IndieView with Nick Hirst author of The Shape of Rain


I heard a story on the BBC while driving that sparked my imagination. Later, in California I saw a road sign that inspired me and gave me another idea and it all sort of gelled into one.

IndieView with Eric Henderson, author of Stranded in Sunshine



I started this crazy blog, The Frantic Flicker, where every week I’d take the title of a current movie and write an original short story with that title in a different genre that had nothing to do with the movie.

IndieView with Brian Bandell, author of Famous After Death

Famous After Death

Burned paper on white background with clipping path

I elaborated on the idea of what it means to lose someone and what hand you played in driving them away. It’s a powerful idea. But as Pablo Picasso once said, “An idea is a point of departure and no more. As soon as you elaborate it, it becomes transformed by thought,” and I will add, by feeling.

The Mistreatment of Zora Langston

WelcomeToGrooveHouse - JillMeniketti


As my guys returned to touring in 2003, seeing them up there, back on the big stages again playing arenas, the idea hit me to explore the twilight years of aging rock stars. Literally . . .

IndieView with Michael J. Brooks, author of Exodus Conflict

Exodus Conflict


There is a little bit of me in Alex Mercer, but the characters are mainly fictitious. To me, it is much more fun to write about people you don’t know, including yourself, and people who don’t exist in reality.
