She lives with her husband, daughter, and dog in the Ocean State, which she loves to remind people is not an island and not Long Island. D.R. is well aware that her home state has both of those things, but isn't defined by th

I might be blocked on a current project, but I can still write a poem or flash fiction piece. I also edit when I'm stuck. Sometimes going back over the previous book shakes things loose. (less)

This is a difficult one to answer because I am under an NDA for the most exotic research I've had to do.

What's been weird for me to research lately concerns toxic substances in the early Twentieth Century. I'm learning a great deal about how things we consider poison today used to be sold as medicine.(less)

Today, I'm interviewing Richard H. Stevens. He's from the UK and is the author of the Fantasy Series The Soul Forge Saga. Here's a bit about him in his own words.

I began writing circa 1974, a bored child looking for something to do. As my reading horizons broadened, so did my writing. 

A trip to a local bookstore saw the proprietor introduce me to Stephen R. Donaldson and Terry Brooks. My writin... Read more of this blog post »

"Campy good

The story was campy but not bad. I like Tino and his friends. I like the idea of a PI vampire. The ending was left a little unresolved. I hope they rap up loose ends in the next book."
