In the last few months, we've received updates from several folks who've come to the Taos Summer Writers' Conference in the past and want to share their success stories...
Fred Andresen, who took John Dufresne's master class in 2006 emailed to let us know his historical novel Dos Gringos, was just released and is available on amazon.com. It tells the true story of Andresen's immigrant Norwegian father's escapades in the Mexican Revolution. More information is available at http://www.andersen.com/.
Theresa Layton's short story, "The Other Side," recentently won the Perilous Adventures Short Story Competition in her native Australia. Theresa took Dan Mueller's fiction workshop last summer. Congratulations!
