Richard L. Wren

Author Richard L. Wrenabout this book: This was my first novel and surprise, surprise, it won a NATIONAL AWARD from INDIE EXCELLENCE in 2014. I started writing it at age 82 and it was published at my age 84. While the story is entirely fictional, the characters come from contacts I've made throughout my life. I grew up in Oakland and know it & Northern California very well. My wife & I have owned 4 sailboats and have sailed the West Coast extensively. We number several "Sailboat bums" & "Cycle club members" as friends and models for the book's characters. I still have many of the Pacific coast charts which were invaluable for the open water scenes in the book.

I have now published 3 novels and 1 Writer's Guide booklet and am 3/4 done on 4th novel.

What I learned from my first novel was, don't quit. My 1st reviews were not good. I re-edited. Reviews got better and better and then finally, the INDIE EXCELLENCE AWARD.

I made lots of mistakes and learned from them. What I learned that may benefit others is in my top rated, "A Practical Guide to Writing & Publishing a Novel."


• "Casey's Slip is entertaining from the very first page! Full of well written characters, who are unique, easily relatable, and artfully woven together to maintain intrigue and reader devotion throughout the story. Overall this book is an adventuresome read that provides plenty of amusement and escapism for any reader." — AMAZON REVIEWER
