William R. Potter

Publisher info

You could say I was bitten by the writing bug at an early age. Shortly after watching the first remake of King Kong, around the age of ten or eleven, I scribbled a few lines about a mutant crab and called it a book.

Throughout my teens my mind was in a state of unrest and I used poetry to journal the ups and downs of those difficult times. Later, my work was published in a poetry anthology.

I returned to my love of storytelling in my twenties, writing numerous short stories. "Lighting the Dark Side-Six Modern Tales" represents my work from the past several years and is my first published book. The collection received the Editor's Choice Award for short stories from AllBooks Review International in 2009.

"DEAD of KNIGHT A Jack Staal Mystery" is my first full novel.

  • The Billionaire's Desideratum on Aug. 05, 2014

    What surprised me when I read this book isn’t so much the depths of depravity I saw in it, but more the fact that I knew that among the closeted halls of academia, this kind of pageantry plays out. This book peels back the layers of propriety we throw over those in power and what power can do to a person. Great story.
