Trio of Interviews

A trio of (relatively) recent interviews all landed online in a short span, so here’s a roundup:

Haley Pauls from The Uniter reached out to me and some other fine local writers about the state of the Speculative Fiction scene in Manitoba. It was a super fun feature. Check it out here.

Darren Ridgley and Adam Petrash, editors of the anthology Alternate Plains, which contains my story “Lurkers in the Leaves,” asked me a few questions about my story and writing to celebrate the anthology’s launch. Check it out here. There’s interviews from a bunch of the other contributors, all worth checking out, on the same site.

And most recently, the Geekspin Podcast had me on to talk about my writing process, musical influences in Thunder Road, and why I killed the Geekspin Podcast’s host in Too Far Gone. Check it out here.

Thanks for having me, folks!

Thor’s Day Guest Post on As You Were

I’m hanging my hat over on David Jón Fuller’s blog As You Were today, talking about writing, music and how they came together in the creation of Thunder Road. Metal, Myth, Monsters; that’s what David promises on his blog, so if you read and enjoy my post, stick around and see what he’s up to, you won’t be disappointed.

Ragnarök and Roll: The Music of Thunder Road


Parnassus Unbound

I’ve been hanging on to this news for a while now, but Edge Science Fiction and Fantasy has a listing of the contributors for Tesseracts 16: Parnassus Unbound here, so now you get to know too:

I’m in!

Editor Mark Leslie bought my story “Back in Black.” Parnassus Unbound is speculative fiction inspired by literature, music, art and culture. I rolled the dice hoping Mark wouldn’t be put off by a story about an obsessed AC/DC collector. It’s a story I had been looking for an excuse to write for a long time, so thank you Mark and Edge, for the opportunity.

I’ve also wanted to land a story in Tesseracts for as long as I’ve been writing. This is definitely a milestone I had set for myself. What makes the news even sweeter is that I get to share a table of contents with so many friends I’ve made over the last several years.

Write on!
