Join Cassandre Dayne as she highlights artists who take their works to the edge. On Sunday, June 28, 2015 at 2pm EST, Pembroke Sinclair will talk with Cassandre on her latest release, her work with the Forsaken Imprint at Booktrope and her fascination with writing.
She has written an eclectic mix of fiction ranging from horror to sci-fi and even some westerns. Born in Rock Springs, Wyoming--the home of 56 nationalities--it is no wonder Pembroke ended up so creatively diverse. Her fascination with the notions of good and evil, demons and angels, and how the lines blur have inspired her writing. Pembroke lives in Laramie, Wyoming, with her husband, two spirited boys, a black lab named Ryder, and a rescue kitty named Alia, who happens to be the sweetest, most adorable kitty in the world! She cannot say no to dessert, orange soda, or cinnamon. She loves rats and tatts and rock and roll and wants to be an alien queen when she grows up.
Join and enjoy...if you dare...
Fantasy and science fiction are wonderful genres of the speculative fiction realm. Within the depths of the writer's imagination, we can travel to worlds unknown, see and experience strange things of the future, and immerse ourselves with heroes and characters that are memorable. Some have said that fantasy and sci-fi contain some of the best stories.
Join me for this episode of the Write Stuff as I chat with one such author, Guy Stanton III who has a number of books and series under his belt as we get a chance to peel back the veil and find out what makes him tick. His imagination, as one reviewer put it, "...range from James Bond action, to Conan the Barbarian, to speculation about Atlantis, to westerns, to western Science fiction a la Louis Lamour. They are wonderful, escapist fiction done in holiness and fantastic reality."

The west of the mid-1800’s was mired in conflict over the issue of slavery. Against this backdrop, C. Q. Scafidi brings us The Outlaw Unchained: Bleeding Kansas. This conflict plays a role in this action filled novel. And Scafidi shares much about Bleeding Kansas. Never heard of it? Some background and some tantalizing excerpts from the novel are featured in this podcast.
I am truly blessed to be able to make a living doing what I love so very much to do.
I wrote my first story - it was a western - when I was five. It was really awful, as might be expected, but my mother kept that typed and spell-checked (my mother again) short story tucked away until the day she died.
Later I became a newspaper reporter, thinking that books are written by authors which I most assuredly was not. I kept trying to write though, eventually did it wrong enough to learn how to get it right. That first sale, a young adult novel published by Independence Press, was more than thirty years and a good many books ago and I have loved every day since.
Did I mention how very blessed I am? Believe it.

THE REEL COWBOYS, A TRUE AMERICAN ENTITY!
In 1997, seven friends teamed together and founded the non-profit Western Film and TV appreciation organization, The Reel Cowboys.
Originally comprised of entertainment industry types; actors, directors, producers, stunt men and women and other behind the camera people, its' aim was to keep alive the wholesome good values and morals most often portrayed in the American Western drama.
Goodness triumphing over evil and the Code of the West* were in abundance in the golden years of television Westerns and throughout the history of classic Western films.
