Bio

Juanita (Nita) Tischendorf

I received a Documentation of Registration from the Writers Guild of America, West, Inc. for my Fiction book, Sins Of The Fathers in 2003.  I had a poem Finding Peace published in Great Contemporary Poems.  I received a Plaque for graphic presentation award for authoring the book, DisplayWrite 4 QuickStart and served as a technical editor for Que Corporation and Sybex Corporation. 

To advance my writing skills, I completed a certification course in fiction writing from Washington University. I attended a seminar on Writing Techniques And Styles, and another entitled How to Become a Successful Editor before going on to write Til Death Do Us Part?, published by IUniverse in 2000.  In 2001, I updated and republished this book through Lulu.com as “Don’t Look Back” and wrote, Who Says I’m Small, a nonfiction book on my dwarf son, published by AuthorHouse in 2006, (Later republished under the title “Over My Head”).

Then for the next three years, I began work on The Madman The Marathoner the life story of Don McNelly, who is one of the oldest marathoners and holds third place in the number of marathons completed.  This book was published by Tate Publishing in 2010, along with the next book, entitled Reflections of 100 years.  The history of the Irondequoit United Church of Christ (IUCC) intermingles with the history of the WCTU (Women’s Christian Temperance Union).

I was interviewed by newspapers, participated in the Author’s Night held at Barnes & Noble to advance my book sales.  I have been interviewed by RNews in Rochester New York (YNN) and written up in “Two Thousand Notable American Women, Third Illustrated Edition” (prepared by the American Biographical Institute and published in 1991).  I was highlighted in an article by About Time Magazine in their Career Profile section in August 1982.  Then shortly after the article appeared I was on the air for an interview at a Syracuse Cable Station in a 30-minute segment entitled “Successful Black Women in New York State” and taped another 30-minute segment for a program entitled “Spotlight On You”.  I appeared on WOKR-TV, “Shades Of Gray Program, for Outstanding Achievement Recognition in 1990.

My recent books include “An Unfair Advantage” continuing the life of my son, Erik Saxton who was murdered in 2010 in Oklahoma City and through the excellent police work, his murderer was found and given a life sentence.

In 2015 I completed The Selfie, a book covering the full training program designed by myself for adolescences and teens as a self-development book from voice, beauty, manners, etc.

In 2016 I completed, Body Of Evidence, a fictional story of a lawyer asked to defend a man who murdered a bar owner in front of witnesses.  Only to realize there is more to the case than meets the eye.

In 2017, I completed a book that I have worked on for many years, entitled, “Playground In My Mind”.  The book is a fiction story of a little boy who is reincarnated through another child to live his life again.

In 2018, at the advice of several girl scout troops, I broke "The Selfie" book into five books.  It was big and thick; not what they thought as being easy to read.  Thank you girl scouts for the great advice.  I will soon be releasing another fiction book this year.  It is in the editing and the 'what to title it' stage.
