    Interview: Richard H. Stephens

    Today, I’m interviewing Richard H. Stephens. He’s from Canada and is the author of the Fantasy Series The Soul Forge Saga. Here’s a bit about him in his own words. I began writing circa 1974, a bored child looking for something to do. As my reading horizons broadened, so did my writing. A trip to a local bookstore saw the proprietor introduce me to Stephen R. Donaldson and Terry Brooks. My writing life was forever changed. I worked in a warehouse for 22 years, supporting my family, before I reattended school to complete my education. Graduating with honours, I joined our local Police Service. In 2017, I resigned from the Police…

  • Autumn Authors: Kyleen Valleaux

    Today, I’m interviewing an author who has quite a bit in common with me. She’s got a wicked awesome sense of humor, loves doggies, can’t live without music, and her muse moves on liquid fuel. Give it up for Kyleen Valleaux! Here’s a bit about her.  Kyleen is a Michigan native and telecommunications veteran. She has been writing since the age of twelve, often forgoing homework for either reading the latest Anne McCaffery novel or penning her original stories. (Said stories are locked in a trunk in her bedroom, never to see the light of day.) She was highly active in the early online Elfquest Community and helped found two round-robin writing…

  • Friendly Neighborhood Friday!

    It’s that time of week again! Friendly Friday, where I interview people who help authors get their books out where you awesome readers can see them. And today, I’ve got a cover designer!

Lia Rees is a designer living in London. After several years bringing authors’ books to life, she’s finally publishing her own in January 2017. “But I’m Not Depressed” is about her ten-year battle with the beast of undiagnosed chronic illness. You’ll find…

  • Winter Writers: Lia Rees

    I have a consummate artist here today. You might remember Lia from her Friendly Neighborhood Friday feature as a designer. Well, she’s written a book as well and it’s been released today! Read on to learn what her book’s about and after that, check out her book trailer and author interview. This is what happened when something devastating crashed into an unusual mind. When I suffered a brain injury at the age of 19, I was not told what I had. The world became a dreamlike haze. I was cut off from my own thoughts and memories. Instead of receiving medical treatment, I was sent into psychotherapy. So began a ten-year battle…
