Words, written or spoken, have the power to transform views, to transport imaginations. I’ve spent years penning works with the intention of creating interesting worlds and characters for adults. As the author of two novels (with novels 3 and 4 in development) and a poetry compilation, I'm doing my creative thing and sharing it.
My novels, set in the Washington DC Metropolitan area, center on continuing character, psychiatrist, Dr. Naomi Alexander. The character-driven stories give perspectives from the doctor and her patients.
It all starts with Like Sweet Buttermilk: a bit of murder suspense and romance during the trials of marriage counseling. Rick and Viv Phillips are involved in some fiery intrigue in this provocative look at a contemporary love story.
If you’ve discovered my published work(s) and have come in search of more, this is where you will find more in-depth information about the characters that you love (or love to hate) and the worlds in which they live. My co-host, Othello "Skoob" Bookman, can be found throughout the site (and elsewhere) with a side comment or two, just to keep things interesting (we don't know what he might say).
Stories are nothing without people and places that come alive on the page, and sometimes you crave a little more when the book is closed, so sfpowellbooks.com is geared with that in mind. You’ll find a variety of interactive features which bring you closer to my works and my specific genre as a whole. If you’re so inclined, you may even pick up your pen and try your own hand at creating memorable characters that other readers will want to spend hours getting to know.
Before you leave the site, consider writing a review on any of my work(s) that you’ve enjoyed. I’d appreciate you letting me know with a review via social media, or on Amazon, or directly on this website. Letting me know what works for you, helps me prepare for new stories. While you’re here, sign-up for my newsletter, too, for exclusive access to upcoming bonuses and occasional snippets on my writing journey--giving you a glimpse at how it all comes together.
If you’re a writer or just curious about aspects of writing, I'll be sharing a variety of helpful tips (from my perspective) on creating stories that engage readers.
Browse the site. Have fun with some of the interactive features. Familiarize yourself with the books, the characters. Leave your email address for exclusive updates and contest notifications. I will never sell your information, but I do welcome the opportunity to inform you of newly-published works and works-in-progress.
I have some cool things planned,
so stay tuned.
More books and novels are in the works, and in fact, activity for Broken Benevolence is picking up, but two stories are available now.

You’ll find all kinds of fun stuff to augment your story enjoyment within the site. Enjoy the writings of S.F. Powell along with many bonuses designed to help you to further engage with the characters in the books.
Every now and then, an author attends events and participates in other happenings to meet and greet and get interpersonal with fans, authors, and all-around lovers of the written word.
In Broken Benevolence, Dr. Alexander provides trauma counseling to crime victim, Cecily Brooks. Attacked during a home invasion, Cecily has more than her personal mental stresses to overcome.
Sharing the joy is fun. Book clubs do that by their very nature: reading a story together, sharing their insights, disputing a plot point. This page is for book clubs: now fans of S.F. Powell books.
