I began writing the blog "Another Angry Voice" in 2010 in order to express my opinions about current political, social and economic issues. I chose the name Another Angry Voice on the spur of the moment because I thought it sounded good at the time and I had to call it something. I don't believe it is a particularly acurate descriptor, given that I strive to to base my arguments on facts and analysis, and to include reliable sources, rather than simply writing emotionally fueled rants.
I particularly enjoy demolishing pathetic arguments. My book "Silver Spooned- Feeble Right-Wing Fallacies" is definitely worth checking out if you need some instant ammunition to comprehensively defeat an entrenched right-wing r ... read more

A retired single handed sailor with a love of dogs, rugby, golf and family not necessarily in that order. I get more curious as I get older and read books voraciously. I try and make my creations believable with an eye to "description"
particularly of those places I've visited personally which is most of the "locales" in my books.
I write because I love to write not as a means to pay the bills, although it would be nice as every "author" will tell you. For most, the marketing is far more difficult than the writing. The Irish Whiskey "Writer's Tears" is surely aimed at the marketing, effort not the tale itself.

During your school years, you might have had an encounter with 'that guy'.
You know; the one sitting far towards the back of class, usually remaining silent and lost in his own world. Whether his approach was one of words or images, you could usually be sure it involved a pencil and a piece of paper.
Maybe that was you.
It certainly was me.
As I have later come to realize through my work as a clinical psychologist, the good story is important.
Whether it is set in a distant futuristic universe or involves shiny swords, we
need stories to make coherence in our lives. Through stories, we are taught how there is more to our existence than the trivialities of everyday life.

Thomas William Shaw is an author and actor from Helena, AL. He currently lives outside of Birmingham, AL with his fiancé, Melissa, and their puppy child dachshund, Delilah.
A passion for writing was sparked in me as young as eleven-years-old. That was when I wrote my first short story about my elementary school staff turning into aliens. It was terrifying and the class loved it, excluding my teacher who sent me to the principle's office but recommended me for the Young Author's Conference in the same breath. Since then, I've had short stories published in local community college literary journals and worked in a bookstore surrounded by novels that told me I had to go full length.

Sam Willis writes stories like ninjas skulk around in the dark: constantly. Most of them disappear into that place where short term memories go instead of becoming long term ones, but occasionally he manages to pin one down before it escapes. When he's not pursuing an endless procession of characters and scenes through the catacombs of his brain, he’s chasing the diminutive demons that are his son and daughter through the recesses of their house in Schenectady, NY. When these two worlds collide, one question arises: “Daddy, why do you make up this crazy stuff?” The first round of Sam’s “crazy stuff,” his short story “Break,” is available in eBook form at various vendors across the web.

Heart stopping puppy chases, childhood melodrama and the aborted hangings of innocent toys are all in a day’s work for Nikki Duncan. This athletic equestrian turned reluctant homemaker turned daring author, is drawn to the siren song of a fresh storyline.
Nikki plots murder and mayhem over breakfast, scandalous exposes at lunch and the sensual turn of phrase after dinner. Nevertheless, it is the pleasurable excitement and anticipation of unraveling her character’s motivation that drives her to write long past the witching hour.
The only anxiety and apprehension haunting this author comes from pondering the mysterious outcome of her latest twist.

I kept writing as a hobby during my career in Financial Services, and now thanks to the self-publishing boom I am making my work available!
I have a wide range of favorite musicians, particularly those who are heavily influenced by the old-school rock era. My favorite of all time is Bruce Springsteen.
