Play it safe or get out of your comfort zone? Here’s a two-part essay I wrote on the topic, drawing on my own experiences.
David H. Hendrickson’s first novel, Cracking the Ice, was praised by Booklist as “a gripping account of a courageous young man rising above evil.” He has since published five additional novels, including Offside, which has been adopted for high school student required reading, and most recently, Offensive Foul.
He has also published Travis Roy: Quadriplegia and a Life of Purpose, and a book for writers, How to Get Your Book Into Schools and Double Your Income With Volume Sales.
His short fiction has appeared in Ellery Queen’s Mystery Magazine, Pulphouse, and numerous anthologies, including multiple issues of Fiction Fiver.
Hendrickson has published over fifteen hundred works of nonfiction, most recently his first book for writers, How to Get Your Book into Schools and Double Your Income with Volume Sales. He has been honored with the Joe Concannon Hockey East Media Award and the Murray Kramer Scarlet Quill Award.
