Introduction to Our Guest Bloggers

Every Wednesday we hope to present a guest blogger who presents their unique view of writing. Enmeshed in writing, the four blogging authors of this site provide an “in the trenches” viewpoint. Our guests provide a larger vantage and are readers, writers of other genres, published authors and other professionals within the field of writing or publishing.

D. E. Davis: We are related by marriage, but started out and remain friends.  I have known Diane for forty years and find it hard to describe the influence she has had on my development as a reader and a writer. She introduced me to the genre of murder mystery at a time when I floundered for interesting reading material. Needless to say, that introduction went well, and I found so many fascinating authors to read and admire, I started writing in this genre myself. Diane won a poetry contest for the State of Pennsylvania, featuring a young man who gave her the finger for no apparent reason. For the past ten years, Diane has worked within the library system to ensure that they acquire the books she wants to read for free. Being no one’s fool, she reviews a lot of my work and when others can’t quite make a determination, she hones in on the link I have missed or crucial element that eludes me.

George Koelsch: George and I met via a local writers’ workshop and, although we write different genres, formed a writers’ group. Even though novel writing has common factors that go beyond genres, the group struggled for six months before folding, even though it had lasted for over twenty years. It failed for various reasons, none of which had anything to do with our writing, and for the most part, we were the only writers, which is probably the revealing fact. The group had degenerated into more a social gather that grudgingly allowed some discussions of writing, the major reason. George writes two science fiction series, one featuring a female superhero, the other…well picture Captain Kirk if he were a Viking (and better looking). His books have raised interest in editors of the science fiction genre, and I expect you will find at least one of his series in print before long. His picture, in Viking regalia, is on facebook.com. Bouncing ideas and impressions to George always results in three-degree sonic returns. Lift a tankard of mead, and welcome George as our guest.
