Author Interview: Katie St. Claire

Author PhotoAuthor Bio: Katie St. Claire

I live in the Northern U.S. with my husband and son. I’m an avid reader and researcher, particularly drawn to the inner lives of my characters. More than anything, I love developing complex personalities, and plots that twist and turn. Readers often say, “I didn’t see that one coming.” That’s my goal.

Some of my passions include gardening, photography, crafts, reading, and the Caribbean. Atypical by nature, I enjoys exploring topics that stray from the beaten path. Well known for my sense of humor, sensitivity, and deep philosophical sides, I’m an old soul who will forever remain a kid at heart.

The Van Buren series is urban fantasy with a science fiction flare, and appeals to young and old alike...

Author Interview: Lilah Harding~~Erotic Writer

Lilah Harding studied journalism, worked telephone solicitations to earn money while in college, and fell in love for the first time. From that first tumultuous relationship, she learned the arts of suspense, seduction, anticipation, and illusion. Those arts began to inform her writing, as well.

Facing financial hardship, Lilah discovered by a lucky accident that she had a talent for the entertainment industry of phone sex, which paid much better than the traditional telephone sales she’d undertaken. Each client was a story, a play, an intimate theater production for an audience of one.

The story changed for each client, based on their needs and desires. Stories ranged from innocent tryst to experimentation to humiliation or violence...

Author Interview: DH Brown

Author Mini-bio: D.H. Brown
Hello Michy. Good to talk to you.

Well, I live pretty deep in the Pacific Northwest Rainforest with all kinds of critters besides my wife who is a writer also. We have bear, deer, elk and cougar come through the yard on a fairly often, plus all the coons, squirrels, chipmunks, jays and assorted other vermin we feed on a regular basis. Got a few neighbors around, none with shouting distance and it’s 18 miles to the mail box.

I been fortunate to have lived a varied life that’s ranged from soldier to day labor, professional guide, homesteader, restaurateur to writer. I’ve been writing for years, starting way back during my Army years and before. Mostly nonprofit communications, even tried my hand at movies...

Author Interview: Joel Richardson

Joel Richardson Mini-biography:

I am the author of Antichrist: Islam’s Awaited Messiah, a bestselling comparative analysis of Biblical and Islamic Eschatology. In the early 90’s, I lived and worked in the Middle East. I’ve also been involved in Christian-Muslim interfaith dialogue for several years. Due to death threats to my life and the life of my family, I use a pen-name whenever I write or speak on the themes of radical Islam. I also travel, giving lectures and seminars on issues such as the threat of radical Islam, Islamic apocalyptic belief and human rights.

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?

Author Interview: Michaela Riley

Michaela Riley was born in 1960 and grew up in the Northern Panhandle of West Virginia in a town that borders the Ohio River and is surrounded by beautiful rolling hills.

As a child Riley would spend most of her time reading every book she could carry home from the school library. She admits, “Being a writer was a fairytale for some else’s life. Then I found a story that needed to be told.”

During her college years and after completion of her active duty tour during the Gulf War, she supported herself in a variety of healthcare positions. She plans on retiring from the Army Reserves this year and smiles as she says, “It was the best job and career I have ever had. I love my country.”

Nearly twenty six years later Riley has completed a Bachelor of Science degree in nursing and a M...

Author Interview: Patty G Henderson

Author Bio Patty G Henderson:

I got hooked on Edgar Allan Poe in junior high school, then proceeded to devour anything on H.P. Lovecraft, Robert E. Howard and darker comic books like Batman. I even submitted an idea for a comic book to DC Comics back in the late 60s, complete with a crude drawing of my hero. It was a supernatural type super hero, what else! LOL.

I’ve always written in the horror/dark fiction field and honestly don’t think I am capable of being able to write anything else. However, since as writers, we are urged to stretch our creative minds, perhaps one day I shall have to try a romance that doesn’t include a gruesome murder or restless spirit or vampire! LOL.

I started writing short stories in the late 60s and that remains an art form I love and still practice in a...

Author Interview: Marcus Lyndale

Author Marcus Lyndale Bio:

Born in Barnet, England, I now live in Scotland, a place that has always been dear to my heart.

I have been writing seriously for the past ten years or so but had been contemplating it for much longer. I now have five books published, 3 horror – the Light and the Dark, Eternal Knowledge and When The Sun Goes Down – and 2 crime stories – Diggers and Infection of the Mind.

When I write, I develop my characters before I even put pen to paper (metaphorically speaking in this day and age) and so, when I do write, I can tell the story from their point of view. By writing in this way, I let the characters lead the story where they may – I have no idea as to what the ending may be and am often surprised myself when I get there.

In my real life, I am a photographer, con...
