Nolon Savas

Soldier, hard rock miner, roughneck, convict, poet. Life is a strange proposition and the shoes Nolon Savas has filled have carried him to some strange and wondrous places. Through it all, he has come to the realization that we are all dealt hardships. What one does with those hardships translates into wisdom or folly. He would like to think that in this stage of his long and arduous journey he has won the right to wear the stripes of adversity and call it a blessing. Savas' writing reflects these ideas. He has invested the legwork so that reads may journey with him through his transformation without wearing your shoe leather thin and, hopefully, come away all-the-wiser for it. Savas' most recent work is "Shadowdancer."
