Forever and a Doomsday on the Rocky Mountain Writer podcast

Rocky Mountain Writer podcastThe best writing podcasts dig deep into the writing process and make you think. That’s why it’s always interesting talking to fellow Colorado author Mark Stevens on the official podcast for the Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers.

Not only is Mark an award-winning author in his own right, he also asks the tough questions about what it’s really like to be a working writer. I’ve been lucky enough to be a guest on his podcast several times, and sometimes our talks take a turn that surprises even me.

In this latest episode, we talked about the inspirations behind the cast of the Dru Jasper series. Especially the fan-favorite demon-possessed car, Hellbringer.

We also talked about the difference between plotting a novel and leaving yourself open for inspiration while you write. Believe it or not, you can have it both ways.

By the way, Mark tried to get me to talk about my super-secret brand-new book (a new one that isn’t even out yet), and I couldn’t help but drop a few clues. Plus, we discussed how to handle working on several different books at once.

Oh, and I also got a chance to read the opening scene of my new book, Forever and a Doomsday.

Hey, there’s tons of good stuff in this podcast. Listen to it here.
