Visiting Authors

There are just never enough books. 

Well, here is a place to get to know the wonderful authors who write them. 


These authors share their characters, setting, and snippets, or they braved an interview to reveal their writing processes, strange research methods, weapons of choice, struggles, tips, and joys! And learn what weird things they keep on their desks. 

Brew up some coffee or tea and enjoy. Feel free to comment on the posts and visit the authors’ links. They would love to hear from you!
