Anthony Bethel

Mililani, Hawaii, United States

Email: akbet1960@yahoo.com

I spent my youth writing short stories about anything and everything, and reading my favorite Tarzan series in seclusion. I’m a very private person, and highly skeptical of anything that appears too good to be true. I wouldn’t trust the Pope in the Vatican in a pool of Holy Water!
I'm a spirtual man! Please forgive my comment about the Pope! The Pope isn't in the publishing or literary agent business.
My distrust extends to literary agents and publishers! We’ve all been exposed to one or two. The fast talking agent with high praises…setting your work on a pedestal before asking for a large fee. Many fall for it, making the fast talker bolder in his next attempt!
Some time I feel like throwing in the towel! However my family and friends familiar with my writing give me that much needed encouragement…promising that one-day someone will find my writings and appreciate my talents!
However, 2013 destined to be my year, began with sorry and a heavy heart. A dear friend and one of my biggest fans passed away on Christmas Day 2012. I miss her words of encouragement!
Anthony Bethel lives in Hawaii with his wife, two daughters and two grandchildren. He's a firm supporter of the men and women in the Armed Services. My prayers are for my son-in-law, may he be safe and out of harm’s way!
I began writing so many years ago and kept my secret safe until 2008. I STRONGLY BELIEVE my challenge isn’t writing, I have many fans and so many stories to tell! My biggest challenge is finding a trusted literary agent or publisher! Hancock Press is not one of them!!
