Author Dakota Kemp has a knack for crafting intricate and fascinating worlds for his novels and his Steampunk epic, Ironheart, is no exception. It was born from his fascination with England’s Victorian Era, but of course he couldn’t resist working with the science-fictionalized version of the period. Today we talk to Dakota about his characters, why stories are an integral part of life and what he has in store next for readers.
Matt K Turner already made a name for himself writing screenplays, but with GENESIS he proves that he is capable of gripping and engrossing sci-fi thrillers as well.

Today we talk to Greg about his personal thoughts on technological breakthroughs, the challenges in store for robotics and why he thinks authors have a lot to fear from robotic writers in the future.
