Fiction Writers

This is my links page.  These are writers I read and friends who also have blogs and friends of mine who are writers, not necessarily script writers.

CW Thomas.
I haven’t know Craig long and I met him through a college friend who writes children’s books mostly. Once I was introduced to Craig’s fantasy writing I was hooked.  If you are into fantasy and adventure, this is the guy to read.  His characters are well thought out.  His stories gripping and he leaves you holding your breath and wanting more.  Currently he’s writing a trilogy.

Kim Ward.

It seems like I’ve known Kim forever, well that’s because I have, or at least since college.  This woman is uniquely gifted in so many ways.  She acts, writes plays, directs plays, choreographs and runs her own non profit for playwrights called the Vermont Playwrights Circle.  Oh and did I mention, that she does stand up too.  She also has her own blog.

Matt Forrest.

I have known Matt from way back in the early portion of my radio career. We worked close to ten years in St. Albans Vermont. Until I reconnected with Matt on facebook, I never knew Matt had this interest in children’s books. Check his site out.

Tanya Sousa.

Tanya is another writer I have known since college. She hails from the NEK in Vermont. Tanya is a vibrant writer with a strong sense of the world around her and how we an animals fit together. She wrote this great book called the Starling God which reminds one of Watership Down, a personal favorite of mine when I was a kid. Tanya doesn’t have an actual website but she can be found at

Leigh Podgorski.

I reconnected with my Dad’s former theater student on the NEC Alumni Facebook page. Imagine my surprise. I knew Leigh when I was a little guy and my Dad started a little college theatre troupe in Arundel England. Leigh was chosen to be part of that troupe. Of course I didn’t know she was heavily into writing back then and has quite a few books under her belt. Leight has also been a very valuable ear for me about my own writing. It’s also really interesting that her Stone Quest series has appealed to me, because it’s the sort of thing I would definitely read. I recommend Leigh. I’ve read Desert Chimera part of her Stone Quest series.

Desert Chimera, the first book in the Stone Quest Series, introduces the reader to recluse, tracker, and reluctant twenty-eight year old psychic visionary Luke Stone and to his paranormal universe. Luke has been sequestered in the serene woods of Northern Michigan under the tutelage of Cherokee guide Shadow Wolf. When the shaman suddenly dies, Luke flees on a desperate cross-country quest that takes him to the heart of Death Valley.There, Luke is assaulted by terrifying visions of the apocalypse. While praying in agony for release, a shimmering specter arises from the sands to stand beside him. But this is not the one Luke has sought. Instead, this is the One from whom Luke had escaped seven long years ago, the black magician and his arch nemesis Armand Jacobi.

Torrential rains flood; rivers of mud flow. Luke is forsaken. But deep within the cacophony of the storm, Luke hears a voice calling. Following the call, Luke stumbles out of the wilderness and into Eppie Falco’s Desert Inn and Café.

Gathered here also seeking shelter from the storm are an array of fellow travelers. However, upon a clap of thunder and a burst of lightning, the café door swings open and Armand Jacobi, the charismatic black magician Luke had seen as the vision in the desert in the desert and the man from whom he had run now stands before him in the flesh.

Among the travelers whom Armand eventually takes hostage in his struggle with Luke is Consuelo Arroyo, a woman whose life Armand threatens, a woman with whom Luke is falling in love, something he’d never thought would be possible for him.

As Luke’s battle with Armand heightens, Luke is confronted with the full horrors of his past. The battle that rages will culminate in either Luke’s final destruction or his ultimate redemption.

If that doesn’t intrigue you, nothing will.
