf and terrorized a small town. I was 12. The story was destroyed by Hurricane Ike. Just a memory now.
