Our authors come from far and wide, coast to coast, and even overseas. They are an eclectic mix of talented people — which is why we enjoy editing and promoting their work so much. Here are a few we’ve worked with repeatedly:
DAVID ANTOCCI is a noted wordsmith, blogger and author. His work can be read regularly on the Worcester Telegram and Gazette website where he has spent many years writing about the trials and tribulations of being a real life Mr. Mom. While his first love is music, he has put down the guitar in recent years in order to pour his passion into writing… and the gentle tap of the keys on his laptop are much less disruptive late at night when the children are sleeping. The ESCAPE books are his first published foray into fiction. He lives in New England with his beautiful wife and children. Find out more at antocci.com.
JERRY BELLER is an author and screenwriter of historical and contemporary novels. An avid reader as a teenager, John Steinbeck, David McCullough, and Ken Follett inspired him to become a writer. After college, Jerry moved to DC to work on Capitol Hill. While he loved the city’s art, museums, monuments, and memorials, he hated the politics. In his late twenties, Jerry moved to Jamaica to write his first book. While there, he met, fell in love, and married a native, Nicola. Also falling in love with Jamaica, it remains his home away from home. He and Nicola spent the next decade traveling back and forth between the States and Jamaica, and he wrote dozens of screenplays. He is the author of several series and upcoming books, including the Kingston, Jamaica, and American Myth Series.

DAVID BURNS is a licensed clinical social worker who makes the time to write both nonfiction books to potentially help those in need and whirlwind fiction that often relies upon sound psychological theory in its plot twists. His self-help books include Therapeutic Lessons and Moving Forward, while his optimistic yet action-packed titles include Rim Shots, Blind Pursuit, and Memorial Day Mayhem.
NELSON DONLEY is a retired special education teacher who began his literary sojourn with the highly regarded existential tome, Life Ain’t Kind. Before long, he relied on his expertise with children and put in print the stories he often told his students. The result was the Farmer Tice series, well-received by the always tough Kirkus Reviews. The Farmer Tice books are Green Acres meets MAD Magazine, filled with full-color illustrations and a collection of funny short stories about the unluckiest dirt farmer in the world.
