Myrna Santos has taught English, ESOL, and writing at Nova Southeastern University and Florida Atlantic University, both in the USA. With Cambridge Scholars, in 2015 she published An Introvert in an Extrovert World: Essays on the Quiet Ones, a book which was one of the first to take seriously the challenges faced by introverts in an increasingly extroverted world. Following her academic career, she is now the owner and director of English Made Easy, a school of language and culture in Coral Springs, Florida.
Three years after the publication of her first book, Myrna has now returned to Cambridge Scholars with her second book, entitled Handmaids, Tributes, and Carers: Dystopian Females’ Roles and Goals. This book places a spotlight on the place of women in various dystopian and futuristic popular media, with The Hunger Games, Divergent, and The Happiness Patrol all featuring.
Myrna explains her reasons for first working with Cambridge Scholars, and why she returned to publish her second book:
“I believe in the power of the written word. I believe in its ability to stimulate and generate feelings in people that can be achieved in no other way. So, I imagine it follows that I have always wanted to be a writer; I express my feelings best through writing. When it came to publishing my first book, I selected Cambridge Scholars Publishing from among several offers, and I am very pleased that I did so.
From the beginning the whole process, from my author liaisons to my editors, advisors, and cover designers, has been amazing. I cannot imagine the procedure being smoother or more pleasant, and it is purely because of the people with whom I have worked. Everything works as a well-oiled machine; when one process is completed, the staff at Cambridge Scholars immediately move you forward to the next one. There were never agonising delays when you, the author, would have to wait endless amounts of time to try and figure out what was going on. This uncertainty has never happened to me with either of the books that I have published with Cambridge Scholars.
I would absolutely recommend Cambridge Scholars Publishing to any aspiring author, and I hope to work with them again in the future.”
