Sharing the things you want the world to know around the literary industry.

How will our future turn out?

It's with a great deal of fanfare (hear the drumroll) and pleasure that I announce the release of my newest novel, "Annie's World: Jake's Legacy" through All Things That Matter Press. I invite all Author's Info friends and visitors check it out.Two centuries have elapsed since global economies collapsed with little hope of resurrection.  Jake Henderson wanders the former state of Texas foraging for food and witnesses the murder of a young woman. A ten-year-old girl traveling with the woman is traumatized and left speechless, orphaned by the violent act. From that day, she begins changing Jake’s life in ways he could never have imagined. Annabelle, as he chooses to call her, descends from failed genetically manufactured prototypes in the early part of the twenty-first century. This delicate appearing child is anything but, destined to become the champion of all that’s good and right in a world out of control. http://www.amazon.com/Annies-World-Daniel-Lance-Wright/dp/0985006625/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1331996402&sr=1-1

One Schools Reaction to the Trayvor Martin Killing

My friend and fellow Author Info contributor Angelo McCutchen shared a video made at his son's school. All I can hope is it will open our eyes and stop people living in fear due to their own ignorance.

An acknowledgement to Hildegaarde Flanner

The White Bridge, the title of my newly published novel by All Things That Matter Press, is not unique in the annals of American literature, though it may well have been. Just yesterday, a very small, yellowish-bound, but otherwise perfectly preserved copy of a one act play arrived indelicately by post from San Francisco. It cost me seven dollars, and gave me, in my hands, the connecting link with my own history. The White Bridge-A One Act Play, written in 1938 by Hildegaarde Flanner. Turns out, Hildegaard was quite a conservationist, planter, essayist and poet and did some prolific work. Also, the copy sent me has to be rare because it was signed by her as a greeting to a reader. The date also was perhaps prophetic: December 7, 1938.So, it was with an eerie feeling that I began reading Hildegaarde's vision of what I thought was solely mine. Now, those...

He is still alive and living near Disneyland

In a convoluted sense, I truly understand the “Stand Your Ground” law in Florida. Poor Trayvon Martin’s fiancé will just have to find another American dream—of love, family, and her pursuit of happiness. For the rest of us, we will go on until the next atrocity, the next isolated event. But for her, and Trayvon’s family, trust me, this is a "shattered glass," a holocaust. I don’t want to self-aggrandize here, but I have been studying history keenly lately. Just last night I taught my Advanced Topics class: The Psychology of Racism about how the poison of race hatred is hidden nowadays. Aversive racism is the inner biases that hide behind the outer shell of right political thinking. It is ironic that I teach this course, and I have a confession: “As a result of mental disturbance from my experiences during the atomic wars... I was a willing subject of Goldstein's...

The White Bridge ... of American racism and Nazis

On Fire With Ginger Lee ... an introduction “ ... there is a connection to a bridge that they draw like Jesus on a mural, in the dashboards of the American brain. It’s being built, in reality, an irresistible idea, from our country to theirs, to Nazi Germany. Verschauer’s assistant is a doctor named Josef Mengele. He has zeal to study twins. What are Nazis doing here? It’s about racism and where it is all headed; a bad seed, a party I don’t want to be at, at all, but it may be too late to do anything about the blood that is about to be spilled.”How she envied the passion, but not the plan that had the will to believe in a cause without a care. They lynched, burned, hanged, how else could they kill? Hate, not love, was the fuel to run the engine. She had a pen and...
