Writer Embraces Challenge of New Millennium Times
New book and host of websites chronicle life and work of American author.
While his newest book release is in fact The Bridge of Silver Wings 2009, a collection of poetry that includes presidential inauguration poems documenting the impact of U.S. President Barack Obama, much of his most recent work, which some rank among his most influential, has taken the form of journalism and blogs. Why such an eclectic body of work?
“It’s not about confusing anybody and it’s not just to indulge my individual penchant for literary versatility,”
To date, that has meant the publication of an award-winning encyclopedia on the Harlem Renaissance, a critically acclaimed novel, an inspirational profile of celebrated scholar W.E.B. Du Bois, a literary memoir of life in Savannah, Georgia (USA) and four volumes of poetry. This accomplishment has been chronicled in Dream Reachers, a new book by Betty Dravis and Chase Von in which the authors present interview profiles of more than three dozen “legends and legends in the making.” Included among them is ultimate Hollywood icon Clint Eastwood, influentional political leader Ted Kennedy, singer/actress Kiara Hunter.
In addition to his recognition in Dream Reachers, the author has been a featured writer on a number of websites such as LibraryThing and GoodReads.
Thus far in 2009, Aberjhani has compiled a considerable body of journalism focusing on the changing agendas of civil rights organizations––
“Most of my readers online are accustomed to finding my work at either AuthorsDen or Creative Thinkers International, so the Red Room action took a few people by surprise, including me [laughs]. I’m still on AD, and Creative Thinkers International is basically my home site growing more populous every day, but in addition to being one of the most attractive and classy literary web spots around, Red Room developed out of an actual writing school in the San Francisco Bay Area, which kind of stirred my nostalgia for the cultural climate I used to enjoy there years ago. That in turn sparked my creativity to produce some pretty meaningful blogs at a rate I never had before, and thanks to technological wizardry like RSS feeds I’m able to simultaneously post them on Amazon, Blogger, GoodReads, Ning, MSNBC, and Wordpress.”
The rush of creative energy also prompted Aberjhani to begin work on his second novel and a new play, neither of which, the author said, he was ready to discuss at this time. For more, please visit his profile at the following links:
