A Harem Boy’s Saga, Continuing Tales from Bernard Foong

I’m absolutely delighted to welcome back Bernard Foong, a writer whose work I find both admirable and inspiring. Bernard’s words flow with the ease that comes from knowledge and experience, for these books reflect his very own adventures as a youth. His wonderfully descriptive prose quickly reveals what some may consider a myth, or life-style long gone. Yet these truly fascinating books reveal the truth of a world that lays completely hidden from the majority of us. Please do see addendum at the end, for superb news regarding developments regarding Bernard’s incredible saga. Hi Bernard, my first question is: How long have you been writing? Each volume/book in the series took approximately 18 months to write and I started writing A Harem Boy’s Saga; a memoir...

‘Devlin’s Curse’, A Demonic Tale with a Bite by Brenda McKoy

When asked what inspired the paranormal novel ‘Devlin’s Curse’ Brenda had this to say: It was my love of Old West lore, magic, vampires and the living ghost town of Virginia City, Nevada. The characters for the story were first originally created in a previous screenplay I wrote, entitled Red Bluff then spun off to the novel Devlin’s Curse. The book tells the tale of Devlin Winter, gambler, gunfighter and vampire that comes to Virginia City to kill a demon that lives deep in a gold mine. His plans are shot to hell when the woman he loves, Esmeralda Jones, arrives in Virginia City and becomes the bait that draws him into a battle between a corrupt mine owner, a pack of desperate gunslingers and a Babylonia demon. Tell me about being a medium, when you found you...

The ‘Karm Currents’ of Francene Stanley

A prolific author Francene is also known for her outstanding support or other writers, always willing to answer questions and advise. The title of her latest novel, released on 16th March this year, also depicts the calm, relaxed nature of this wonderful lady. Those of you who know me will be aware that I’ll grab at a chance to talk to authors, and today is no exception. Francene kindly gave me this interview, perfectly timed alongside the release of her latest book. Hi Francene, can you tell me where do you get your inspiration from, and in particular for this novel? My own life jolts my awareness. Every person I meet, and each situation I come across leads to thoughts. I wonder why events occur, how people for whom we feel kinship could be close even if we have...

A.B. Funkhauser Discusses her Latest Novel, ‘Scooter Nation’

  Where do you get the inspiration for your writing, and what genres do you specialize in? It’s a very organic thing for me. The first two novels are the sum total of a lifetime of adult observations looking for a place to land. Cocktail party chit chat, arcane one liners, off the cuff toast making. Here and there, someone would say “you should write that down” and I’d smile and think, Where? How? Then it all came together about six years ago. The “where” of it was the first novel; the “how” of it: the characters. The third novel (WIP SHELL GAME) and the inspiration behind it speaks as much about genre than anything. I never sit down with the idea that I’ll write a comedy or paranormal or romance that day. Rather, something strikes me and after a lot of...

An Interview Wth ‘Aria’ Writer, Geoff Nelder

  When I was a child there was a popular saying, that birds of a feather flock together. With that in mind I’ve become blessed with a great many friends who share my love of writing, one of which is Geoff Nelder. He and I ‘met’ electronically many years ago via the British Science Fiction Association’s Orbiter writing groups. The coordinator put in a short story group run by Geoff and then a novel group run by him also. In this I was extraordinarily lucky, Geoff is both a great teacher and avid writer. I’m also a great fan of his writing and naturally grabbed this opportunity to chat to him about his work. What made you write science fiction and do you write other genres? The Earth wasn’t big enough to contain my crazy imagination and so I had to reach...

‘The Boy Scout’, by Vanayssa Somers.

  The Boy Scout was published by Summer Solstice on 12th February 2016. It’ my honor to host a blog for the author of this novel, and wish her all the best for its success and future endeavours. Bio My desire to write was driven by the transformative power of Story. As a child, I loved books about characters who did the right thing and overcame great odds. I was fired with the hunger to experience transformation in my own life and inspire others. Born in a Yukon winter, I moved to beautiful British Columbia as a toddler and grew up in the deep forests of Vancouver Island. Over the years I trained as a Registered Nurse, earned a B.A. in Sociology from University of Victoria, worked as a Reiki Master, Psychic and NLP counselor. I was blessed to mother a...
