This time on the podcast the guest is Frederick Bloetscher, who has an entry in the latest RMFW short story anthology, Found.  

Fred’s story is “The Old Coyote” and it’s his first work of fiction.

Fred also talks about the inspiration for the story and, being someone who works in water issues on a national basis, the conversation veers for a while into the inevitable topic of climate change.

Fred Boetschler has 30 years of experience as a civil engineer focusing on water and infrastructure issues.

His hobbies include hiking and photography, both of which played a role in leading to the moment that prompted him to write “The Old Coyote.”

The Rocky Mountain Writer debuts a brand new feature – Writer’s Rehab with Natasha Watts.

In this occasional segment about the craft of writing fiction, Natasha offers brief tips and strategies for braking bad habits.

First up are some ideas for writers who aren’t hitting the necessary word counts in their first draft.

Following Natasha, an interview with the man behind Hex Publishers, Josh Viola.

Last month, Hex Publishers debuted its latest short story anthology, Cyber World.

Josh talks about the overall Hex Publishers approach to books—both the care and editing that goes into putting the stories together but also the planning and detail that goes into the artwork, packaging and extensive marketing campaigns.

He also reveals what’s ahead on the Hex calendar for 2017 and beyond, including some stand-alone novels, a comic book, another short story compilation and a new line of books for children.

On this episode, a chat with fantasy paranormal romance writer Robin Owens.

Robin chats about a recent column she wrote about her love of an audio books and about the two series she has up and running.

We also reminisce about RMFW—Robin was one of three individuals, along with Sharon Mignery and Christine Jorgensen, who were named this year by RMFW as “honored guiding members," those who were around when the organization was just getting off the ground.

Robin D. Owens has published twenty seven books, five novellas, and two short stories.

She was the recipient of the 2002 Romance Writers of America RITA® Award (like the Oscar in her field) for "Heart Mate."

Twice she has been named Writer of the Year by Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers.

She has also received a Lifetime Achievement Award from Colorado Romance Writers.
