I'm looking forward to whatever turns up on The Literary Net. I've published both nonfiction and fiction books. The nonfiction books were all in United States history and had varied subjects: late nineteenth-century political reformers (a.k.a. Mugwumps), four generations of a family swept along in westward migration, a famous true-crime story (the Boorn-Colvin mystery) in early 19th-century Vermont, and Greenwich Village as it became America's Bohemia. My three novels, the Buenaventura Series Trilogy, are all set in 18th-century Santa Fe, New Mexico. Kirkus Reviews said their account of the adventures of a Spanish brujo named Carlos Buenaventura fit into an unusual genre: mystical-historical.

I am the former Innkeeper of an award-winning Bed & Breakfast on Oregon's gorgeous coast...so what am I doing here? Well, I got hit by a truck. While healing from disabling injuries that would require twelve spine surgeries (and counting...), I decided to write a story about a haunting photograph I had found in the attic during restoration of the Inn. After I finished writing the story, I put it on a shelf, where (I believed) books written by authors with zero experience and/or education in creative writing should go.
Fifteen years passed, and I was shamed by a popular television host into dusting off the manuscript, giving it a cursory edit, and submitting it to book publishers. I looked up who the top ten publishers were, at the time, and noted one of them was a Christian company (not sure how really "Christian" they are, sadly). I sent my manuscript to that one. Three days later, the publisher sent a royalty contract.
I have since written and traditionally-published two more books, and I am pleased to say all three are award-winning novels in western historical fiction adventure. My current WIP is the sequel to "Grog Wars", a Literary Classics silver medal winner, and it is almost finished. Whoo-hoo!

Hello! I'm Stephen J. Smith, an award-winning screenwriter and first-time novelist. I studied Creative Writing at the University of Wisconsin and worked as editorial assistant for Tor/Forge Books while there. As soon as I graduated, I headed out to Los Angeles and studied Screenwriting at UCLA. I'm currently repped for screenwriting with a number of feature and TV projects in the works, and when I can make the time, I'm working on my second novel. This past May, I self-published my first novel, a religious fantasy epic titled "The Sabrael Confession," available on Amazon at http://amzn.com/1508974527. If you like Anne Rice's vampires, Frank Peretti's angels, or action-packed, sprawling battles across various eras of history, it's for you, trust me. Looking forward to making some connections and getting support in furthering my fiction writing. I'm mainly a genre reader but do enjoy a good historical fiction or mainstream fiction book as well. You can find me on Twitter at @TheWriteSJSmith, FB at www.facebook.com/stephenjsmithauthor, and my website www.stephen-j-smith.com.
