D. L. Orton – Darkly Comedic Dystopian Love Story

Author D.L Orton conceived the idea for her epic time travelling novel, Crossing In Time, after a chance encounter with her husband’s ex-girlfriend at a wedding reception. It is a book that is both action-packed and darkly comedic, with some edge-of-your seat plot twists as well. Today we talk to D.L. about what it is that fascinates her about science fiction, which character was the most challenging to create and what fans can expect from her next.

Sophia Elaine Hanson - Gritty Dystopian Fiction With Clashing Concepts

Music is an important part of author Sophia Elaine Hanson’s life, which is why it also plays a big role in her dark, gritty, dystopian novel, Vinyl. The book is the first in a trilogy and features plenty of twists and turns along with flawed, but very relatable characters. Today we talk to Sophia about how music has helped her find her strength, the reaction of readers to Vinyl and her surprising secret skill.

WJ Lundy - Soldiers vs Zombies in a Post-Apocalyptic World

As a still-serving military veteran, WJ Lundy has over 15 years of combined service with the Army and Navy in Europe, the Balkans and Southwest Asia. He is also the author of the very successful WTF series, in which Lundy applies his military experience to paint action-packed, realistic scenes in a post-apocalyptic world where zombies roam the lands. Today, Lundy chats with us about his Escape omnibus, how he wrote his first novel in a notebook in Afghanistan and why his zombies are scarier than most.

Bethany Claire - Time Travel, Castles and Scottish Hunks

Bethany Claire walked away from a teaching degree in order to live out her dream. When she isn't writing about time travel, faraway castles and Scottish hunks, she enjoys playing the piano or planning her next trip. As our author of the day, Claire reveals why she made such a bold career choice, what it takes to be an author and how Love Beyond Time reached bestseller status.

Kat Ross - Magic, Monsters and Doomsday Scenarios

Kat Ross loves to weave tales of magic, monsters and doomsday scenarios. She is inspired by folktales and legends from different cultures, using them to create believable scenes in a world where everything is not as it seems. Today, Ross reveals to us how she uses Wikipedia as an inspiration for her writing, why she does such horrible things to her characters and talks about her fascination with weird Victoriana.

JA Leary - Writing Thrillers About Theocracy, History and the Underworld

Mathematician, computer scientist and former software engineer at Kennedy Space Center, JA Leary is an author who literally dreamed up some of the locations in his debut novel, The Angel Hunter. Today, Leary chats with us about how he created the character of Victoria Hunter and how a book that was banned from the Bible inspired the story.

Moran Chaim - Finding Humanity in a Dystopian World

Screenwriter and author Morain Chaim likes to see, hear and smell the scenes in his mind before writing them down. Living in a country where there is continual conflict, he discovered that there are no heroes in the pointless cycle of violence. His debut novel, a dystopian sci-fi, Human Again, touches on this theme, with riveting scenes that keep readers on the edge of their seats. As our author of the day, Chaim talks about Israel, why he picked cryo-freezing as a method to send his hero into the future and in which way his book is a bit of a warning sign.
