About this author

Thank you for visiting. Since trying to be the mysterious, anonymous author is boring, it's time to step out into the Cyber World and say "Hello".

My name is Elizabeth Ann Bucchianeri, ("BOOK-ia-nair-ee" in case you were wondering how to pronounce that! Not too bad for someone who loves to read and write...) I was born in Carson City, Nevada (USA) and grew up in a historic town, Virginia City, made famous by it's gold and silver mines that built San Francisco, and was immortalized by Mark Twain in his book "Roughing It", and by the "Bonanza" TV series for those of you who remember that long-running Western. To say growing up in Virginia City was interesting is probably the understatement of the decade, but that's a story for another time.

“You know how creative people are, we have to try everything until we find our niche,” so says Katherine in Brushstrokes of a Gadfly.

It appears she may be correct, writers like yours truly also have the need to try everything else in the creative sphere, including making a film. For years kids have been able to make short videos and post them online easy peasy, so after an age of eyeing that i...

“So it’s true, when all is said and done, grief is the price we pay for love.”
E.A. Bucchianeri, Brushstrokes of a Gadfly

“Falling in love is very real, but I used to shake my head when people talked about soul mates, poor deluded individuals grasping at some supernatural ideal not intended for mortals but sounded pretty in a poetry book. Then, we met, and everything changed, the cynic has become the converted, the sceptic, an ardent zealot.”
E.A. Bucchianeri, Brushstrokes of a Gadfly

“An acquaintance merely enjoys your company, a fair-weather companion flatters when all is well, a true friend has your best interests at heart and the pluck to tell you what you need to hear.”
E.A. Bucchianeri, Brushstrokes of a Gadfly
