    Author Ana Stanojevic discusses her new Fire Wave trilogy. Ana has always loved the fantasy and superhero genres and is a big fan of Batman, which she admits was an inspiration for this trilogy. The Fire Wave novels are all about what it means to be a superhero—how to be one and the weight of that responsibility. It is a fun mix of the superhero journey blended with mystery, fantasy and a little science fiction. Her goal now is to one day see her Fire Wave trilogy as a series of graphic novels.

    Bookshop Interview with Author Candace Kade, Episode #206

    Bookshop Interview with Author Candace Kade, Episode #206

    Author Candace Kade discusses her newest book, Hybrid. It is the second installment in Candace’s young adult near-future science fiction trilogy known as The Hybrid Series, which she likens to Ready Player One meets Divergent. In Hybrid, Candace takes on the issues of CRISPR and genetic alteration, adoption and the meaning of family, as well as a bit of fun, including the wonderful celebration of the Lunar New Year. Even though Hybrid is the second book in the series, it is really more of an origin story for main character Lee Urban as she struggles with the idea of family—how difficult it can be, but also how hard we will fight to keep it.

    Bookshop Interview with Author Thomas R. Weaver, Episode #205

    Author Thomas R. Weaver discusses his debut novel, Artificial Wisdom. In this techno-thriller murder mystery, it is 25 years in the future. The world is polarized by politics and is gripped by war, climate change and technology that has advanced exponentially. Tom began writing by asking: What if the global community were to put its faith in an AI leader in a Brexit-style referendum? But all of this serves as a backdrop to a very personal and human story that centers around a reporter whose personal tragedy and grief has a direct connection to the crises that plague the global community.

Something for every writer

I’m glad I found this podcast. It’s filled with intelligent discussion by writers of all genres and life experience. And like all good discussions, there is something in each conversation that enriches my life. This is shoptalk for writers, but it’s thoughtful and patient. Do yourself a favor and listen in!
