My guest today is Teagan Ríordáin Geneviene and I first encountered this terrific lady in blog land whilst browsing for interesting posts for Reblog Saturday. It is very easy to become hooked on her weekly 1920’s ghostly and culinary goings on in her current series Three Ingredients II. This adventurous romp has a feisty heroine, a charming hero and spirits that come and go that include the sad and mysterious woman whose demise is the core of this mystery, as well as a romantic chef and a “ghost-rider” cowboy. Teagan is also the author of Atonement, Tennessee, an urban fantasy that was a National Novel Writing Month winner in 2012.

She has other novels awaiting release. Tatterdemallian: The Electric Zucchini another urban fantasy which Teagan has embellished with what she calls a “steampunkery twist.” She’s editing and revamping the novel before she’ll let us see it. Teagan also has…

teagan geneviene:

Here’s one more in this mini-series of reblogging some author interviews that were done on my readers. Please sit back and enjoy as our lovely friend Evelyne Holingue is interviewed by Kimberly Sullivan.

Trapped in Paris coverI’m extremely happy to have talented author Evelyne Holingue on my blog today. I met Evelyne through her fabulous blog.

I was bound to love Evelyne’s blog and her writing. Evelyne is from France (alongside Italy, my favorite country in the world), where she grew up in beautiful Normandy and studied in Paris.

As an adult, Evelyne moved to America-to California-with her husband, where they raised their children. Evelyne’s posts are full of wonderful observations about life in America through the eyes of a French woman. As the mother of children who have fully integrated into their new homeland, she also offers insight into watching her family growing up in two cultures.

Evelyne writes in both French and English. Her first published novel is a young adult adventure entitled Trapped in Paris. Although I’ve been lucky enough to have hosted many author interviews on my site, Evelyne is…

Meet Guest Author Sally Cronin

teagan geneviene:

Continuing my idea to re-blog (sort of a one-time mini-series) some recent author interviews that have been done on readers of Teagan’s Books. Here’s a great one Chris the Story Reading Ape did with earlier this summer with Sally G. Cronin. Enjoy!

 Sally Cronin 01

Hi my name is Sally Cronin and I am writing this from my home in Madrid where I live with my husband. Before I was a writer, I was many other things to many other people . Now into my 60’s I am enjoying converting a lifetime of travel and meeting fascinating people into words in books, short stories and by blogging.

My relationship with books by other authors.

Sally Cronin 02We moved around a great deal when I was a child with my father’s naval career and lived in some amazing countries such as Sri Lanka, Malta and South Africa. Luckily for me, my two elder sisters who were ten and eleven years older, let me trail behind them from the age of 18 months and when possible do whatever they did. Something that sometimes did not end well! However they were both avid readers and apart from wonderful bedtime…

Making String

teagan geneviene:

What a beautiful story, Deb. I know it’s going to stay with me. Huge hugs!

Originally posted on Debra Paulson:

Back in my craft show days, I used to bring my smaller spinning wheel to the venue to while away the hours between customers. Spinning fascinates children; at the shows, I was a child-magnet and soon I realized I was also the babysitter.

            “Look kids,” the mother or father would exclaim pushing sweaty hair out of their eyes, “she’s making string!”

The kids would gather round and then the parent, after a pause, would slip away, no doubt figuring their children were safe for a bit while they had a few moments to themselves to maybe check out the hand-blown glass booth. At first I was surprised that parents would leave their kids with me, then I felt flattered. Then I felt a surge of parental responsibility. Heck, I figured, I ought to educate these kids. So I would explain how “in the old days” people spun fiber to…

I had the idea to re-blog some recent author interviews that have been done on readers of Teagan’s Books. Here’s a lovely one Olga Núñez Miret did with earlier this summer with Jo Robinson. Enjoy!

Hi all:

As you know on Fridays I bring you guest authors and/or literary novelties. I’ve known Jo Robinson for a while, but recently we’ve been interacting more through her fantastic blog, where she shares everything, from her adventures in health, post offices and moving across countries, to humorous videos, and also the posts of many others. Jo is generous in the extreme and she has helped me meet many other bloggers that might otherwise have passed me by. And she’s a great writer, so I thought she more than deserved a visit to my blog.

Here she is!

Guest Author: Lord David Prosser and his chronicles.

teagan geneviene:

I had the idea to re-blog some recent author interviews that have been done on readers of Teagan’s Books. Here’s a lovely one Olga Núñez Miret did with earlier this summer with Lord David Prosser. To my delighted astonishment, three bloggers have asked to interview me – all within a short time. It was quite humbling. So I wanted to “pay it forward.” Enjoy!

When talking about the possibility of an interview with Olga Núñez Miret I was aware that she was a terrific writer and communicator via her blog and also had a very interesting background. In actual fact I discovered several more layers to this unassuming and talented writer and today I would like to explore some of those in more detail. Firstly a brief bio before we get down to the fascinating interview with Olga.
