LELA: Quick change of direction because my previously scheduled author has delayed his book launch. I’m rechecking with him on his interview details since some time has passed and may run in concurrent with the launch.

E.J. Norris photo.Today’s interview is with EJ Norris, author of The Mirror and the Sword. Welcome to the blog, Emily. Tell us something about yourself.

I’m from the wonderful state of Maine. It’s a fantastic place for books to grow up.

I love Maine! My husband is originally from New Hampshire, so we’ve been to Maine a few times. At what point did you know you wanted to be a writer?

I always loved writing. It was such fun to create whole new worlds where anything I wanted could happen. Most of my very first stories were prompted by grade school assignments. Later I started to really branch out on my own, exploring the art of…

Interview with Stewart Bint

Stewart Bint 1Today’s interview is with Stewart Bint, whose innovative “bee” theme got my attention on Twitter. As my daughter says, our family are “friends with the bumble”. Welcome to the blog, Stewart. Tell us something about yourself.

I live in Leicestershire in the UK, have been married to Sue for 33 years, and we have two grown up children, Christopher and Charlotte (and a very charismatic budgie called Alfie).

Writing, in one form or another, has always paid my bills. I trained as a journalist and broadcaster, also working as a radio newsreader, presenter and phone-in host for ten years, before becoming a Public Relations writer, which is now my main “day job.” I write case studies for the world’s leading industrial CAD/CAM software developer, and I also have my own personal column in a fortnightly magazine. But I get most enjoyment out of my novels.

When did you know you wanted…

Interview with Jenna Nelson

Jenna NelsonToday’s interview is with Jenna Nelson, whose stunning book cover got my attention on Twitter. Welcome to the blog, Jenna. Tell us something about yourself.

Currently, I’m the VP of Marketing at an accounting firm, and that’s how I pay my bills. My husband of 13 years, and my saved-from-the-pound-pup Clancy, tolerate me, which is much appreciated. I grew up in Minnesota, but have lived in Los Angeles for the past 20 years.

At what point did you know you wanted to be a writer?

My first story was a screenplay, actually, and that was about 15 years ago. I’ve always loved writing, but it was never a calling for me until quite recently.

What is your favorite genre … to read … to write?

I love writing speculative fiction. But I read everything – Non-Fiction, Thrillers, Historicals. I just love a good book!

What are you passionate about?

Well, I’m…

Interview with Dan Griffin

Dan GriffinSo, Dan Griffin and I live within 15 miles of one another and move in some of the same circles, but we’ve never met (that we know of). I retweeted him on Twitter and went “Hey, where in Alaska?” and he said “North Pole. You?” and it sort of went from there. Welcome to the blog, Dan. Tell us something about yourself.

I was born and raised in Maine, and resided there until 1990, when I moved to Alaska at the age of 27. In fact, in my mind I believe that I’m still 27! (Lela laughs and says “My husband too!”) I worked for a number of different companies over the years, but now work for a Government contract company called International Auto Logistics. We ship and receive POV’s (personally owned vehicles) for military personal who leave and enter Alaska via military orders. I have been married for 17…
