Meet Alicia Gaile

This week I’m introducing Alicia Gaile, author of Trial By Song and upcoming novella A Coat Red As Holly, both enthralling fairytale retellings.


As the youngest of seven brothers born with magical gifts, Jack’s often felt he has something to prove. But revealing their powers makes them targets of the fae, who will stop at nothing to hide their existence from mankind.

In spite of the danger, Jack sneaks out on Halloween to compete in the Battle of the Bands, shattering his family’s rule to guard their secret at all costs. When Jack gets dragged through a portal and winds up in Faerie, he finds an ancient relic he simply can’t leave behind. But escaping from Faerie is only the beginning as the harp’s former owner is determined to see Jack pay for his crime.

With old enemies returned new enemies awaken, revealing the Sorleys aren’t the only family in Straifield with ties to the fae. Continue reading “Meet Alicia Gaile”

Meet Negeen Papehn

This week I’m introducing author Negeen Papehn. Her debut novel Forbidden By Faith is coming out in spring of 2018 with City Owl Press.


Tell us a little about you and what you’re working on.

A little bit about myself, hmmmm…I am a mom and a wife. I have two boys, they are 8 and 10 and usually keep me on my toes. They are in the “arguing phase” of their relationship right now, so it’s lovely. I am a dentist by day. I know, not a glamorous job, nor is it even close to writing, but I dig it. I get to interact with a lot of people, and I am definitely a social butterfly so it works for me. Continue reading “Meet Negeen Papehn”

Why My Face Turns Off Sometimes

It started as daydreaming. The blank look when the teacher asks a question four times before you figure out she’s talking to you. Then it escalated to distraction. Getting in trouble for looking around during a test only to find myself in the time out corner tracing flower petals on the wallpaper.

Then my siblings gave it a fun new label: turning my face off. Continue reading “Why My Face Turns Off Sometimes”

Meet … me!

Now that I’ve done a few author interviews, I thought it would be only fair to answer my own questions myself. So this week you get to learn a little more about me!


1. Tell us a little about you and what you’re working on.

I live with my husband, two boys, and one country cat who shows his love by jumping out of the bushes and attacking my legs. I bake oddly shaped bread and almost always forget the dough at some point in the process. I volunteer for my church in any capacity that doesn’t require standing on a stage. And I watch a lot of Jane Austen and Disney princess movies to make up for all the testosterone tromping around my house. If you ever catch me humming, you’ll have to tell me, cause I almost never realize I’m doing it. Continue reading “Meet … me!”
