As a work-at-home editor/writer/author coach, I tend to become a tad uncivilized and antisocial. As in, “How many days have I worn this sweatshirt?” Or I’ll catch myself asking the pup questions that are above her reading level and pay grade.
Author Dana Killion has published three thrillers in the Andrea Kellner series. Like her lead character, Dana is a Chicago resident. Her fourth book, “Tell Me a Lie,” will be out in January.
Tokyo-based author Michael Pronko has written two thrillers in the Detective Hiroshi series, “The Last Train” and “The Moving Blade.” He’s at work on book three.
For as long as I live, I’ll remember the exhilaration of reading a handful of books as a boy: Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Danny and the Champions of the World, Charlotte’s Web, The Chronicles of Narnia and others.
Like most serendipitous life events, meeting author Alice Lewis, editing her book, becoming friends, and falling in love with her village of Yachats, Oregon, did not follow a linear path. But these occurrences began when I took on the edit of Lewis’ work-in-progress, “Ghosts of Yachats.” Billed as a paranormal romance/ghost story, I wasn’t sure what to expect from that unique genre description. Lewis and I met via email and discussed the work required to hit that coveted finish line of publication.
