Steven Luna likes making things up on a daily basis. This biography, though factual, is one of those things. He's the author of the absurdly humorous Joe Vampire series for grown-ups, the heart-wrenchingly serious Songs from the Phenomenal Nothing for almost-grown-ups, and the magical realism tale Starfire and the Miracle Tree for readers of all ages. Simeon Croom and the Treasure Star, his new comedy-adventure series, is now available.

My best advice would be define your goals VERY carefully when you first embark on your writing venture. Do you want to be a WRITER? Write something...congratulations - you're a writer! Do you want to be a PUBLISHED AUTHOR? Maybe think about publishing something yourself rather than going traditional...fantastic - you're a published author! Having milestones like this all along the way will help you maintain a realistic perspective regarding your progress and can keep you enthusiastic about moving forward during the rough patches.

It's springboard from which a profile emerges, and the story suggests itself from there. If I'm ever at a loss for ideas and just can't get inspired, I'll dream up a new character and drop him or her in a dodgy situation, just to see what they'll do. Then, we're off and running, and duly inspired.(less)

To the order
of things
he was
a quirk,
a kink
in the quantum
bending
the universe back
upon itself
like cosmic origami
that duplicated
his solitude
and doubled
his loneliness
in one
overlapping
point
of inescapable
chaos.

It felt
at times
as if
there might be
two of him,
and yet
none
of him
at all.

He was
what one might call
a “double singularity”
if one
had an
eye
for string theory
and a yen

Zach Helm
“Sometimes, when we lose ourselves in fear and despair, in routine and constancy, in hopelessness and tragedy, we can thank God for Bavarian sugar cookies. And, fortunately, when there aren't any cookies, we can still find reassurance in a familiar hand on our skin, or a kind and loving gesture, or subtle encouragement, or a loving embrace, or an offer of comfort, not to mention hospital gurneys and nose plugs, an uneaten Danish, soft-spoken secrets, and Fender Stratocasters, and maybe the occasional piece of fiction. And we must remember that all these things, the nuances, the anomalies, the subtleties, which we assume only accessorize our days, are effective for a much larger and nobler cause. They are here to save our lives. I know the idea seems strange, but I also know that it just so happens to be true.”
Zach Helm, Stranger Than Fiction: The Shooting Script
