  • About Me

    Savannah Schroll Guz is author of the short story collections, In the Aftermath:Stories (2012); American Soma (2009); and The Famous & The Anonymous (2004).

    Why do you write?

    I often write to get closer to defining my understanding of the world, although this is often expressed through the experiences of other characters. Often, when I come to some great personal realization, it ends up somewhere in my stories as a harrowing experience or individual epiphany one of my characters has had.

    Any favorite authors? Books?

    Joyce Carol Oates, Gunter Grass, George Orwell, E.L. Doctorow, John Updike, Aldous Huxley, Ray Bradbury, Richard Ford.

    Hi Savannah, thanks so much for the kind comment and fave for "Baby, Baby..." I like your profile picture. : )

    Thank you, Savannah. I'm really pleased that you like "In Search of Harvey." I hope you marked it as a fav (I'm seeking to have one in the recommended category).

    I'm too old, lazy, and typing-challenged to attempt a novel. This started as a short-story, but meandered into a word forest. I'm considering a novella.

    Thanks for reading Art Lessons from Jung’s Notebook of Dreams, Savannah. I appreciate your words.

    David Ackley – Jun 23, 2010

    Thanks, Savannah, for the read, the kind words, the fave, so proud to be in the elite company of your favorites.

    Thanks for the fave and comments on "Being Picasso." I've always been fascinated by people like Picasso, by the vague borderlands between 'genius' and over-the-top personality disorders. I tried to capture the man from the inside. I'm so glad to hear that it rings true, despite the effort to amuse.
