Hey Stephen! You have a lot of people pulling at you, so I’ll simply say that my novel "War Star Rising!" is along the lines of courageous young people who make a positive difference in their world. It was inspired by my daughter who was one courageous young lady in the face of a terminal illness... more

Your picture says it all.
Like many others, I am new to the writing scene. I would love to send you a copy of my book for middle grade children. It's sad, beautiful, uplifting, rather lyrically composed, and somewhat literary as well. If any of that sounds appealing, I would love to hear f... more

Anyone ever tell you that you bear a resemblance to Willy Wonka? LOL!

The picture I have posted is the winning entry for the contest. She will be illistrating the entire story at publication. She is very talented, and at the age of 14 has a wonderful future ahead. Her parents are very excited, and supportive. The folowing is a copy of my web site, iwishafish.com Hope ... more

Hey Stephen. Can't get enough of your profile pic. That's exactly how I been feeling lately too. "Willy Wonka seeks Oompa-Loompas, and maybe a Charlie." Sounds like a creepy personal ad, but that's how I feel about my company Romeo+Juliet Press. So much growth these past 2 weeks I've been on leave, ... more

The books you represent sound intriguing. Best wishes for a successful fall season!
Comment by Nicole Hubbard on 8/25/2008 at 12:09 PM:
Hey Stephen.
Nice bio picture.

I'm a writer/illustrator in college with one novel complete and many others underway (I just can't help it, writing is something I must do or go nuts). I'm trying to break into the writing business. Can you help?
Comment by Hilary Hyland on 8/14/2008 at 10:42 AM:
Good to be on your friends list. Thanks!
How many chihuahuas does it take to make one Newfoundland dog? Hint: see my website (blog) or ask Jean Feiwel.

Hi Stephen,
Thanks for accepting my invite! I'm new to Jacketflap. Actually, I'm new to YA fiction and I'm having a great time with it. It's that fifteen-year-old girl inside me that just has to have her say! Now, hard at work on second book in the Unbidden Magic series.

Hello, Stephen! Thanks very much for the add.
Comment by Kim Schuelke on 6/3/2008 at 11:02 AM:
Hi, Stephen,
You look a guy with a sense of humor. My husband and I have a stuffed bear named Brownie. He begs us to take him on roadtrips. But he hates it when we call him a "BeanButt". Good to have you on JacketFlap!

Love the hat, the ruffle, and I'm expecting to find a golden ticket for a friendship here on JF. What-do-ya-say?

hanks for accepting the invite Stephen.
Comment by Miranda Koerner on 4/15/2008 at 2:16 PM:
Roald Dahl and Louis Sachar have been two of my favorites since childhood. You can't go wrong with snozzcumbers and strange teachers who turn children into apples!

Hi Stephen - I am a huge Willy Wonka fan. Definitely prefer Wilder to Depp in that role. Nice puppet.

Maybe I'll go with thecandy instead?
