Candace Robb's short Biography: It was after leaving graduate school that I focused on creative writing. I wrote short stories, mostly science fiction-probably because I'd just discovered the science fiction section in the library and was devouring the books. But one story was inspired by my graduate work in medieval studies. The rejection letters regarding that story were much chattier and far more encouraging than I'd received regarding the science fiction pieces. Still, they were rejections. I was beginning to believe I would never get published. I found a job as an editor of research publications at the University of Washington. But in the early mornings before donning my editor's hat I worked on a novel. It wasn't published, but editors and agents encouraged me to try again. Perhaps I was nanve, but it gave me great hope. I set to work spinning the historical short story that had received chatty rejections in to a novel, The Apothecary Rose . The rest is history. Each month, The Seattle Mystery Bookshop will invite a local author to be here to talk with folks about their own visual art, the written word. As in the gallery walk, when visitors look over an artist’s series of works, the authors will be here to talk about their own series of works in the visial media of words. Authors will be present from 6-8pm. They may or may not have brand new books to talk about. There will be no formal program, so readers are encouraged to stop in on their rounds of gallery visits to chat with the author about their works, their approach to writing, their views on being creators of visual works – whatever may come to mind. It is one more chance for fans of visual arts to meet another type of artist, the writer. (seattle mystery book)
