THE 3 PILLARS – SERIES 2
Pillar 2 – Writing
Guest Speaker – S. M. Stevens
After many years as a business writer, S.M. Stevens found the time to pen her first novel when a pelvis broken in 3 places absolved her from housework and chauffering the kids around for several months. The result was her middle-grade novel Shannon’s Odyssey, written for her animal-loving daughter Natalie.
A year later, she found herself in treatment for cancer and, while not working at her paid marketing job, wrote the first of the Bit Players series. Bit Players was written for Stevens’s daughter Gabrielle, to fill the void of fiction for musical theatre-loving teens. The YA series now has three books, and appeals to all teens not just drama-loving ones. Read more at http://www.BitPlayers.me.
Her newest novel (thankfully not prompted by another health crisis!) is Horseshoes and Hand Grenades, a novel for all ages, which follows Shelby and Astrid through the early years of their careers at a Boston PR firm. Shelby grapples with recovered memories of childhood incest, and Astrid struggles with workplace harassment that morphs from flirting to attempted rape.
