The Author’s Voice will explore the mostly hidden world of the up-coming authors trying to break into print. The point of these interviews is to show other budding writers that they aren’t alone as they go through the trials and tribulations of writing. Also to answer the question I always get asked, “where does it come from?”

I will be interviewing authors I’ve had the pleasure to meet, in person or digitally, or have had the pleasure to work with or even learn with and from. While I won’t be reviewing their books (they are a work in progress remember?) I will ask them where they are, their favourite moments or ideas and what drives them to keep going.

Breaking the Silence

OK, yes I have been suspiciously absent. I would normally lament my lack of inspiration, wax long on the toils of everyday life, but I would be lying. Truth of the matter is, my muse has been more talkative than … Continue reading
