  • Interview with KJ Steele, Author of "No Story to Tell"

    About KJ Steele

    KJ Steele is an emerging writer who has learned that the process is not so much about choosing what to write as it is about having the courage to write what chooses to be written. Having spent the first half of her life creating an amazing family with her husband, Victor, she intends to spend the rest of it creating equally amazing fiction.

    What books have most influenced your life most?

    The first book that really warped me into its world was a young adolescence book, Fury and the Mustangs by Albert G. Miller. As a young girl, I loved being pulled into that world, and it fascinated me that mere words on a page had that sort of power.

    Joseph Conrad's Heart of Darkness also had a very strong impact on me. It was while reading that novel that I first became aware of the layers of meaning hidden in the text. I felt like I had gained x-ray vision! This was the book that truly opened me up to the wondrous complexity and insights woven into a literary piece

  • Adventure on a DARE by Fritz Sprandel Book Spotlight

    About Fritz Sprandel

    Fritz Sprandel was born in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania and grew up in Allentown, Pennsylvania with his mother and two older brothers. Unfortunately, his family often didn't realize his potential or affirm his value. Fritz's brothers would bait him with dares that Fritz took them up on, which meant he was always in trouble. He was definitely the black sheep of the family.

    Besides thriving on dares, Fritz spent most of his working life as a sales coordinator with Keller Marine and RV Distributors in Port Trevorton, Pennsylvania. Now retired, Fritz fills his days writing about his many adventures, playing golf, studying the Bible, and driving part time for the limousine division of Bieber Transportation Company of Kutztown, Pennsylvania "to pay for the golf."

    I pulled my first all-nighter in third grade for a paper on Zimbabwe, which I typed on a brown and tan typewriter in our guest bedroom. I got an A. This was the beginning of a long string of all-nighters that lasted well into graduate school. I learned I could play while everyone else studied and still get the same grade or better for one night's worth of effort. What's the big deal? It's not hurting my grades, right? Well, if it was good enough for an A with little time spent, imagine how great it could've been with more time put into it. I was stifling my own potential.
