The internationally-ignored Daniel Saavedra is a Seattle-based, bourbon-addled scrivener writing stories for a frightening legion of dissolute freaks. He is currently and inexplicably published by Brown Paper Publishing―which never returns his calls.

Background Information

Daniel Roberto Saavedra resides in the Great Pacific Northwest, in the ominous shadows of volcanoes Mount St. Helens and Mount Rainier. Over the years, he's come to truly appreciate Seattle's 360 days of rain, as well as its occasional earthquake. He lives in one of the city's most notorious hotels, a flophouse for loons and creeps of all descriptions. Most of his non-writing time is spent in one of several dives, or greasy spoons, where he drinks to excess and records notes of his surroundings in a Mead Composition Notebook.

Saavedra is presently as work on a short story collection, Sparkle and Fade, allegedly to be produced and marketed by Brown Paper Publishing. He's also hacking his way through a novel, Details of the War, a black satire concerning alcoholism and homelessness. Though he's been writing for over thirty-five years, Saavedra has only been published once, in the local arts magazine Misc. Media. A crippling fear of rejection has prevented him from submitting work to other publishers. Eh, bien... Saavedra writes for himself anyway, and not for popular approval.

The fifty-one year old Saavedra enjoys well-chilled martinis and well-cured (if roundly illegal) Cuban cigars. His favorite haunt is the Mecca Lounge on Seattle's Queen Anne Hill, where he can be found scratching his alcoholic itch while playing "Love Cats" on the jukebox over and over. He is an excellent conversationalist, and his favorite subjects are the cinema, literature, and Wagner's Ring Cycle. He also relishes the company of emerging writers, though he doesn't really have any useful advice. He is a full member of the Melange on Monday writer's circle at Seattle's ground zero for literary pursuits, the Richard Hugo House.

His faithful and sole trusted companion is a cat named Delilah.

Major influences: Hunter S. Thompson, Tom Wolfe, Norman Mailer, Truman Capote, et. al.
