I am a retired PhD in literature and writing who taught for sixteen years at a private college in Atlanta, at a university and community college back in my home state of Illinois, and for seven years in the People's Republic of China. Before finishing my degrees and becoming a professor, I worked in film advertising for two theatre companies in Illinois and sold advertising for a community newspaper in Missouri.
Since returning to the USA in 2012, I have been devoting my time to writing. I do have one print book published as a scholarly evaluation of books made into films, focusing on British author John Fowles. My hope now is to continue my struggles to publish fiction novels that I have been working on for years.
Two novels based on my teaching experiences in China are FORBIDDEN VOICES and FOREIGNERS AND EMPERORS, which are semi-fictional exposes.. The recently completed and available is the third novel in The Alex Barteau Asian Series titled SMS; THE SCAMMERS. This e-book novel deals with characters from the Philippines as well as from China.
My science-fiction novels include a time-travel mystery called OF TIME AND THE DREAMER, a time-travel adventure titled FROM HERE TO ATLANTIS, and a work about an extraterrestrial occupation in a small town called CIRCLES AND REALM. First completed and available is a trilogy of paranormal (horror) novels called the DARK JOURNEYS TRILOGY, followed by a fourth novel in the DARK JOURNEYS series called DARK TWILIGHT. The fifth novel is tentatively titled CURSE OF THE LAMIAI. Featuring many of the same characters in OF TIME AND THE DREAMER is the follow-up time-travel novel titled ISLANDS IN TIME. Recently completed and posted is the semi-fictional experience based on characters from the Philippines titled SMS: THE SCAMMERS.
I really appreciate the sweat and mental trials that authors must go through, and I hope to continue my support for my colleagues through group sites through Facebook. Thank you all for support by continuing to read literature -- in whatever format. Right now, the USA is in fifth place among the countries in the world with the most educated people. I hope we can change that by showing that we are not only good at playing computer games.
