The Character as Storyteller Some people work best from an outline and I can certainly understand the role of structure in writing. When I sit down to write a story I have a loose outline generally including the character arc for the major players and what needs to have happened by the end. On more than one occasion I have been traveling down a road where I believed I knew what was around the corner only to be utterly surprised by the character having none of it. It's a strange sort of relationship you have with your characters as an author. You are the defacto god of their universe but sometimes their reactions can surprise you. Greedy and selfish characters can hold that last inner spark of decency and noble heroes can give in to bitterness.

Hello, I’m Karen Malena. You are not going to hear a lot of professional jargon, big words or fancy lingo. You are going to hear a simple, yet amazing story, a journey of creativity which began in earnest about two years ago, but really a much longer time ago. My love of the written word really came into play in my fourth grade year when I learned to do book reports. I was such a voracious reader even then it actually got me into trouble. I was, and still am, the type of reader who will read something over and over again trying to soak it up. That year, a book called The Littlest Angel by Charles Tazewell was my favorite. I devoured that book to the point when it was time for my book report, I wrote passages from the story word for word causing the teacher to accuse me of copying. I did no such thing. I was only guilty of loving that book so much I practically wanted to digest it.

Longtime writer Zanni gets his big break By Meg Fraser LONGTIME AUTHOR, NEWLY PUBLISHED: Johnston resident Gil Zanni, who writes under the name G.A. Zanni, recently published “Deceitful Things,” a religious thriller that is available through Amazon and Barnes & Noble. Gil Zanni has been writing books since he was just 13 years old. He spent much of his teenage years reading and writing, sometimes for hours when a story idea took root, but he was a shy kid, and didn’t share his work. Now, the 36-year-old Johnston resident isn’t so shy anymore, and he’s ready to share his stories with the world. “Deceitful Things,” the first of a three-part series, is a religious thriller that follows three characters as they walk the line between good and evil. The book came out electronically on Feb. 28 and will be released in print at the end of March. For Zanni, it has been a long time coming. “If you wait for the right time, that day will never come,” he said. “There is never a right time – the time is now.” Zanni overcame his reluctance to go public with his writing thanks in large part to the United States Marine Corps. He enlisted after high school at the age of 19 and served for four years. That time abroad was a game changer, both for Zanni as a person, and for his writing.
