Land of echoes : a Cree Black novel
Daniel Hecht
Adult Fiction HECHT

Comments  Summary  Reviews  Author Notes

Daniel Hecht spent 15 years as a classical guitarist and recording artist before turning his attention to writing fiction full-time. Realizing that he couldn't play the guitar anymore due to a medical condition with his hands, Hecht went back to school at the age of 38 and earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in fiction. After he graduated, Hecht began working full-time as a college administrator and teaching part-time at a state college. During that time Hecht also began writing his first novel, Skull Session. Set in Westchester, New York, the book took Hecht three years to finish. Next, Hecht began looking for a literary agent. After months of searching and half-a-dozen rejection slips later, Hecht made contact with the Watkins Loomis Agency, who put his book up for auction to the major publishing houses in October of 1996. Viking Penguin was the highest bidder, and since then, Skull Session has been sold to publishers in 10 countries throughout the world. He is also known for the Cree Black series which contains City of Masks (2002), Land of Echoes (2004), and Bones of the Barbary Coast (2006). (Bowker Author Biography) Daniel Hecht spent twenty years as a guitarist, a musical career that included albums on Windham Hill Records, concerts at Carnegie Hall, & international performance tours. He received an MFA in writing from the Iowa Writers' Workshop, where he was awarded the prestigious Teaching/Writing Fellowship. He now writes from his home in Vermont. (Publisher Provided)
