I teamed up with the amazing group of writers at MagicalWords.net as a regular blogger (from June 2010 to Dec. 2011) and as editor of the book based on/collecting many of the essays we wrote. MagicalWords.net is a joint blog featuring David B. Coe, Faith Hunter,
Misty Massey, A.J. Hartley, and a host of special guests, all offering insights into the craft and business of writing fiction. It was a thrill to work
with them, and I encourage you to visit them still, as new content is added
each Monday through Friday. The book, a how-to writing guide titled How To Write Magical Words: A Writer's Companion, was released by Bella Rosa Books in January of 2011. Click here to read one of the essays in the book for free.

In the On Writing section of this website is an article called "Metaphors, Similes, and Analogies, Oh My...", which is reprinted in the MW How-To book. Below that is a list of "Basic Definitions Every Writer Should Know," expanded from the version that appears in the book.
And then of course there's my novel, Dreaming Creek...
a mystery with a Twilight Zone twist...
Bio: Edmund R. Schubert loves stories. Always has; always will. When he was in the second grade, his teacher would bribe him with trips to the library to get him to do his math and science. Little has changed since then... (For the full bio (as well as a self-inflicted headshot), click "Bio & Interviews" on the list on the left) Or here: www.edmundrschubert.com/biointerviews.htm
