An Interview with Author Sam Polakoff

I knew I wanted to write historical fiction and I knew it would follow a heroine in indentured servitude 17th or 18th century rural colony in Maryland. I began reading, researching, and speaking with local historians, one of whom told me a story about women in England's overcrowded debtors' prisons .

An Interview with Author Yvonne Young

From the moment I wrote my first story in my high school journalism class, I have dreamed of becoming a writer. Life required me to work and my dreams were put on hold, but now that I'm retired, I find myself drifting towards creative writing again. My wish is that I write something worthy for publication before I die! I have two living sisters who are both extremely talented artists, but my talent is in writing. I don't have an established "style", I just write from the heart.
