Bela & Stephen – Writing our way into the New Year!

Looking back – 2023

Bela wrote her first story – The Best Defense. The online magazine Mystery Tribune published it!

Stephen and his wonderful actor friend Phil Lenkowsky wrote SLIM AND SLAM, a fictionalized play loosely based on their early years as street performers. Stephen has been busy trying to find the right theater for a trial run. Stephen may even end up at a theater conference in Alaska with the play.

We’ve finished the first draft of our fantasy novel Wu Wei Warrior. We love our heroine, Lucy. She’s done a fine job of perfecting her superpowers and, saving the world!

Looking forward – 2024

Next up, a brief two-day getaway to celebrate our achievement(s) and then more editing and polishing of Wu Wei Warrior before going out to find a great agent! We’re using a “lazy words” list we’ve put together to cull unnecessary verbiage from the draft of the book. This list is available on request. Please send an email to if you’d like a copy for your own literary endeavors.

Wishing you the best, with all good wishes for a happy healthy new year.

Bela & Stephen
