    George Taylor,Historical novels

    in Books

    Historical novels provide us with information, drama, interesting settings and fascinating characters.  Not to mention, that we actually can learn something of actual events.  In this podcast, I examine and play samples from two of the historical novels which I have recorded.  From the days of the founding of our country, we’ll ask the question, “Would you sign?” from theDeclaration of Independence Series.  From the troubled Civil War era, we’ll watch the surprising actions of a sutler in Murray Pura’s series, Let Freedom Ring.

    Laura Daleo, Queen of Paranormal Romance Novels

    in Writing

    Born and raised in sunny San Diego, California, Laura Daleo's desire to tell stories was sparked by a  creative writing class she had in junior high school; however, Anne Rice's Vampire Chronicles was her true inspiration to write a novel. Her book, Interview with the Vampire, published in 1976, has gone on to become one of the best-selling novels of all time.

    After reading the chronicles of Vampire Lestat, the driving passion to write her own vampire legend tingled in her fingertips. In 1996, Laura completed and copyrighted Immortal Kiss, but it sat patiently for 14 years. It was in 2010 while packing to move that she stumbled upon it tucked away in her closet. After dusting it off and sitting down to read, she fell in love with the story all over again; though, the 14-year-old novel needed modernizing. Consequently, she began the journey of reviving Immortal Kiss.

    In 2013, 3 years later, Immortal Kiss was off to the publishers and agents.  In 2014, it found a home with World Castle Publishing, and 1 year later, Immortal Kiss was hot off the press and available to the public. Laura is in the process of modernizing and reviving its sequel, Bound By Blood that she completed and copyrighted May 2001.

    Other completed works in the queue to modernize and revive are: The Vampire Within (2004), A City of Vampires (2007), and The Soul Collector (2010).  Future projects for creation are: The Ten, The Old Ones, and Vampire Amon.

    Working Mom becomes established author of beautiful novels. Call in!

    in Spirituality

    After years of working in radio sales and raising four daughters, Charters became VP of marketing for Viacom TV, then branched-off and opened her own advertising agency, Charters Marketing, with her husband, Matt. “He’s the business brain, I’m the creative one.”

    The writing bug had bitten a long time ago, but its effects stayed hidden until it was time.

    “People sometimes wonder where a character comes from. ‘When did you think up Mary Boland anyway?’ I don’t know about all authors, but for me, Mary Boland was a magical name I heard through my childhood from my mother and aunts. She was my great-great-grandmother. There were no pictures of her and no records of her accomplishments, but she came to me in dreams…a young girl with curly red hair, riding her horse along the Irish seacoast.

    “Tell my story,” she whispered.

    In her first iteration, she was the start of a novel called Daughters of Ireland, Mary was the first in four generations of women. Writing class instructors and published authors alike told me, “Each of these women deserves her own book.” They were right. So, I started over and told Mary’s story in Shanty Gold.The next woman’s story is half written and will be called Lace Curtain.”

    Patricia K McCarthy and Her Crimson Series of Vampire Novels

    in Writing

    Patricia K McCarthy is Ottawa’s fang queen. Her Crimson series of vampire novels tell the unconventional love story of Samuel and Magdalene Crimson, and are part-blood bath and part-bubble bath. Her writing teases readers to make it to the end of each chapter alive. Patricia was riding the vampire wave before there was one, which accounts for her flirtation with the dark art of satire. Read her Crimson series and you may never feel the same again as you walk the streets of Ottawa when the sun goes down.

    As an indie publisher, Patricia’s knowledge of the business has been honed over the past fifteen years. Her interest in writing showed itself at six years of age. She has attended workshops on the fundamentals of writing, editing, and promotion, as well as having published three collections of passionate erotic poetry. Her work has been published in the U.K., Canada, and the U.S. In the beginning, her poetry evolved to short vampire stories and these in turn inspired her to begin the Crimson vampire series, which represents the last decade of her writing accomplishments. In between writing novels, she crafts short stories and works in Ottawa. Her work has received extensive publicity in Ottawa and elsewhere; copies of her media interviews can be read online. (See her website for details.) 

    Patricia divides her time between writing and work, coaching new authors, making appearances at fantasy fairs and exhibitions as well as holding workshops on Writing Fantasy Fiction.
