Something About the Author

Hi everyone,

I’ve received a new update to the information published about me in SOMETHING ABOUT THE AUTHOR. A complete redo of older articles came out last year in Volume 318 so there wasn’t a lot for the research writer to do but essentially add what has happened recently. The piece runs a dozen pages and includes all of my books, including 11 I wrote using the pen name Kennon Graham, several pages of reviews, and another page and a half of biographical and critical sources. I’m asked to respond to several questions: —What first got you interested in writing?
—Who or what particularly influences your work?
—Describe your writing process.
—What is the most surprising thing you have learned as a writer?
—Which of your books is your favorite and why?
—What kind of effect do you hope your books will have?
This article will come out in Volume 348. I’m not sure what year that will be. I’ll let you know when it comes out one of these days.

    • I was publishing a lot of titles with Western Publishing so they suggested I might choose a second name. Kennon was Sandy’s maiden name and Graham was the last name of the Drury English professor who saw my first story and urged me to consider becoming a writer.

  1. All great questions i’d love to know the answers to! When it comes out how do we find this? Do libraries have access to it? Is in print or online directory? I live in a village far away from major universities.

    • Not sure when it will come out, Yvona. For the 2018 volume they started corresponding with me the year before so maybe this new one will come out next year. It will be in print and available online but these things are expensive. I don’t know if copies can be obtained through interlibrary loan but you might ask.

  2. Pretty darn cool! And I love how you came up with your pen name! I never realized you have an “alias.” And, all dressed up in your suit and looking very dapper…could “James Bond” be another alias??? LOL

    • Thank you, Su. I never saw Dr. Graham again after my graduation. He retired to California and died not many years later without ever knowing I had chosen his name to express my appreciation for what he had done for me.
