Anne Rivers Siddons, born 1936, graduate of Auburn University, started her career off as – what people may call, a free minded writer. She knew she was meant to be a writer when she was fired for her powerful articles in an Alabama Newspaper in which gained national attention. It was her articles like these that got her an offer from an editor; eager and interested to have her write a novel. Today Anne writes Domestic Fiction, women and relationship stories, romantic stories, and psycholgical fiction. She states that she doesn’t want to romanticize anything, she wants to write about the South as it really is.
The House Next Door
Best known for his Science Fiction Novels, Card has written many other forms and genres that appeal to audiences from teens to adults (kind of the Jack of all trades in the writers world). Card is known for his engrossing and moral stories and provocative view of a world in which individuals can make a difference. His stories feature familiar themes–family, duty, and sacrifice–and the battle between good and evil is frequently explored.
In 1978 he won the John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer from the World Science Fiction Convention. He has wrote screenplays for animated children’s videos, written poetry, directed and ventured into writing illustrated novels in the comic series Ultimate Iron Man for Marvel.
