Tell Me a Story

2022, Indies United Publishing House

I’m delighted to focus this month’s Author Spotlight on a wonderful middle grade fantasy author, Laura DiNovis Berry.

Laura’s latest publication, The Nasties of Nastgant Swamp, was released by Indies United Publishing last October and is the 2nd book in her Story of Antyfas series. I love middle grade fantasy books so I wanted to take this opportunity to share this wonderful author, her story and her wisdom with you.

What’s it about?

It’s not every day that a gnome invites you to dinner. When Valentino is invited to a special gnome party deep in the Nastgant Swamp, he can’t wait to go. Unfortunately, he isn’t just the guest of honor — he’s supposed to be the main course! Join Valentino on his fantastic adventure filled with trolls, gnomes, and danger.

Author Spotlight: ANA MANWARING

Tell Me a Story

I’m excited to showcase a new book by seasoned author and poet, Ana Manwaring in this month’s Author Spotlight! Ana is a creative writing teacher and book editor from northern California. Her poetry, personal narratives, book reviews and short stories have appeared in diverse publications including the California Quarterly, KRCB Radio, Morning Haiku, and Mystery Readers Journal. She has also written a lifestyle column for a local paper, prepared taxes, taught ESL, worked for a PI, consulted brujos and outrun gun totin’ maniacs on lonely Mexican highways—the inspiration for The JadeAnne Stone Mexico Adventures. After earning her M.A., Ana finally answered her mother’s question, “What are you planning to do with that expensive education?” Be a writer!

Let’s talk about Set Up, Manwaring’s latest title. Who is Jade-Anne Stone and what is she doing in Mexico?

A case to locate an American missing from the resorts of Ixtapa…
