    Frances Pauli:


    Frances Pauli writes speculative fiction, usually with touches of humor or romance, which means, of course, that she has trouble choosing sides.
    She's always been a fan of things outside the box, odd, weird or unusual, and that trend follows through to her tales which feature aliens, fairies, and even, on occasion, an assortment of humans.

    Shannon Celebi, Author of Speculative Fiction

    in Books

    Shannon Celebi writes speculative fiction in all its weird and wonderful forms. Residing in Ashland, Oregon with her husband, her son, two neurotic cats, and a dilapidated laptop named Persephone, Shannon has two collections of short stories, Small Town Ghosts, and Small Town Demons, available on Amazon at http://amzn.to/19lodTU.


    Shannon spends every waking hour at her computer, but if she gets a brief moment of respite you can usually find her curled up on the sofa with a kick-ass book and a steaming mug of Joe (Sumatra from Starbucks is her favorite). Shannon also enjoys windsurfing (not), hang-gliding (super not) and long walks on the beach (maybe).


    Shannon has far too many favorite books to list in this little space, but if she had to pick three, she'd probably say, "This Body by Laurel Doud, Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte, and Heart Shaped Box' by Joe Hill." Of course, she couldn't pick just three, so she'd also name, The Song of Ice and Fire series by George R. R. Martin, The Shining by Stephen King, and Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn.

    Today's guest are science fiction writer Kent Hart and paranormal fiction writer Barb Jones


    Kent Hart: Having been born on December 24 created an important life lesson; choose wisely, the best gifts are not always large, or heavy. Armed with a high school diploma, I followed a family tradition of military service, and despite Army tours in Vietnam and Iraq, I continued to pursue my favorite activity of reading science fiction. Now retired, I have more time to pursue writing which I hope never to tire of.


    Novels: The Eyes Behold Tomorrow, Behind the Gem


    website: www.kenhartscifi.com


    Barb Jones: I loved telling stories ever since I was a child about vampires, werewolves, angels, demons, and witches.  I was a little girl who loved scary stories, much to my mother's dismay. The scarier - the better. Hawaii was a perfect place for stories until I moved to Seattle. I decided to turn a love for the supernatural into writing stories to see if others would love them as much as I do. Currently, I live in Florida but since I'm a Seattle girl at heart, my stories take place in the Northwest. I continue to write supernatural stories of vampires, werewolves, witches, and more while enjoying the beaches and sunshine.
