I was joined by Urban Fantasy author Kieva Mclaughlin explore the alternate afterlives in her book TORPOR, how the pandemic inspired her to take the writing plunge, and how to balance marketing strategies. Plus we discussed the root of writer's block and how much fun it is to explore our secret favorite characters!
V. S. Holmes is a science fiction and fantasy author who created the NEL BENTLY BOOKS and the BLOOD OF TITANS series, among others. They were born to Priscilla Bannister and David Voorhis circa 1989 in the United States of America. As a disabled and nonbinary transgender human, they advocate for representation in speculative fiction worlds. When not writing, they work as an archaeologist with their spouse, Bradley Kirby and their dog, Rory.
Included is a photo of V’s father, who was a pilot and shared a deep love and spiritual connection to space, and an excerpt from Travelers, the first of V’s Stars Edge: Nel Bently Books, an archaeological sci-fi series about where we come from, and where we’re going.
