    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 – 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…

    Author Interview – KJ Baker

    This month, I caught up with paranormal romance author KJ Baker about her books: So, KJ Baker, tell me about yourself Witty? Charming? Seriously? Okay, since I’m a writer I suppose I should talk about writing? OK OK, how did you become a writer? I don’t ever remember making a conscious decision to become a writer. It’s just something I’ve always done, as though it’s written into my DNA. I wrote my first book when I was six years old – complete with home-made cover made from a cereal box. It was called The Golden Pheasant and was awesome! (at least in the mind of a six year old girl).…

    Christmas Short Story

    Spoiler alert – this short story is set after Equinox Betrayal, book 3 in the Rise of Dragons series so you might want to finish reading that first… Amethyst & Lorandir’s First Christmas Together I stalled the car as I pulled up outside my family home. Marco had leant us his ancient Volkswagen while he was back in Italy for Christmas and I had cursed the old car and its sticky windscreen wipers the whole journey. We couldn’t even listen to any decent music as the radio was permanently tuned to BBC Radio Four and I was starving after hearing about alternative Christmas roasts for the last hour. I slammed…

    Author Interview – Wayne Turmel

    A couple of months ago, I was lucky enough to be part of a clubhouse group with Jamie Davis and he introduced me to Wayne Turmel. At the time Wayne was venturing into the murky world of urban fantasy fiction. Now his first book in the genre is published, I caught up with him for a chat. So Wayne, over to you. Tell us about yourself… I’m a writer and speaker who lives in Las Vegas. I was a standup comedian for almost 20 years, which brought me from Canada to the US where I met The Duchess, 30 years later, here I am. I’ve written 14 books, most of…
