About Ed Augusts
Born to Latvian refugee parents in a West German displaced person's camp, Ed came to California at the age of 2. After a troubled and haunted childhood on a ranch in a rural area that would soon become "Silicon Valley", he won science, short story, essay, and poetry contests throughout his youth, including the James D. Phelan award in Poetry. Invited into a select experimental program in college: "Tutorials in Letters & Sciences" he immediately began doing independent research and even more creative writing. Ed became quite interested in Astrology and Tarot, starting in San Francisco during the "Summer of Love". Met Lawrence Ferlinghetti and other writers at "City Lights Books". Published his first book himself at age 17 and has since written in a number of genres, both fiction and non-fiction. Married, lived in San Francisco for ten years, then travelled widely and lived in Canada, Nevada, and now Arizona, which, together with 40 years of California experiences, gives his stories regional flavor. Almost defying easy categorization, he considers himself an AUTHOR, ASTROLOGER, ARTIST, and ADVENTURER. Especially proud of his metaphysical studies and publications and chart analysis work with select clients, he has written more than 35 books and e-books and more than 65 short stories, and also has annotated and/or illustrated, and thus 'brought back to life' forgotten classics. More and more of his publications will soon appear on both Amazon and Kindle! He also sells used and rare book on his "Ed's List" on the Internet, and plays old standards and Contra Dance music on his Yamaha Keyboard!
