Editorial Reviews

Review

"The combination of warmth, fun, and smouldering passion with the dark, prejudice-ridden historical context makes Vanda Writer's OLYMPUS NIGHTS ON THE SQUARE a tale not to be missed." (Ben Miller-Jarvest, IndieReader, Dec. 6, 2017)

"Al herself is growing in every chapter, and changes from terrified girl with an impossible dream, to a businesswoman who has earned the grudging respect of many powerful men.... We're treated to historical glimpses of stars, such as Walter Winchell, Liberace, and Mayor O'Dwyer; and squirm with Max, Al's mentor and ally and Marty, a former soldier and aspiring actor as they struggle to be their true selves." (Chanticleer Book Reviews, Dec., 2017)

"The novel gives us a panoramic view of the times seen through the eyes of her (Vanda's) characters.  I found it all fascinating. Vanda is also a playwright and dialogue drives her novels- making for interesting and engaging writing." (Janet Mason, International LGBTQ radio syndicate, This Way Out, December, 2017)


"Olympus Nights In The Square by Vanda is the second book in the Juliana Series.
How would you feel if you were told who you should love and if you didn't comply, you could be branded as a criminal? Once again, the author has captivated me with the way she effortlessly transports me to the early post World War II years. I slowly fell in love with the descriptions of Manhattan and I also loved the colorful and hilarious characters that kept me enthralled throughout this novel. I enjoyed reading about women in the workplace in the post war era. 

This novel clearly shows how far women's rights and the LGBT community have come. I have a greater appreciation for all of those men and women who have fought for our rights to live and love out loud. I believe it is important for the LGBT community to be reminded of the struggles and sacrifices that have brought us to where we are today. Why is this important? It is important for someone like myself because I live in a country where my love is illegal and the LGBT community in the Caribbean is often sidelined and our rights are ignored. Therefore, reading this story has showed me that it is possible to see light at the end of a very dark tunnel. Our Caribbean LGBT activists are not giving up and it gives me some hope that someday I may have the opportunity to say that my country said YES! to love and freedom for all." (The Lesbian Review, 2/11/18)

About the Author

I was born and raised in Huntington Station, Long Island, but my mother would never let us call it that. She said we came from South Huntington. Saying we were from Huntington Station, according to my mother, made it sound like we came from the other side of the tracks. And, well, Mom, we did and that fact has greatly influenced my writing. My novel, JULIANA (Books 1 & 2) is the first in a series in which the same characters live out LGBT history in New York City through the decades. My life mission at this time is to honor this history and to let people, gay and straight, know that the LGBT community shares a rich cultural history that is as important and as valid as any other minority group's cultural history. Plus it's fascinating. Juliana was long listed for the Ms. Lexia Novel Award, was a finalist for the Goethe Book Award and the Saints and Sinners Award. Book 3: Olympus Nights on the Square (1945-1955), the second novel in the series, is due out October or November. Juliana currently has 66 Amazon customer reviews with a rating of 4.9 out of 5. As a playwright, I have received a numerous honors, such as an Edward Albee Fellowship. My play, Vile Affections, published by Original Works was a finalist for a National Lambda Award. Another play, Patient HM, which later became The Forgetting Curve, won the Pride Stage and Screen's Women's Playwriting Award and is currently under option to Theatrum Mundi. Why'd Ya Make Me Wear This, Joe, won Celebration Theater's (where Naked Boys Singing originated) Best New LGBT Play. My non-fiction story, "Jack," was published in Prairie Schooner and another non-fiction piece, "Roger: Lost Between Philosophies," which appeared in Pentimento was selected by New Millennium Writings for Honorable Mention from a submission pool of 1,300.
