Author Interview: Diana Pharaoh Francis

Diana Pharaoh Francis taught herself how to ride a horse at the ripe old age of six years. The next few years were spent either so lost in a book that her family had to send a search party out after her, or bareback on a horse, herding cattle and still more horses.

Author Interview: Alma Alexander

She was born on the banks of the blue Danube in a country whose name is but a memory. She left that home at ten, and lived in five countries on four continents before setting up shop in cyberspace. When asked about her life, all she will say is that she was born six years before men walked on the moon, and is married to a man who wooed her in cyberspace and lured her to America. But if you want to know about Alma Alexander’s stories, ah, that’s something else entirely. Continue reading
