In the past I’ve spoken to some wonderful people who have not only said yes to being interviewed, but often shown me so much about themselves that reflect my own journey as a writer. I don’t wish to discard the time spent with them, or what our mutual aspirations revealed, so you can find guests listed below;
11th of May 2019
Using an encounter in a nursing home as a springboard of a romance across time, Behind the Fan is a gripping story of intoxicating love, burlesque clubs, and mobsters.
27th of April 2019
This fortnight I’m talking to Hart St. Martin who writes young adult fantasy. A proud feminist, Hart writes stories about strong women who can conquer anything that life throws at them, which is more than a fictional experience for Hart. She writes her heroine Lisen of Solsta as a strong, smart and capable woman who will push back when called for. The first book in the six book series, Fractured, went on to win the award for Best Indie Book of 2013 by Reader’s Choice.
13th of April 2019
This fortnight I’m talking to KS Ruff who writes romance, much to her surprise, instead of being a lawyer. Inspired by joining not one but two book clubs, KS Ruff wanted to give the writing a crack herself and while teaching as a professor at the American Military University. Writing the Broken Series, KS Ruff is also working on her first YA/MG fantasy novel based on Irish Mythology, Saving Tir Na Nog.

Angela Gyurko whose first play, Triangles, was performed by junior high kids at the Key City Public Theatre. The story follows the shifting friendships between three girls and two boys as they progress from 7th grade to 8th grade. While performed by a young cast, the play was intended for an adult audience, a gentle reminder how hard life is when you’re 12 and 13.

9th of February 2019
This fortnight I’m talking to Kindar Ra’Harashal who last year wrote a million words! (A MILLION!) If you need a lesson in dedication Kindar is it, he works 12 hour days, six to seven days a week. He writes about relationships between men, some not about love and others very explicit.
26th January 2019
Jess Alter, writer and freelance editor/proofreader with IndieImprint. Jess writes scifi in her Cryptid Series, which is available on Amazon, when she’s not helping the writing community or giving out hugs and support. Cause she’s amazing like that.

L. McGrew swung by for the Christmas Special and talked her writing and goals of being a producer and seeing her characters come alive. From a background of being a Twi-hard (we won’t blame her), and writing fanfic, she’s turned a love of characters into a book that’s not about vampires. You can find B. L. McGrew swanning around Twitter, and her website, and her book We Are Immeasurable can be found here.

26th September 2018
Beth Overmyer, a fantasy author who has twelve published works. She’s won awards for the Best Comedy at Gotham Screen’s 2008 screenwriting competition for The Method, and an honorable mention for a short story in Allegory’s 2010 spring/summer issue for Red.
From fantastical kidlit to everyday popular fiction, Beth knits together her prose in a small Ohio town. Her hobbies do not include cat-hating or traveling. She adores her cat, Cricket, and traveling will happen someday, but for now, the farthest Beth travels is the western parts of her brain during cold, dark months of editing.
