Thank you for visiting!

My full 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. As you can see, due to the length of my name it was easier to go by E.A.

Born in Carson City, Nevada, USA, I grew up in a historic town, Virginia City, made famous by its 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 the Wild West boomtown (now living ghost town) of Virginia City where Mark Twain began his career as a journalist and temporary writing block afflicted editor was "interest

Seriously though, as a writer you become a storyteller and a sharer of ideas, what can be more awesome than that? The best thing about being a writer is the creativity, and you can be creative on so many levels as a writer. Writing fiction means that in most cases you construct characters that never existed before, get to experiment with them, see what happens, and oh, so much can happen. You get to share your ideas with the world, not to mention learn new things in return. Creativity needs to be fuelled, (and requires more than coffee and chocolate!) Writing both fiction and non-fiction equals hours of research and is an engrossing part of the work, but if you’re an information treasure-seeker like me, you’ll relish the hunt for historical documents, trivia, facts and fact checking, academic journals, news stories, not to mention searching out new avenues to get you inspired by reading as much as you can. Since the arrival of the internet, writers have never had it so good in the way of research. Non-fiction in particular gives me a chance to explore in depth the topics I find interesting. Then, when the research is nailed down to the best of my ability, I love playing with words, hammering each sentence into place and polishing them up, getting everything to read and sound ‘just right’ depending on the work currently in progress. Hopefully, what I write about will also interest and intrigue my readers, be it fiction or non-fiction. I know, not everyone will like what I write, but writing is not about trying to please everybody. It is an art as well as a skill, and each book or article is unique to each writer as a painting is to each artist. (less)

“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
