Award winning author of the Calculated series, Nova McBee, and two local authors, N.T. McQueen and Tessa Van Wade, will discuss what goes on in an author’s life, their secrets to storytelling, and what inspired Nova’s young adult series that caught the attention of movie producers.
Nova McBee is the author of the Calculated series, a young adult fiction series now currently in development to become a major motion franchise, with One Door Studios and Emmy Award winning screenwriter, Ann Peacock, best known for The Chronicles of Narnia, to adapt the novel for screen. A Seattle native, Nova has lived nearly half her life in the Middle East, Europe, and Asia. When she is not writing, she thrives on complex plots, deep conversation, ends of the earth adventures, and spending time with her family and friends.
This program is suitable for teens and adults. Print and digital copies of Nova’s Calculated series are available for checkout with HSPLS. Mahalo nui to the Friends of the Libraries, Kona (F.O.L.K.) for sponsoring this program!
My short story "Badon-napoti" is getting a new life over at Spillwords Press. The story of Andrew is a powerful one and looks back to the Bloody Island Massacre of up to 200 Pomo men, women and children and the echoes of that tragedy over the years. Originally published in 2016 by The Danforth Review.
This September, I will be staffing at the School of Writing at the University of the Nations- Kona campus. The 3 month school helps aspiring writers hone their craft and explore different types of writing such as fiction, nonfiction, journalism, marketing and others.
