It’s my great pleasure today to welcome an author after my own heart. Anna Belfage, the author of Revenge and Retribution (Book 6 of The Graham Saga) loves lots and lots of tea and lists …. in fact she could be my twin.

This week I’d like to welcome Annie Carter to the first Thursday Throng author interview of 2014. Annie is the author of The Book Beyond Time. The year is 2325 – three hundred years after the Great Catastrophe, which wiped out most of Krinton. It’s now a world ruled by the legendary emperor, Treanthor, where technology is limited, education is discouraged and children become adults on their thirteenth birthday. What would you do in such a situation?
This week I’d like to welcome A. Katie Rose to the Thursday Throng hotseat. Apparently she is a self confessed workaholic who writes in what little remains of her spare time after she’s worked, rescued cats, drunk wine and beer and ridden her horses.

This week I’d like to introduce everyone to Melissa Bowersock, the author of Stone’s Ghost. Melissa is a prolific writer with ten novels and one non fiction book to her name (and her pen name Amber Flame). It seems she can turn her hand to a variety of fiction genres that include contemporary, western, fantasy, romance, action/adventure, spiritual, satire or biography.
This weeks Thursday Throng interview is with Martyn Stanley, the author of the Deathsworn Arc fantasy novels. Martyn Stanley has always always been fond of epic fantasy series, fantasy adventure novels and similar. The Deathsworn Arc is a different take on epic fantasy though, it’s written by an author with a keen interest in science, atheism and pragmatic morality. The science, the atheism and the moral questioning within the framework of ‘pragmatism’ bleed through into the world of Torea, and the epic fantasy adventure series ‘The Deathsworn Arc’.
