Starting in October, I'll be periodically interviewing authors I've come across at book events and some whose works I have been devoted to for many years.
In no particular order, expect to hear from:
H. Leighton Dickson - author of Cold Stone & Ivy, a
delightful quasi-Victorian fiction in which our spunky heroine, Ivy - a
writer of pulp mysteries - gets swept up into a real-life gothic
adventure that sets her wits against a killer known as the Ripper for
his gruesome treatment of his victims.
Adam Dreece - whose Yellow Hoods series for ages 9 and up is often referred to as Emergent Steampunk, being set in a low-tech rural environment where machines and gadgetry are just making their appearance. His newest book is a departure to a futuristic, high-tech setting and plot.
John Floyd - an unquestioned master of the short crime story, he's the only person to ever win Derringer Awards in two different categories in the same year.
Beverly Graves Myers - whose Tito Amato mystery series has been enchanting me for ages. Tito's a 17th c. Venetian opera singer, and the books are not only intriguing mysteries but windows to a long-vanished world of opulence and artifice. I've reviewed one of her books here.
Simon Rose - popular writer of adventures for boys, Simon is almost equally known for the quality and depth of his school visiting program.
There will likely be more interviews as I get braver about poking into the psyches of my fellow authors.
