Raising Dead Authors: J.W. Schnarr

Raising Dead Authors:  J.W. Schnarr

JWS ProfileNFP has its roots in a business plan I made up about a year ago to publish and market my own books.

That story on one level is about someone’s boyfriend who is invisible and what do you do when you’re confronted with an invisible boyfriend. But on the other hand, at a deeper level, it’s about what do you do in a relationship when the other person is vanishing.

Wizard vs. Witch: Who’s the Real Villain?

The Wizard is in a position of power where he has spent a lifetime misleading the public and frightening his citizens into submission. A little girl from a far-off land approaches him, asking for assistance, and his response is to send her on a mission to kill his most dangerous adversary. In return he makes promises that he’s incapable of keeping, giving snake oil presents to Dorothy’s helpers and then escaping before fulfilling his promise to Dorothy.
