Sally Jane Driscoll
Hi! Thanks for coming to my author page. I'm a writer, but I didn't want to learn to read. School bored me from the start and the rules stifled me. Then, starting at seven years old, I read Edgar Allan Poe. How different from my schoolbooks! Poe freed me. He awakened my love of language with his words of fire.
Over time, my short stories, poetry and articles appeared in Asimov's Science Fiction Magazine, Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine, Interzone, Daily Science Fiction, The Baltimore Sun, The Washington Times, The Lyric, Woman's Day and Seventeen, among others. A play was produced in the Baltimore Playwrights' Festival. I've written ad copy, taught writing at the graduate level, co-founded and run a literary magazine, worked as a reader/fiction editor for a literary agent and copy edited art instruction books and a medical journal. Some of my unpublished novels have finaled in Romance Writers of America contests.
A refugee from the East and West Coasts, I live in the Texas Hill Country with my husband, Raphael.

- A Simple Twist of Fate
on Feb. 21, 2012
Through all the ups and downs of her life, and there seem to have been many, Prudence MacLeod has somehow developed a belief in the inherent goodness of human beings. People make bad mistakes, yes, but they can also choose to change and grow until they become their better selves, sometimes in a way they couldn't have imagined. I can't think of any other writer who shows this with such benevolence. The fact that some of her stories are about what might be considered controversial relationships makes this benevolence more special and even endearing.
