NINJA STUFF: Indy Author Fair 2017 Genre Writing Panel

Do you like a great podcast, Esteemed Reader? Me too. Especially the Kurt Vonneguys.

I've been wanting to start my own podcast, but there are only so many hours in a day. Still, it's something I may revisit when Little Ninja is older and no longer chattering and yelling in the background of every phone conversation I have:) Wouldn't it be nice to hear me chat with writers and publishing professionals through the magic of the interwebs? I think it would. One day, Esteemed Reader, one day...

Until then, you can fulfill your biggest bucket list item of hearing my melodic voice as I chat with authors during the Genre Writing Panel from Saturday, October 14, 2017 at Central Library in Indianapolis. The video didn't quite work out, but I think the audio is lovely and deserves to be shared with the world.

So if you've got to do the dishes or some other chore, why not listen to this video and hear me chat with fellow genre writers Maurice Broaddus, Sandy James, and Tony Perona, in an event sponsored by the Indiana Writers Center. It's a great discussion and if you hear me being quiet for long stretches, its because I too wanted to hear what advice such talented authors had to share.

My sincere thanks to everyone who helped to put this event together as it was a lot of fun and I learned a lot. The Indiana Writers Center will be putting on more events and I hope to see you at the next one.

Maurice Broaddus is the author of the Knights of Breton Court trilogy, and has published dozens of short stories, essays, novellas and articles. He founded the Phoenix Arts Initiative, which encourages use of the arts for at-risk youth to express themselves. He teaches at the Indiana Writers Center

Sandy James has published numerous romance novels with Forever Yours and Carina Press, and is the recipient of two HOLT Medallions for excellence in that genre. Her indie-published romance novels have been Amazon #1 Bestsellers. She lives in suburban Indianapolis.

Tony Perona is the author of the Nick Bertetto mystery series (SECOND ADVENT, ANGELS WHISPER, and SAINTLY REMAINS), the standalone thriller THE FINAL MAYAN PROPHECY, and co-editor and contributor to the anthologies RACING CAN BE MURDER and HOOSIER HOOPS & HIJINKS. Tony is a member of Mystery Writers of America and has served the organization as a member of the Board of Directors and as Treasurer. He is also a member of Sisters-in-Crime.

Robert Kent is the author of numerous horror novels and stories for young people, including ALL TOGETHER NOW: A ZOMBIE STORY and BANNEKER BONES AND THE GIANT ROBOT BEES. His newest is the serial horror novel, THE BOOK OF DAVID. You're at his website right now. If you really want to know more about him, why not check out his bio page:)
