Winner of Readers' Favorite Silver Award for Historical Fiction/Western, Kwen knew he wanted to be a writer when he was fourteen years old. He felt the urge when he finished Earnest Hemingway’s masterpiece For Whom The Bell Tolls. The story touched him in a way no other book ever had. It transported a kid born and raised on a farm and ranch in Idaho to the mountains of Spain. It took him back in time forty years to witness the Spanish Civil War. Kwen knew he wanted to share that wonder with other people.

John Lennon said, “Life is what happens while you make other plans.” While Kwen lived a full and varied life, his dream of writing remained in the back of his mind.

Finally, in 2012, he wrote a novella named Dear Emma.

There…moreIf you had asked me that question when I was eighteen, I would have answered Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. (The movie had just come out). There are several great couples, but my favorite is Lt and Anne Wentworth from Jane Austin's "Persuasion."

The couple faces challenges not unlike what many of us face. The love they feel for each other and the obligation to follow counsel from family members. Throw in a little class bigotry and the story is repeated several times over. How many young ladies hear, from parents or well-meaning friends that the man they are in love with just isn't good enough for them. As the father of three daughters, I gave such advice freely and often. All three ignored me, were not persuaded otherwise, and to date, have great husbands.

Thank you for your question. Who is yours?(less)

Cast a Long Shadow

Most stories are started with a premise. A premise like what if a young woman walks through the dark woods? What if she meets a wolf? What if she is wearing a red cloak? Do you know that story? Most of us do. Cast a Long Shadow also began with a premise. What if a […]
