About the Writer

I still feel a little funny saying it, but it’s true. I’m a writer. I wrote my first story “Mr. Dog and the Mean Monsters” at the tender age of five, and I spent the early years of my career helping young people tell their own stories as a writing teacher. Today, I’m a professional copywriter, local writing community advocate, and like any Serious Writer®, I’m diligently toiling away at a novel.

I can truly say that writing with Autumn was one of the most powerful experiences I’ve had. Not only did I learn about the craft of creative writing, but she gave me the confidence and tools I needed to believe I could write something worth reading.

AWARE COPYWRITING SERVICES

I launched my copywriting business in 2013 to prove a point. My husband Jack believed I could earn a living as a writer; I believed he was nuts. Nearly a decade later, I have to admit defeat in this one argument.

Collaborating with Autumn on projects is an experience I cannot recommend highly enough. She’s an incredibly valuable resource that will add weight to any marketing project or team. She’s patient, understanding, and represents the high-water mark in our profession.

PERILOUS & SPARKS

In 2017, I started writing the campy Cold War YA series Perilous & Sparks. I self-published the first novel Les Stone Cold Killers in 2018 followed by The Kowloon Jukebox in 2019. After a two-year hiatus, I’m returning to work on the third novel Two to Tangier. In this far-flung adventure, an uneasy alliance of Aquarian Age gurus and mystics are on the hunt for an enigmatic artifact reputed to give power to whomever holds it. Naturally, Perilous and Sparks intend to beat them to the prize while enjoying a jaunt along the infamous Hippie Trail.

How do readers describe Perilous & Sparks?

Fearless

This book is everything the blurb promises — a campy, cloak-and-dagger story in which the crack team of Perilous and Sparks combat the evil Omega Foundation and locate a dangerous weapon that could destroy the planet. The author has created captivating characters — including two amazingly fierce, fearless, and stylish female secret agents — she writes incredible action scenes, and her descriptions of France will make you want to book your next holiday there. I had so much fun reading this book and can’t wait for the next one in the series. James Bond — watch out, the girls are in town!

A delight

Imagine the TV show The Americans, but campy, set in the 60s, with gender-bending protagonists sleuthing the streets of New York and Paris. It’s intrigue, it’s resourceful soubrettes, it’s careening through the French countryside in an Aston Martin and spy gadgets that freeze or explode to keep you guessing. This book is flying first class when you thought you’d be in coach. It’s a delight. Looking forward to book number two!

Thrilling

What a clever fantastic story. It’s got sassy strong female leads, super spies with gadgets, high fashion, action, and murder. What more could you ask for? I seriously can’t wait for the next one! All the fun quirky characters were a blast to read about. Sparks and Bette are definitely my two personal favourites of them all. A.Ware’s descriptions wove a detailed scene for her thrilling tale to take place. It was truly wonderful how easily I could close my eyes and be in Paris whizzing around on a Vespa.
