I was on the Fantasy Fiends podcast!

I joined the guys on the Fantasy Fiends podcast to talk about the many faces of addiction, a theme that crops up again and again in my fiction.

During the show we talk about compulsion and addiction and the ways authors can use those themes in their work.

Andy and Stevie also gave a rousing performance of my short story Basilisk on a Yellow Field from my short story collection Her Name Was Red.
