About the panel

Richard Cunningham: A freelance science writer who published numerous nonfiction books and magazine articles for more than 30 years, Richard self-published his first book of fiction, "Maude Brown’s Baby," in 2012. "Three Good Leads," its 2020 sequel, is set in Houston and Galveston during the 1918 influenza pandemic.


Claudia Herring: An award-winning graphic designer whose clients include ExxonMobil, ChevronTexaco and Kellogg’s, Claudia also is the author of four romantic fantasy novels. Her Djinn Chronicles are set in a magical world filled with mysterious powers and tumultuous intrigues fraught with subterfuge.


Alice Brink: Alice’s work as a communication consultant and writer for major corporations led her to help write "Why We Hate the Oil Companies: Straight Talk from an Energy Insider," by John Hofmeister, former president of Shell Oil Co. Hofmeister chose Alice, who wrote speeches for him at Shell, to assist him with his book. Alice describes the project as “speechwriting on steroids.”


Ralph Fuller: Ralph began his writing career as a reporter and later spent many years in medical public relations in Virginia, Washington, D.C. and Boston before launching himself as a freelance writer. His book, "Stow Things, A New England Town Primer," grew from a series of articles he wrote for the local weekly in Stow, Mass. His book, published by the town’s historical society, rekindled local appreciation for the town’s history. Ralph hopes to write a second book about marine life.
