Antique Typewriters

I thought it was quite fitting that the Oscar Ceremony last night used a backdrop of antique typewriters when they awarded the best screenplay awards.  I remember, in the fifties and sixties, when authors were looked up to as celebrities.  They were on talk shows, and people followed what they did, and what they wrote.  I don’t think that is the case any more.  Not that I’m saying the art of acting isn’t difficult.  It just seems that acting and movie making have taken on epic proportions, while authors have taken a backseat.  Oh yes, we still have popular writers, but they seem to be more in the “pop” culture category, not great literature.  And some of the most popular writers churn out multiple books a year.  It’s more of a business than an art.

About Hurricane River Publishing

I write mystery novels. The Butterfly Conspiracy and The Peacock Prophecy, feature Stepehn Moorehouse, his Uncle Phillip Kahle, and Stephen's romantic interest, Jeanette St. Jacques. The Maze At Four Chimneys features John Barrington and his family. The Black Orchid Mystery features a detective named Archie Archibald. This book takes place in Vero Beach, Florida but has ties to John Barrington from The Maze book. My latest book, Menagerie of Broken Dreams, brings back Stephen Moorhouse and his uncle Philip, as they travel to central Florida to make a movie. Things don't go as planned when they meet Doctor Merryweather and his run down roadside attraction the Menagerie.
