Author Steven Payette Stops by All the Blog’s a Page October 31, 2008

For the month of OCTOBER, All the Blog’s a Page (AtBaP) is featuring MALE WRITERS!  We wrap up the month with author Steven Payette, who has just released the first book in his Trevor Samuels mysteries, THE BACK OF MY MIND.

About BookTrevor Samuels, an investigator with fifteen years experience, is commissioned to investigate three arson losses. After numerous leads fail to generate any suspects, he suddenly gets a break in the form of fifteen-year-old Goth boy named Jesse. Jesse is heavily involved in the contraband cigarette market and he exposes Trevor to this seedy underworld. While trying to determine if the arson’s are related to the contraband cigarette market, Trevor uncovers greed, murder and corruption among the people he respects most. Join Trevor as he investigates the most difficult case of his career, a case that will either make his career or haunt him for the remainder of his life.

For the month of October, AtBaP authors are talking about BEING MALE; here’s the question that was posed:  Reflect on the stories you have written – the stories waiting to be written.  What themes, topics do you find your writerly mind pushing you to write?  How do these themes, topics portray themselves through you as a male writer?

Author Torrance Stephens, Ph.D., talks about being a male writer October 10, 2008

For the month of OCTOBER, All the Blog’s a Page (AtBaP) is featuring MALE WRITERS!

We kick off the month with Torrance Stephens, Ph.D., a man of many words and much intellect and thought.  His ability to “keep it real” is something I admire and something that keeps me checking him out.

For the month of October, AtBaP authors are talking about BEING MALE; here’s the question that was posed:  Reflect on the stories you have written – the stories waiting to be written.  What themes, topics do you find your writerly mind pushing you to write?  How do these themes, topics portray themselves through you as a male writer?

Torrance begins his response:  Well I normally write about what I live and experience.  I have been told I write intellectual fiction. I have been compared to Hemingway, Iceberg Slim and Richard Wright, but my idols are Pablo Neruda, Albert Camus and Voltaire among a few others.  It is easy for me; since I write erotica, sci-fi, horror, and psychological and philosophical realism, with my understanding of the sciences, history and the world; they just roll off my brain.

What ELSE does Torrance have to say about “writing as male”?  Head over to ALL THE BLOG’S A PAGE today to read the rest of his response and to learn more about Dirt Behind My Ears and Butter Brown!
