My daughter fell ill when she was eight, and for nearly two years she was unable to attend school. I spent a great deal of that time entertaining her with stories about an intrepid young girl named Elissa, who could talk with animals. Many years later she asked me to write those stories down. (I did, because I do everything my daughter says.) Once I had written them down, she told me to get them published.

A few years later, Random House published those stories as a trilogy, Elissa's Quest, Elissa's Odyssey and World's End. I discovered I liked writing, so I have kept at it ever since.

16 Literary Magazines Accepting Hybrid and Experimental Work - Paying Markets

Picture Hybrid writing encompases any literature that breaks down barriers. It can hop from one genre to another and fuse disparate forms, such as prose and poetry. Hybrids can blend fiction and nonfiction, experiment with novel approaches to plot and dialogue, employ lists, letters, or art to tell a story. If it defies categorization, it's a hybrid.

Hybrid writing has been around for a long time. William Read more of this blog post »

Description: The CDC estimates that more than a million Americans currently suffer from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS), an illness that has defied researchers to discover a cause - or cure. This one-of-a-kind reference – now completely revised and updated –includes over 100 proven treatments, from antivirals to vitamins, as well as locations of CFS specialists and clinics, Internet ordering information, and national, local, and international CFS/ME organizations. New and expanded sections include doctors' protocols as well as the latest research on the causes and mechanisms of the illness, all written in concise, easy-to-understand language. Every facet of the illness is thoroughly examined, from diagnosis to symptoms, from traditional to alternative therapies to essential coping strategies. Often referred to as the "CFS Bible," Chronic Fatigue Syndrome: A Treatment Guide remains the most comprehensive resource for recovering from this baffling illness.
