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)

Interview: Steve Higgs

Today I'm interviewing Steve Higgs, who writes the Blue Moon Investigation Agency series. It's a humorous take on the Paranormal and Urban Fantasy genres, so needless to say I love it. Read on for more about him. 

​Steve Higgs won his first award for writing when aged just ten. Of course, saying it was his first award suggests that there have been more since, which there haven't. However, years of Read more of this blog post »

"Hawthorn Academy series

Can't wait for book 3. Love all the characters. Has great friends and family. Evil bad guys, that you just love to hate. Great series, love it."

"Teen angst

Being a teen is challenging enough. Being a magical with a variety of friends with their own angst plus the mean crowd and inter academy rivalries thrown in, however, makes for a huge mess that takes some sorting out.

“I followed her to the library, feeling like Princess Leia. Instead of Obi-Wan, this snarky girl was my only hope.”
D.R. Perry, Bearly Awake

“Even if I wasn’t so annoying, I’d always been shunned because of what I packed up in the old noggin. I had a totally deserved reputation for being a brain and an attitude. That’s why I went to a school so far from home, to get away from all the people I’d pissed off just by opening my big mouth.”
D.R. Perry, Bearly Awake

“I only had to be careful not to care too much about him after the exam.”
D.R. Perry, Bearly Awake
