TCL’s Countdown Questions #15: Author Roz Morris.

An Alternative Author Interview: TCL's Countdown Questions. This week I’m featuring author, editor, speaker, writing coach, ghost-writer, (and my friend) Roz Morris. I came to know Roz Morris when she contacted me with a request to read and review one of her books. Now, normally, when someone pitches me a novel in a genre I … Continue reading TCL’s Countdown Questions #15: Author Roz Morris.

TCL’s Countdown Questions #14: Author Jane Healey.

An Alternative Author Interview: TCL's Countdown Questions. This week I’m featuring author Jane Healey. When I first heard of Jane Healey's novel "The Beantown Girls" I must admit I was skeptical. To be honest, I wasn't sure I liked the cover (something about the red glasses on one of the women bothered me). But we … Continue reading TCL’s Countdown Questions #14: Author Jane Healey.

TCL’s Countdown Questions #13: Author Crystal King.

An Alternative Author Interview: TCL's Countdown Questions. This week I’m featuring author Crystal King. I'm not sure when my love for culinary fiction began. Maybe it was one of Joanne Harris's books that got me hooked. I've read quite a few, actually. My love of Rome came from reading Colleen McCullough's "Masters of Rome" books … Continue reading TCL’s Countdown Questions #13: Author Crystal King.

TCL’s Countdown Questions #12: Author Andrea Bobotis.

An Alternative Author Interview: TCL's Countdown Questions. This week I’m featuring author Andrea Bobotis. Andrea Bobotis' debut novel "The Last List of Miss Judith Kratt" just blew me away, I loved it THAT much (and as of this writing, it is still my favorite book of 2019)! I'm now following (hopefully not to the level … Continue reading TCL’s Countdown Questions #12: Author Andrea Bobotis.

TCL’s Countdown Questions #11: Authors Heather Webb & Hazel Gaynor.

An Alternative Author Interview: TCL's Countdown Questions. This week I’m featuring two authors who recently published their second collaborative novel Heather Webb & Hazel Gaynor. Long ago, when I was first blogging, I was fortunate enough to read Heather Webb's debut work "Becoming Josephine" which I called "a masterful debut novel" and I've been a fan … Continue reading TCL’s Countdown Questions #11: Authors Heather Webb & Hazel Gaynor.

TCL’s Countdown Questions #10: Author Kate Quinn.

An Alternative Author Interview: TCL's Countdown Questions. This week I’m featuring author Kate Quinn. Before I read "The Alice Network" and "The Huntress" I had heard of Kate Quinn, but never read any of her books. This is probably because her previous novels were set in ancient Rome, and although I enjoy that era for … Continue reading TCL’s Countdown Questions #10: Author Kate Quinn.

TCL’s Countdown Questions #9: Author Mary Glickman.

An Alternative Author Interview: TCL's Countdown Questions. This week, featuring author Mary Glickman. I discovered Mary Glickman's historical fiction work via the wonderful NetGally. Admittedly, I was curious and a bit wary of these books because they sounded like there were Jewish themes, and Mary isn't a very Jewish name, yet Glickman could very well … Continue reading TCL’s Countdown Questions #9: Author Mary Glickman.

TCL’s Countdown Questions #8: Author and Poet Kathleen Rooney.

An Alternative Author Interview: TCL's Countdown Questions. These are the questions I'm asking authors to answer, as I think they'll give insight into them as people, as well as who they are as writers: If you could visit five (5) places you’ve never been, where would you go and why? Name four (4) foods or … Continue reading TCL’s Countdown Questions #8: Author and Poet Kathleen Rooney.

TCL’s Countdown Questions #7: Author Alma Alexander.

I "met" Alma through the usenet message board misc.writing. Although we've never met in person, and Alma writes in a genre that I don't generally read, I have read one book she wrote, together with the man she later married, Deck Deckert, "Letters from the Fire" which was (we believe) the first email epistolary novel ever written!
