I’m a huge fan of history and mythology, so the Yokai Calling series was heavily inspired by Japanese mythology and history. I especially drew from myths about the creation of Japan, dragons, as well as various folklores. I love dragons, so it’s pretty safe to say that’s a driving influence in all of my stories. What are you working on next? Since I just finished this series, […]

What are you working on […]
Tell me about yourself. What inspired you to write? I started writing as a coping mechanism for domestic violence happening in my home. But as I grew older, I realized that I love telling stories and building worlds, which is why I continue to write fantasy today. Describe your desk / writing space. I have an adjustable desk on top of a wooden desk in my own office. Theoretically, the adjustable desk is so I can stand but it never works out that way. I write on a laptop with a mechanical keyboard attached to it. To one side of […]
Tell me about yourself. What inspired you to write? As a pre-teen, I found reading enabled me to escape from the bonds of my surroundings, and be transported to other places and other worlds, as I grew older, everything around me was that inspiration. Describe your desk / writing space. I don’t want to sound flippant, but my desk is a trash pile where no-one but I can find things. Seriously, my desk is always a mess, and after I clean it up and organize it, within a day, it’s back to where it was. Do you have a writing […]
Tell me about yourself. What inspired you to write? I started writing at a young age, I was an avid reader of comic books and novels when I was a child and wrote an adaptation of the pilot to The Transformers TV Show on my dad’s TSR 80 laptop. Describe your desk / writing space. It’s a toss up between a table at the local café or a desk that I should use but found writing in a comfortable chair in the living room to be best. Do you have a writing routine or do you write when inspired? My […]
Tell me about yourself. What inspired you to write? 51, Husband, Carer, Father of two girls 12 and 13. I used to be a Theatrical Lighting Designer but when the kids got older we discovered that the youngest has a genetic condition that needs a lot of care. A life on the road is incompatible with a role as a carer so, I needed something to keep the creative bit of my mind going so I didn’t go crazy.When both of the kids were little, I had all kinds of crazy thoughts in those late night and early morning feeding […]
Author Bio Derrick Smythe has been fascinated with all things elvish, dwarvish, and magical since his days of running through the woods with sharpened sticks in defense of whatever fortification he and his brothers had built that summer. After consuming nearly every fantasy book he could find, he was driven to begin work on one of his own. When he isn’t dreaming up new stories, he can be spotted hiking the Adirondack Mountains or traveling the world. He currently resides near his hometown in upstate New York with his enchanting wife, ethereal daughters, and his faithful-if-neurotic Australian Shepherd, Magnus.

I’m always interested in telling stories of strong women who come in and save the day, and when you add a little flavor with superpowers and magic, you’re in for a real treat. What are you working on next? More Star Series! I have a few ideas brewing in the back of my mind, two of which are nearly functional, and I’ll start those when the plots sort themselves out. For now, […]
I’m very excited to introduce Amanda Fleet, author of the Guardians of the Realm series. Tell me about yourself. What inspired you to write? I’ve written since I was young, though none of that teenage angst rubbish will ever see the light of day. I suppose I wrote more seriously much later in life, writing my first book (which will also possibly never see the light of day!) in 2007. I know this will sound terribly cliched, but there were stories and characters in my head and they wouldn’t shut up unless I wrote about them. Describe your desk / […]

I hope that everyone has a wonderful holiday season and that the start of the New Year brings peace to everyone during these difficult times. As I write this newsletter, snow is falling outside my window for the first time this year. Our twinkling Christmas tree and decorated window create a picturesque frame to the majestic, but chilly outside. There’s not enough snow to build a snowman or a fort, but just enough to coat the trees and dust the grass evenly.The view alone makes me think of homemade braided cinnamon wreaths and a hot cup of cocoa. I included […]

What do you guys think of the new cover for Below Dark Waters? WELL, I was hoping to have Below Dark Waters out by the end of the month, but because of COVID and hurricane Isaias taking my power out, there MIGHT be a delay. I’m hoping only a week at most. We only lost power, but my heart goes out to anyone whose property was damaged. There’s been more progress on DNA, a separate project and for the moment, it is still on schedule to be released the end of fall. I’m thinking around Thanksgiving, as long as there are […]
