Surprise! We have a bonus episode for season one, which I nickname In the ’Cosm, Special Husband Edition! Yes, my spouse, author Bruce D. Gordon, is making his debut with the first novel in his Dissastified Me series, Dissatisfied Me: A Love Story! Bruce shares with us what led him to this place and discusses how popular culture can serve as major life milestone markers. He also talks about his love of music, and has a fun fact that gives me vertigo! (Btw, to clarify, when I mentioned I was also a dual citizen, I meant Irish and Canadian. My Broose is the Sco’ish one.)

This was such a super-fun interview. Sue Taylor-Davidson is one of the nicest authors I’ve met in publishing. In this episode, she shares with us her passion for research while writing her To Pluck A Crow Series, which began with The Hands Behind Shakespeare’s Pen and the second book, Death Stalks the House of Herbert. It was really great to discuss what it’s like to write about death while going through grief in real life, and the role humour plays in the healing process.

Every time I finish a book, I can’t wait for the next one.
