Author Interview with Eliezer Sobel

In tenth grade I took a book out of the library entitled How To Develop a Million-Dollar Personality, and that was the beginning of what would become a 30-year obsession to try and fix whatever I thought was wrong with me. I embarked on a lifelong quest for answers, looking for God in all the wrong places and some of the right ones, in an attempt to simply feel better about my existence here on this rather crazy and scary planet. I served as a human guinea pig for every New Age, human potential and spiritual program that came along, and met virtually every major guru and teacher alive today, including those claiming to be the “Avatar” or Messiah of our age...

Author Interview with Paul Kiritsis

Paul Kiritsis Bio:

I was born in Melbourne, Australia to Greek migrants in 1979 and together with my younger brother who is five years my junior, was reared in a somewhat overprotective environment by my grandmother since both my parents worked full time. I quite freely admit I was spoilt from a young age as there was nothing my parents wouldn’t do to satisfy my young ego. If you’re remotely familiar with Greek culture and Greek migrants in particular, this type of red carpet treatment is quite common if not painstakingly regular. Greek parents exist for their children. ‘Everything we do we do for you,’ is something my ears have heard innumerable times over. In their eyes, their dreams are exalted when you succeed in becoming a valuable and successful citizen of society...

Author Interview with Stacy G. Anderson

It’s rare today to find an author who does nothing but write for a living. Do you have a ‘real’ job other than writing, and if so, what is it? What are some other jobs you’ve had in your life?

Stacy Anderson: My ‘real’ job is saving my husband and sons from themselves – I guess that means I’m a modern day version of SuperMom, but then again aren’t we all? I have spent the last few years as a journalist writing for a newspaper and tightening my writing skills, earning awards and building a writing career but my main focus has and always will be as a mom, wife, sister, niece, cousin, granddaughter (my parents are both deceased) and someday, grandma, to my family.

What compelled you to write your first book?

Stacy Anderson: I had a friend that knew what we’d been doing as a fami...

Interview with Author B. Jay Gladwell

Actually, I grew up traipsing around in the hills of West Virginia (that’s where the term “redneck” originated). Yes, I’m a hillbilly, born and bred and proud of it!

My first attempt at writing was in the third grade. Our teacher had us take the list of spelling words for that week and write a story using those words. Much to my teacher’s chagrin I elected to write something befitting “Alfred Hitchcock Presents” (that was one of my favorite TV shows back in the day). She told my parents the story was certainly imaginative, but a bit too gruesome for the other third graders.

Eventually, after a few aborted attempts at writing short stories, I gravitated to screenwriting (I hold an MFA in screenwriting). The idea of writing a book was simply too overwhelming, too intimidating...

Interview with Author Lee Silver

Lee Silver Author Mini-bio:

Thank you for inviting me, Michy!

I’m a southern gal now but grew up in the rolling farmland outside of historic Valley Forge, PA. We’re going on 16 wonderful years of happily ever after. We live in an old Victorian we restored on the Chesapeake Bay and spend the summers relaxing on the beach in Ocean City, MD. Our son is grown and living an apron’s string away from mama right here in Norfolk, VA.

I live a double life, techno geek by day and witchy romantic when the moon is full 🙂 My day jobs have always required a fair amount of professional writing. After a reference manual and a few tongue-in-cheek editorials, I thought it would be fun to try my hand at fiction.

Setting a romance in the framework of high tech intrigue, my technical background turne...
