Teacher-Authors–Do You Write Fiction?


Teacher-authors–do you write fiction? I do! And it feeds my soul in the same way that teaching does.

Two of my novels–To Hunt a Sub and Twenty-four Days–are tech thrillers so fit well into my geeky tech-teacher world. The rest deal with how man survived the traumas of prehistoric times.


I feature my fiction writing over at WordDreams.


If you are a teacher who also writes fiction, I’d love to feature your book on WordDreams. I have a good readership with lots of interest in Indie authors. I’m opening up comments so you can add a note there. If you’d prefer, contact me at askatechteacher at gmail dot com.

  1. I’m not a teacher, rather a technology-centric teaching aid, but I’ve used this site a ton. I love writing, and I got a few kids in the NaNoWriMo young writer’s program this spring when we started learning at a distance. It’s fun seeing the imagination in young minds blow up on paper.

    My recently published work rounded out my Fantasy trilogy called “The Sing Wars.” https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B08BYX2SRZ?ref_=dbs_p_mng_rwt_ser_shvlr&storeType=ebooks

    1. Hi Sean–nice to meet you. Love the look of your book. I usually read historical fiction or Westerns but I’ve recently diverted into sci fi (thank you Elon Musk and SpaceX). I’d love if you’d write an article for me on how you got kids into the NaNoWriMo young writer’s program. I know my readers would love that. I have a lot of teacher-authors in my community. It’s a volunteer post but I’ll definitely give you an opportunity to promote your book. Let me know if that works for you. My email is [email protected]
