This week, we talk with Deanna Fugett (not to be confused with Deanna Troi). We get right into it with a discussion about oddly named characters, and where some of these names come from (don’t ask…)
Next, because this is a speculative fiction show, we talk at length about Little House on the Prairie (Of course…) Liberty wasn’t around this week to steer us back on track… (because she spontaneously combusted… well, that’s our story, anyway…)
We eventually got back on track (kind of…), and learned that Josh loves depressing endings (Aaron can’t stand them…)
Who’s Deanna’s favorite super hero? Is it Green Arrow? Super Grover? You’ll have to listen to find out.
Does Deanna prefer Scrivener? Word? Pen? Crayon?
We also take a quick break to provide a public service announcement of things computers don’t like (such as hammers and crumbs…)
Lingo 101… We’re thinking of making this a regular feature…
And last, but not least, being eaten alive (metaphorically…)
Some of Deanna’s favorite authors:
– Josh (he’s almost done…)
– Lynn Austin, who writes historical fiction/romance. She has a really good series set in the Civil War (U.S. History, not Marvel, sadly) that does a good job of showing the conflict and motivation from both sides. (Also, if you like history, check out “Across Five Aprils”)
Deanna thinks critique groups are pretty darn important. We think so too!
