Rachel Kramer: Digital Writer Spotlight

wattpad_good.png Inspired by Edgar Allan Poe, Rachel Kramer launched her short story about a high school student with ‘prophetic nightmares’ on a community writing site.  Follow this link to read more of her work at Wattpad.

Wattpad’s Nina Lassam praised her work: “Kramer is the author of “The Muses,” an extremely popular story on Wattpad that has steadily moved to the top of the popularity charts. Rachel has always been drawn to mythology and the paranormal. When telling a story, she loves to add a little supernatural to the real world, provoking that tiny suspicion in the back of a reader’s mind that says ‘there’s something more to our world.’”

Abi Kirk: Digital Writer Spotlight

wattpad_good.pngAbi Kirk is an archeologist specializing in Egypt and the Cyprus Bronze Age, but she found an outlet for her fiction on a community writing site. Follow this link to read more of her work at Wattpad.

Wattpad’s Nina Lassam explained why she nominated Kirk: “Tattoo of the Black Angel is her debut novel about a university student, Tara, who is given a tattoo of black angel wings on her back. When angered, fully functioning wings tear out of her back. Isolated at first, Tara meets a network of similarly tattooed people whose lives have all been turned upside down by their tattoos and the mythical world they have been thrust into. As the story developed, Kirk saw great potential in trying to educate kids in Greek, Celtic and Egyptian mythology. Her career in archeology inspired her to use these myths and create a story unlike any other.”
