12:44 PM author interview, harem slave, human trafficking, independent author, Kindle, nancy hartwell, self publishing No comments
I decided to start a new feature here on the blog, where I feature interviews with other independent authors. I am curious about other authors' experiences with self publishing, and feel like they could have a lot to teach. Here is our first author. I believe she has a fascinating story, both personal and literary.
My name is Nancy Hartwell. I grew up in Tampa, Florida, studied international relations at American U in Washington D.C., married a distinguished attorney from Cameroon and lived there for 14 years. I am a life-long writer; I published my first poem in a national magazine at age 8. I was a technical writer for a special division of The Washington Post on Capitol Hill for 7 years, and lead proposal writer for an international consulting company for 14 more. I have traveled to 44 countries and can get into trouble in more than 20 languages. I had a radio play produced by BBC and another, in French, on ORTF

People hate Memphis. People that live here hate it; people that visit here hate it. People trash talk Memphis. People vow to move away from Memphis. Aside from a very few devotees, this city just can’t catch a break. That’s not to say there aren't good reasons for the animosity.

At least since Milton's Paradise Lost, readers have been fascinated by the literary figure of Satan. Perhaps it's because we identify with his flaws, or because we just find villains more interesting than the good guys, but readers can't get enough of this fallen angel. Like vampires or zombies, every few years, someone comes along and puts a new spin on his backstory and abilities. In Up Jumps The Devil, Michael Poore takes his turn.
