G. T. Anders
G. T. Anders started his writing adventures when he first learned his letters. Homeschooled from an early age, he rebelled in the area of penmanship and developed handwriting that many people still find difficult to read. But that was only the first way in which he would make the act of writing his own.
Around age 12, he read The Lord of the Rings, C. S. Lewis’s Space Trilogy, and Madaleine L’Engle’s A Wrinkle In Time. These must have been quite formative, as much of his subsequent work aims the same epic heights.
In his twenties, as he attended Kent State University (studying music composition), Anders' muse kept speaking, and he kept filling 3-ring binders. The Tower of Babel emerged from his junior and senior year at Kent. The novel was published last summer, to four- and five-star reviews.
This may be only the beginning. Anders has notebooks full of the workings of his myth-saga, the Vaulan Cycle (of which The Tower of Babel is Book II, and his upcoming novel Book I). He also has a non-fiction project in the works, tentatively titled We’re All Singing Now: Making Art in the 2010s. This book will examine the stories of individual artists in music, literature, visual art, and other media, connecting these stories to a larger understanding of how changes in technology and culture have changed the kind and quality of art that we get to experience. While he has chosen to self-publish his fiction, he will seek traditional publication for We’re All Singing Now, as he believes that route better suits the subject matter.
