Can creative writing really be taught?

There are a number of creative writing courses popping up, some at Universities, some even being run by Literary Agents and Publishers and others by authors, including myself on 18 June at Quay Arts Centre, Newport, Isle of Wight, when I will be instructing on How to Write a Crime Novel.  But can creative writing really be taught?



All writers approach their work differently so there is no right…

Author Update

My book signing Saturday was both

successful and enjoyable. Borders in Annapolis is a big store that offers

authors a small space from which to greet readers, but all the folks I met were

enthusiastic about my latest novel. If they had my other titles I'd have done

much better, but I did come close to running out of books. That, plus visits

from a couple of very…

Memorial Day greetings

Memorial Day is the kind of holiday that begs us to make a powerful statement, but I

think all the important things have already been said. Thomas Campbell said that

the patriot's blood is the seed of Freedom's tree. Joseph Campbell told us that

a hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than

oneself. Aaron Kilbourn said that the dead soldier's silence…

Help! My Husband & His Friends are talking to many "Literary Liberties" with my Person.

I had to push my husband, Mr.Gelati, away from the laptop for a bit and speak up here. He, and his buddies Vincent Zandri (I always thought you liked me Vince, you seemed so nice), Big Daddy Abel, Thomas White, Benjamin Sobieck and now Thad Brown, some of whom have gone to great lengths to do various things to me in their little stories are up to their antics again.  For those that have yet to read one of these “The Author’s Lab/Collaborations”, they are funny but at whose expense? At times…

Around the Globe with CYNTHIA POLANSKY

It's a sunny but cool Friday and I'm looking for warmer climes. So I hop in my transporter and pick up this week's author, Cynthia Polansky. She gives me directions which fulfills my desires. Soon, we are sitting on a veranda outside a fashionable hotel in Tahiti. The water is absolutely gorgeous, the air is clean, and the sun is warm. She hands me a passion-fruit punch and we begin the questions.



1. Who is Cynthia Polansky and what makes you the most fascinating person in your… Continue

Meet Me in MD tomorrow

Tomorrow my Maryland friends will be able to find me at Borders in Annapolis.  The store, at 1115 Annapolis Mall is just three miles from the U.S. Naval Academy.  You can enjoy a cup of coffee at their Seattle's Best Cafe and browse their extensive book, CD and DVD collections.  They have a great local interest section and lots of autographed novels from local authors. And Saturday I will be happy to sign any of my novels for you in person.  Just visit between 1pm to 5pm.

B.R. Stateham The Author's Spotlight

I am planning on running this new segment on Tuesdays and Thursdays. The Author’s Spotlights posts are fun to think about and put together, especially when I have had a chance to actually work closely with the author; that is the case today, so forgive my biased comments. Right off the bat I am going to tell you I enjoy B.R.’s work and have since I pretty much read his first paragraph. The thing about his writing and style though is that it crosses many genres, many styles of taste, and is…

Author Update

Few experiences are better than spending time in an independent bookstore. That was my Saturday afternoon at One More Page. aside from fine wines and gourmet chocolates the store offers a wonderful collection of great reads. I enjoyed meeting some of their customers and a look around told me that they were indeed discriminating readers. One big clue: New York Times best sellers were not prominently featured. In fact, the few in the store were on the discount cart!
