Claire L. Fishback, who enjoys scaring readers more than a little, is having a busy year. In March, she released LUMP: A Collection of Short Stories, some 51 tales in all. Among those is “Remembra,” the story she published as part of the RMFW short story anthology FOUND.

And this month she is releasing The Blood of Seven, a novel that has been in the making for eleven long years.

As she recounts on the podcast, all this started in sixth grade, when Claire wrote scary stories to defy a teacher she didn’t like, yet that teacher told her to keep writing.

In the Blood of Seven, Detective Ann Logan sees a shimmering vision of a young girl. She tries to dismiss it as a trick of mountain light, but she can’t dismiss the arcane symbol that rose like a brand on her chest and burns with life when the vision becomes reality. Then townspeople begin to disappear, and Ann’s investigation plunges her into an eternal war between two secret societies -- one serving the malevolent designs of a mysterious deity and the other trying to keep them at bay.

Do not let the blond hair and blue eyes fool you into thinking she might be a romance writer. Claire L. Fishback loves the “shock value” of a good tale of horror or suspense.

And now for something completely different. And funny.

Feeling a little down? Feeling a little blue or stressed out?

This interview with Rebecca Rowley just might cure a few ills.

Rebecca is here with her new book, How To Be Funny and Make People Fat, a cozy comedy memoir featuring recipes and vignettes about how one humorist's mother influenced her comedic, culinary, and life skills in and out of the kitchen.

She’s also here to preview her new anthology of stories, due out later this month – The 27-Hour Day.

Rebecca "R.J." Rowley is a joker of all trades who captures life’s absurdities on the page and keeps them there until the proper authorities arrive. A Colorado native, she is the author of cozy-comedy memoirs, humorous fiction, and satirical guides to life.

Outside of her library of books, other publications include satirical articles, short works of fiction, and random acts of poetry.
