    ~~Hello Everyone! My name is Michelle Cornwell Jordan, I am your host!

    I have the pleasure of chatting with two of these "Thinking Outside The Box Artists" Science Fiction and Fantasy Author(s) Jeffrey Cook and Katherine Perkins!

    Jeffrey Cook has a full house, living with his wife of 15 years, one housemate who frequently asks him how the latest book is coming, and 3 large dogs. All three dogs are rescues from PAWS – an organization he has backed for some time, and is currently heading up an anthology series (Shakespeare Goes Punk) to help support.

    The Dawn of Steam books were his first novels. His next planned novels are all Young Adult books, but he plans to return to the Dawn of Steam world and the early 19th century eventually.

    When last we spoke with our intrepid writer, he had just begun the journey into the Constance Mandalay Novels. Now, we get to find out how his writing is going today, and what he does in his spare time. We will be talking about writing, book tours, homebrew adventures, and much, much more.
