After quite a bit of technical difficulties, we were thrilled to finally have H.A. “Heather” Titus on with us! She’s the Celtic Urban Fantasy Author of Forged Steel, which came out in summer 2015.

Downtown. Coffee shop. 2 AM. 51ynfuosfcl-_sx322_bo1204203200_

One minute, Josh is firing off sarcastic remarks at his best friend Marc – the next, they’re running from shape-shifters. Apparently, even best friends don’t share all their secrets.

Now Josh is in danger. He can see the monsters among the humans.
When Marc is kidnapped, Josh finds himself pulled into the schemes of the fae courts, and throws in his lot with Marc’s allies: the lovely Larae, a human named David, and the fighter, Eliaster. But what began as a rescue mission becomes something much more involved…

And all Josh wants to do is get out before it’s too late.

In addition to talking about her book and her writing process, Aaron gave Heather a hard time about being from “da U.P.” (Upper Peninsula of Michigan). DC’s Arrow came up, as did Aaron’s theory that the rebooted Star Trek movies aren’t “true” Star Trek.

The idea of “plotsing” comes up, and you’ll have to listen to hear how that word came into being. Heather also discusses some of the weird facts she had to Google, and one of them has to do with werewolves and the Mark of Cain. Kinda interesting stuff!

Oh, and Aaron’s trying to get us our first hate mail. 😉

HA TitusThanks to Heather for hanging out with us, muscling through the technical difficulties, and being one of our early “victims” in this experiment we lovingly refer to as Lasers, Dragons, and Keyboards. Our learning curve is high, but we sure are having a blast learning!
