My guests for February are Dellani Oakes and A.R. Kennedy.
Dellani Oakes is a former A.P. English teacher, photo journalist, substitute teacher and Mary Kay consultant. She says she was making up stories before she could read.
A college theatre major, Dellani took play writing. Scripts being dialog heavy and character driven, this aspect followed her into her novel writing. She uses verbal exchanges & sparring as a way of revealing both plot and characterization.
Her first novel, "Indian Summer", was published in 2008. Her second novel, "Lone Wolf" made its debut in September 2011. "Lone Wolf" is the first in her science-fiction series. Book two of the Lone Wolf Series - "Shakazhan", came out in July of 2013.
In addition to her historical novel and sci-fi, Dellani has added 7 romantic suspense novels, 4 of which are published by Tirgearr Publishing.
A R Kennedy lives in Long Beach, New York, with her two pups. She works hard to put food on the floor for them. As her favorite T-shirt says, 'I work so my dog can have a better life'. She's an avid traveler. But don't worry. While she's away, her parents dote on their grand-puppies even more than she does. Her writing is a combination of her love of travel, animals, and the journey we all take to find ourselves.
I hope you stop by and visit with us.
