Viv Drewa - Owl lover and Author!
Before I tell you anything about myself let me answer a question everybody asks me: Why do you have owls in your novels? The answer is because I’ve always loved them and wanted to work them into my passion for writing. My favorite of all the owls is the barn owl which is on my author’s page on FaceBook and the banner on my blog.
I had been awarded third place for my nonfiction short story about my grandfather's escape from Poland. Later, I rewrote this story and was published in the "Polish American Journal" as "From the Pages of Grandfather's Life" and has republished it on Amazon.com as a short story.
I took creative and journalism courses to help in my transition to fulfill my dream of becoming a writer. I worked as an intern for Port Huron's 'The Times Herald", and also wrote, edited and did the layout or the Blue Water Multiple Sclerosis newsletter "Thumb Prints."
