D.R. writes all kinds of things. Mostly, they have strange and unusual elements. Not strange isotopes or Strontium or anything like that, but creatures who are people or people who are creatures. Beware of the Attack Poetry and rampant puns. Keep off the grass, or the song parodies may bite.

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 »

Sorrow and Joy by D.R. Perry
"So Happy to visit the revealed world again.

I wondered what happened to Mavis after the Hawthorne Academy books, I figured she seemed...different than her family. So happy to see her story explored, and to see Crowe redeemed. Looking forward to Year 2" Read more of this review »

“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
