Joy and Grief - Today, I should be seriously happy. My latest book, Omission, is finally out, and I’m so thrilled to share it with the world. As I got online this morning to start work for the day and get some things done I didn’t get done yesterday, I was slapped in the face. A little boy, Rowan Windham, all of 10 years old, passed away overnight. I’ve never met Rowan, but I know of him. And he and my son share a special set of circumstances: both went 2000+ miles to Seattle to undergo bon...

LDK 47 & 48 – Keven Newsome - In these episodes, we have with us pastor and sci-fi writer Keven Newsome, author of the Winter series! * We must apologize for some technical issues in these episodes. Liberty tried her best to clean up the files, but it wasn’t having any of it. * In Episode 47: Liberty gets her geek card revoked by Keven as we discuss the Chronicles of Narnia. We have a lively discussion in general–as per usual–without Josh. In Episode 48: Plotting/pantsing theory. Keven’...

LDK 45 & 46 – Kerry Nietz - We were totally delighted to hang out with one of the forefathers of the awesome Realm Makers conference in these episodes, Kerry Nietz! Kerry, as he says, is a refugee from software engineering, and is the author of Amish Vampires in Space (as seen on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon!) In Episode 45: Revisiting story worlds by writing Frayed. Threadbare, the main character, and why Kerry loves him. Throwing characters curve balls (No, not literally…) Liberty’s...

LDK 43 & 44 – John Brhel - We had John Brhel on with us in these episodes. He was a bit of an unknown to us, but we had a lot of fun hanging out with him and talking about Marvelry’s Curiosity Shop. He’s part of a writing duo with Joseph Sullivan and they tend to write horror. Marvelry’s Curiosity Shop definitely has a horror vibe to it even though it’s more paranormal fantasy, but also a lot of human interest. Episode 43: The influences that helped create Doctor Marvelry and Marvelry’s Cur...

LDK 41 & 42 – Celesta Thiessen - This week on the show, we have Celesta Thiessen, the author of the Super Seven series.

An impromptu author reading of her favorite scene from Two of a Kind! The science behind her superhero powers in her books. Celesta’s favorite superhero…and how he figures into the Marvel Cin...

LDK 39 & 40 – Laura VanArendonk Baugh - This week on LDK, we have a wonderful time talking with Laura VanArendonk Baugh (try saying that three times fast!) We managed to get a few details about ancient Japanese culture, of which, Laura seems to be a near-expert on. In Episode 39 Kitsune is a fox spirit, hence the foxes on the covers of her books. The folklore roots within her books, including some loose relation to Pokemon. Laura thinks our favorite character question is a mean question to ...
