After twenty years trembling on the brink of rock stardom and fifteen years working at record companies, Ted Myers left the music business—or perhaps it was the other way around—and took a job as a copywriter at an advertising agency. This cemented his determination to make his mark as an author. He started with his memoir because Mark Twain said "write what you know," but Ted quickly moved into the realm of fiction. He has completed one novel and a novelette, both scheduled for publication in 2018. Meanwhile, his short stories are being published in anthologies and literary magazines with increasing regularity.

Publishing credits:

His nonfiction has appeared in Working Musicians (Harper Collins), By the Time We Got to Woodstock: The Great Ro

Writers, does this resonate with you?


I’m working on my second novel. The concept is solid, the beginning started off promisingly, I know where and how it ends. But now, 28,000 words into it, I don’t know how to get from here to the end. It needs more drama, more twists, more turns, more surprises.


My first novel was short. Too short by adult literary standards. But, as a YA, it eke...

Thomas Mann
“Our receptivity to praise stands in no relationship to our vulnerability to mean disdain and spiteful abuse. No matter how stupid such abuse is, no matter how plainly impelled by private rancors, as an expression of hostility it occupies us far more deeply and lastingly than praise. Which is very foolish, since enemies are, of course, the necessary concomitant of any robust life, the very proof of its strength.”
Thomas Mann

Jean Cocteau
“Listen very carefully to the first criticisms of your work. Note just what it is about your work that the reviewers don’t like; it may be the only thing in your work that is original and worthwhile.”
Jean Cocteau
