Author Interviews

In 2014, I interviewed several authors from the excellent Windtree Press stable of authors (see below). At the bottom of this page is the interview I conducted with the late Iain M Banks in 2010, which you can also view at the original post.

JUDITH ASHLEY

This was the last interview I did with Windtree Press and I really like the animation I did for this one. It helped that Judith has quite a few books out and the covers are lovely. In this interview, Judith Ashley discusses her Sacred Women’s Circle series of novels, her short stories, her life, and her writing process. This interview is also available as audio only.

MAGGIE LYNCH

Maggie Lynch (who also writes as Maggie Jaimeson and Maggie Faire) reveals how having a son serve in the US military in Iraq was the inspiration for her novel, Expendable. She also discusses her Young Adult series, The Forest People in this fun and revealing interview. Also available as audio only.

COURTNEY PIERCE

I talk to Courtney Pierce about her magic realism trilogy: Stitches, Brushes, and Riffs. We also chat about her previous career on Broadway, her writing process, and Courtney’s future plans at the time of the interview. You can also check out the audio only version.

VALENTINES ANTHOLOGY

I spoke to anthology editor, Maggie Lynch, about the Windtree Press’s Valentine’s anthology Gifts From The Heart. We talk about how the stories were selected, what went into determining the sequence in the final anthology, and any favourites.

CHRISTMAS ANTHOLOGY

In this episode, I spoke to The Gift of Christmas anthology editor Susan Lute about the stories, the themes, and the process of putting together this uplifting collection of short stories. This interview is also available as audio only.

IAIN M BANKS

During the Easter weekend, 2010, I interviewed the late Iain Banks at the Odyssey convention (“Eastercon”). Following the untimely death of the jovial and critically acclaimed writer, the video has been released for people to watch again.

With thanks to the nice people at Odyssey.
