An Interview with Heather Kindt

August 21, 2019, Author: Kristin Jacques

Tell us a little bit about your writing journey. Back in 2008, I completed my master’s degree in teaching reading. I always seemed to do well on my papers. At the same time, I devoured the Twilight series. The combination of these two things made me think that I could create my own world through my writing. […]

An Interview with Poe Casavant

May 1, 2019, Author: Kristin Jacques

Introductions please! Tell us about your book! What inspired your main character? Was the writing process pure agony or inspired brilliance? Wolf Smoke was inspired by my grandfather’s old VHS tape of Rollerball. That movie was so quintessentially seventies; the hair, the clothes, the roller skating!

Minutes to Midnight: A Year in Review

January 1, 2019, Author: Kristin Jacques

Growing Pains This has been one hell of a year. Looking back on it all, 2018 very much felt like three years crammed into one.
