    PMP: Wendy Callahan and writing Steampunk Fantasy

    in Spirituality

    RevKess is pleased to get the opportunity to visit with Wendy Callahan, a Nebraskan author and steampunk novelist with an extensive background in Paganism and spirituality.


    Note: The focus of the show went in a different direction at the request of Wendy. She wanted to talk about Pagan parenting, or more to the point, parenting as a Pagan. There is a difference. Tune in for the archive of the show to learn more about that. The topic of her writing came up towards the end of the show.


    As her bio describes: "Wendy is a contemporary and steampunk fantasy author, co-author of "Steampunk for Simpletons," and a genealogical Nancy Drew in disguise. A college town New Englander turned one-horse town Nebraskan, she raises a cup of Dunkies to life among cornfields and coyotes. She is still pleasantly surprised that amber waves of grain exist, and has declared the Midwestern prairies "wicked cool."


    "Her writing has been featured in “Witches & Pagans” (f.k.a. “newWitch”), “The Beltane Papers”, “If… A Journal of Spiritual Exploration” (f.k.a. “PagaNet News”), and many other publications."


    RevKess first "met" Wendy over social networking a few years back and has devoured several of her fantasy novels and shared in conversations about writing. Adding her voice to the conversation, KaliSara will be talking parenting from a Pagan perspective with this multi-faceted guest.

    Author Jacqueline Garlick talks STEAMPUNK on Authors on the Air LIVE interview

    in Books

    Authors on the Air host presents steampunk and YA romance author Jacqueline E. Garlick.  This is what she has to say:  My writing style has been described as edgy and rule-breaking, and by some--a touch Tim Burton-esque. Because of this, I am often referred to as the Quentin Tarantino of YA among writing friends. Lumière--A Romantic Steampunk Fantasy--my debut novel, is the recipient of an indieBRAG Medallion!!!  (LUMIERE by Jacqueline E. Garlick is a B.R.A.G.Medallion Honoree. This tells a reader that this book is well worth their time and money!) Book II of the ILLUMINATION PARADOX SERIES is available now.  Please check out my young adult contemporary romantic/mystery serial, IF ONLY, where reluctant telepathic sleuth Kyla Cooper must embrace her powers and risks all to solve the mystery of what happened to her boyfriend Denver Munro, becoming his voice of truth, before he has no voice at all... Buy Jackie's books here http://amzn.to/1Fh2DPy.

    Steampunk author Jim Musgrave joins Authors on the Air

    in Books

    Authors on the Air host Pam Stack welcomes steampunk novelist Jim Musgrave to the studio. Jim is the author of the Steam City Pirates and the critically acclaimed Pat O'Malley series.


    Author Jim Musgrave said that after reading "The Steampunk Bible" and "Writing Steampunk" he realized that his hero "Pat O'Malley" was destined for the world of Victorian England that collided with science fiction and genteel myteries.  Good thing for us that he was so successful in finding what appealed to him.  His books have become best-sellers and he continues to write his "Steam City Pirates" for all to enjoy.  To read more about Jim go to his website at http://www.contempinstruct.com/.
