Brevard Authors aspire to achieve the highest level of literary creativity and craftsmanship in writing poetry, prose, drama, comedy, fiction and non-fiction for the benefit of their fellow man. They serve as a force of encouraging and inspiring writers to promote writing as an art of skilled word weavers in the pursuit of recognition.
Brevard Authors Society was founded in the Spring of 2015 by a few volunteers as an online society of independent authors of Brevard County, Florida. It is purely a not for profit organization and it does not require any financial support. All services, presentations and seminars are provided free of charge by the volunteer writers, editors and graphic designers, whose skills are not promoted as professional and cannot be held responsible for the end results. Membership is also free and on informal basis, where each member can request to be listed in the Brevard Authors Registry mailing list and posted on the website: www.brevardauthors.weebly.com. A member can request at any time to be removed from the registry and from the website.
Brevard Authors Society is managed by the volunteer directors whose role is to maintain the fluidity of the online society of independent authors, to coordinate the writers forums, support fellow authors with reference information about editing, formatting and publishing, and to encourage new writers to create and publish their work.
Author Anna Flowers visits Forum Five, by Jim Nelson
Last Thursday, February 11th, our writing group, The Forum Five, had the privilege of being visited by a guest speaker, true crime writer, Anna Flowers. Anna is the bestselling author of Blind Fury, the story of serial killer Gerald Stano, and Bound to Die, the case of Bobby Joe Long, a Tampa Bay murderer. These books were selected as Doubleday True Crime and Mystery Guild Club selections. She has also authored Murder at Wayside Antiques, Vengeance at Meeting Street, and Wanton woman. Mrs. Flowers has been a Director of Mystery writers of America, Florida Chapter, and is a member of Sisters in Crime, National League of American Penwomen, and the Space Coast Writers Guild. During a two hour informal meeting, Anna answered questions from our members. She explained her extensive research preparation, how her tenacity has helped her get information from hesitant witnesses, how she became interested in true crime writing, etc. Her wit, insight, and behind the scenes anecdotes captured our attention and provided an experience that we won’t soon forget.
