It’s time once again for the Hulegaard Books Podcast! My guest for this episode is In Another Life author, Julie Christine Johnson. We talk about Julie’s early interest in creating stories as a child, and take a closer look at both her critically-acclaimed debut novel, and her upcoming book, The Crows of Beara.
After a very long hiatus, I’m pleased to announce that the Hulegaard Books podcast has returned. It most likely won’t become a weekly fixture as it once was, but my goal will remain the same: To bring you compelling conversations with some of the sharpest minds in the literary field.
My first guest is none other than the illustrious Tony Healey, the best-selling author of Hope’s Peak. In this episode, Tony and I discuss his journey to traditional publishing, and the aftermath of success. Check it out below!
In this week’s episode, I am joined by Washington, D.C. based author, Michael Shean. Michael and I talk about how he’s turned a history of nightmares into a positive, his impassioned thoughts about equality for sci-fi writers, and a deep dive into the world of his flagship series, The Wonderland Cycle.
All this and more in episode 08 of the Hulegaard Books podcast. Let me know what you think about this week’s show in the comments!
In addition to the release of his debut novel Division Zero, Matthew Cox and I also discuss finding an audience in the sci-fi genre, dabbling in high-fantasy, and his upcoming collaborative series with Hulegaard Books podcast favorite, Tony Healey. And just for fun, we talk about video games, too. 🙂
