Author Interview – Greg Smith

Greg Smith, author & graphic designer This interview is with Greg Smith, a graphic designer turned novelist who has written two quite different novels in different genres. Greg is an Australian who has spent most of his life living in the US, but not quite enough to stop him signing off G'Day.  Here are Greg Smith's answers to my questions. How long have you been writing for and what made you start writing? I’ve been writing seriously for several years now albeit sporadically, but it’s been something in the back of my mind to try way long before that. And to answer your question as to what, or in my case who, made me start writing ... I can thank my wife for that. One day I mentioned an idea for a story and she quipped, “That would make a…

Author Interview – Randall T. Lowe

This week's interview is with Randall Lowe, an attorney that has turned his hand to writing a very gritty urban fantasy series, the Felix Chronicles. Do you write for a living, or do you also do other work? I’m an attorney by day (and often by night as well). I didn’t get the itch to write a novel until I had been practicing law for quite some time. How do you deal with the stranger reviews? Since I’m new to the business of having my writing reviewed I have to admit that I find it all a bit terrifying. If an established writer receives some negative reviews it’s not the end of the world as generally a flood of positive reviews will swallow them up and render the “one stars” almost instantly forgotten. For someone like me, on the other…

Author Interview – Jemahl Evans

This week's interview is with Jemahl Evans, author of The Last Roundhead, the edited memoirs of Blandford Candy, the last surviving Roundhead. Laid out like Flashman's memoirs it tells the story of the early days of the First of the Civil Wars in the mid seventeenth century. I've just finished reading the ARC and will write a review next week. How long have you been writing for and what made you start writing? I have always scribbled bits and bobs, ever since I as a child, but I kept it to myself mainly. The opening to The Last Roundhead came to me one afternoon when I was teaching in Hounslow, but then it sat on my laptop untouched. I came back to Wales in 2010, after my father died and Mum was diagnosed with Breast Cancer and COPD, and started to…

Author Interview – Matt Abraham

Today's author interview is with Matt Abraham, his novel is superhero noir, a supervillain turned PI. How long have you been writing for and what made you start writing? I’ve been writing for about ten years, but most of that time I was producing a lot of “blah blah”. It was only in the last three that I’ve produced what I consider well-crafted fiction. I started again because I was tired of stories that were either a redo, sequel, or reboot. I crave originality, like most people I imagine, so I set out to make my own world. Do you write for a living, or do you also do other work? I write for a living, but my lifestyle is heavily subsidized by my wife. See next question for a more extensive response. How did you get into being a…

Author Interview – Peter Bailey

This week's interview is with Peter Bailey, a British based author of horror stories. How long have you been writing for and what made you start writing? I wrote my first ‘story’ way back in March 2011, and story is in quotes because it was a completely factual report of a disastrous trip to Las Vegas – but written in a deliberately comic style loosely based on Dave Barry (And if you’ve never read Mr Barry, please do!) The review is still online at and has gathered over a hundred replies. Now this was very surprising , It had never occurred to me that anyone might be interested in what I had to say, and once the idea had formed there was no turning back. The review became a short story, later stories were printed online and in ‘real’ books…
