    Author Interview – Linda Ling

    This month, I caught up with fantasy author Linda Ling. Linda, tell us a bit about yourself and how you became a writer. I’ve always been a writer. As far back as I can remember. As a kid, whenever we traveled, my dad would make me write a “post-vacation report” for him to read (I should ask him about that someday). But my first story was written when I was 14. My first poem when I was 15 or 16. I wrote three or four complete books by the time I was 22 or 23. But life happened and I took a pause. A very long pause. I locked up…

    Author Interview – Andrew Claydon

    This month, I caught up with fellow Brit fantasy author Andrew Claydon to chat about how he started writing and favourite authors. His latest book, Strange Companions, is out on 5 December and if you like reluctant heroes, irreverant fantasy references and chickens, I recommend you check it out. So, Andrew, tell us about yourself. That’s a toughie, because I can come up with all kinds of stories and characters, but ask me to talk about myself and I draw a blank. I suppose the first thing to know about me is that I’m a guy living his best life being an author. I’ve always thought I had one book…

    Author Interview – Winnie Winkle

    This month, I caught up with author Winnie Winkle to talk about the inspiration for her books and chat about her series. Winnie, tell us a bit about yourself. First and foremost, I’m a water baby. Which, as a Pisces living on a boat in Florida, helps. I grew up in the US MidWest on and around lakes, but once I moved to Florida thirty some years ago, I knew the sea was my element. In my tiny condo in Daytona Beach Shores, I’m a horizon junkie, in love with the thin line between now and next. On the boat, we’re anchored seven miles inland from the Gulf of Mexico…

    Author Interview – Heather G Harris

    So, Heather, I know you from a UK writers group we’re part of, but for those who don’t know you, tell us about yourself. I am a thirty something mum getting a second chance at life. I was a lawyer. That was great, it helped people but… it was super stressful. And my bosses wouldn’t let me work flexible hours or pick up my kids from school, which sucked. Writing became my retreat during the pandemic. I hit publish and a year later I’m incredibly lucky that it is now my actual job. It’s a weird job, you basically invite people to have a snoop around in your mind. So…
