Interviews

Hi Dawn Meredith, thank you for agreeing to this interview.
Booksonline : Tell us a little about yourself and your background?
Dawn Meredith : I've been writing porfessionally since 2000. I came from a teaching background. My speciality is quirky kids. I grew up in England, Australia and Norway. I live in The Blue Mountains, New South Wales, Australia with my family and lots of animals.
Booksonline : What are your ambitions for your writing career?
Dawn Meredith : To retire from teaching and write full time. Of course everyone wants a best seller! So far my most successful books have been non fiction for kids, but my passion is to write fantasy/scifi.
Booksonline : When did you decide to become a writer?
Dawn Meredith : I was a book worm as a kid. The transition wasn't difficult!
Hi Iain McLaughlin, thank you for agreeing to this interview.
Booksonline : Tell us a little about yourself and your background?
Iain McLaughlin : I started writing back in 1985 as a junior on the staff of a children's comic. It's been my life ever since. I continued with the comics, eventually becoming editor of the Beano for a time. AT the same time I have had a second career as a freelance writer. I've had more than twenty novels published, fifty radio plays produced and have also written for TV and the stage. I've written for major franchises like James Bond, Sherlock Holmes and most regularly, Doctor Who. I love that I have so much diversity in the material I write.
Booksonline : What are your ambitions for your writing career?
Iain McLaughlin : I want to keeep writing on a diverse range of subjects and in a wide assortment of genres. I want to write stories that make people feel and make people think.
Booksonline : When did you decide to become a writer?
Iain McLaughlin : I always loved coming up with stories but I really wanted to be a TV director. I saw the job on a comic as a writer advertised and went for it to earn some money before I started trying to get myself onto some directors courses. I planned to stay two years... I stayed a lot longer... an awful lot longer.
Hi Audrey Cowie, thank you for agreeing to this interview.
Booksonline : Tell us a little about yourself and your background?
Audrey Cowie : Hi, my name's Audrey Davis and I'm a Scottish-born former journalist, now living in Switzerland.
Booksonline : What are your ambitions for your writing career?
Audrey Cowie : Since publishing my debut chick lit novel in June – A Clean Sweep – and a shorter, darker prequel entitled A Clean Break, I decided to try my hand at a novella trilogy. Part One of The Haunting of Hattie Hastings is published on 24 November. My ambition is to complete the trilogy by early next year, then focus on another full-length novel.
Booksonline : When did you decide to become a writer?
Audrey Cowie : As a journalist, I've written most of my adult life, but I've always toyed with the idea of writing a book. It's taken me around ten years to actually achieve my dream!
Hi Kip Koelsch, thank you for agreeing to this interview.
Booksonline : Tell us a little about yourself and your background?
Kip Koelsch : I have been writing since my second grade teacher Mrs. Cook encouraged me to create my own books. Since then, I've written short stories, illustrated books, comic books, freelance magazine articles and essays and have now completed and published my first novel, Wendall's Lullaby.
Booksonline : What are your ambitions for your writing career?
Kip Koelsch : To become a successful novelist and essayist. My first novel, Wendall's Lullaby, is now available on Amazon and I am in the process of writing a follow-up.
Booksonline : When did you decide to become a writer?
Kip Koelsch : I've always written but it's been an on-again off-again pursuit over the years. I have owned my own event (triathlons and trail runs) production business for the last six years and while it is somewhat successful, it's not quite what I want to be doing 10 years from now. It's not quite enough of a creative outlet for me. I actually had an old boss offer me another job producing events and that prompted my reexamination of my career goals and spurred me to complete my first novel (which had been sitting virtually finished for 10 years).
Hi Marcha Fox, thank you for agreeing to this interview.
Booksonline : Tell us a little about yourself and your background?
Marcha Fox : I'm what you could call a "Space Cadet on Steroids." I've always loved astronomy, science fiction, and anything that had anything to do with space. I have a physics degree, worked for NASA for over 20 years, an am amateur astronomer and, oddly enough, also a professional astrologer; in spite of what my professors tried to tell me in college, it works quite nicely. I've always loved to write, so of course I write science fiction as well as some books about astrology.
Booksonline : What are your ambitions for your writing career?
Marcha Fox : I was inspired by science fiction as a child to pursue a career in a technical field. I hope to pay it forward by making science fun and exciting, not boring and irrelevant. Research is a grand adventure, which I reflect in my stories.
Booksonline : When did you decide to become a writer?
Marcha Fox : As soon as I was old enough to hold a pencil.
Hi Elizabeth, thank you for agreeing to this interview.
Booksonline : Tell us a little about yourself and your background?
Elizabeth : I grew up in West Virginia and Virginia. I have two grown children living in Oklahoma and Alaska. I have 5 grandchildren. I love anything outdoors like camping, fishing, etc.
Booksonline : What are your ambitions for your writing career?
Elizabeth : I just want to keep doing what I love and that is to write as many books as possible. I write Children's books and YA books. I have a novel almost ready to come out.
Booksonline : When did you decide to become a writer?
Elizabeth : About 3 years ago. I joined an amateur writer's group and got my start from there.

Latest Poem

A silent being filled with hate

Crossed oceans in a bitter state.

Spied a scourge in Everglades port,

Contrived a plan—the wicked sort.

The only way to find relief?

Destroy the vicious, heartless thief.

 

Justice was served at dinnertime,

With no one near to see the crime.

The dour man lurched, his fate was sealed,

Disposed at sea—his death concealed.

Though retribution was a need,

It came by way of evil deed.

 

The absent beast was soon dismissed,

Except by the recidivist.

Questions were asked, no clues were chased,

His bags were gone—his name erased.

The nefarious soul remained consumed,

The ship sailed on, routine resumed.

 

Revenge the price for freedom bought,

Arrived in time to stir the plot.

Two doors slammed shut, a blade dropped fast,

Shipmates stood by—their mouths aghast.

A headless corpse bled on the floor,

While villains planned to kill once more.

 

The ship’s crew masked their growing fears,

As mounting deaths slowed moving gears.

From steel-lined lift to ocean deep,

Lives were lost—yet few would weep.

For who could love a blackguard’s heart,

Except a heinous counterpart.

 

The sullen riders sought to blame,

All trapped inside a villain’s game.

Was there a demon on this craft?

Starboard, port, bow—or on the aft?

The ship of fools sailed aimlessly,

While hooded death steered ‘cross the sea.
