    Author Interview and Giveaway – Jason Parent!

     Ravenous Reads welcomes Jason Parent! Author of “What Hides Within” Be sure to enter the giveaway for a copy of What Hides Within! Jason’s bio: Jason spends his days writing, but it’s mostly drafting legal memoranda as a civil litigator in New Bedford, MA–not exactly a venue conducive to creativity. But during his lunch breaks and after hours, you can often find him at one of the area’s charming coffee shops, huddled over an unadulterated iced coffee with a pen and paper in hand (somewhat old-school in his methods). Hopefully, when you see him, the pen’s moving, and he hasn’t dozed off.    What’s it like being a civil litigator?…

I grew up in a very, very…

     Interview with Author Jonathan Janz:     Q: When did you first know you wanted to be a professional writer?   When I finished playing basketball my senior year in high school, I suddenly found myself with free time after school I’d never had before. Without thinking much about it, I went into our computer lab and began writing a story. I went in every day for a month or so and wrote until Ms. Lyons, the supervisor, (gently and kindly) kicked me out. During the same period of time, I got into a life-threatening car accident and after I got home from a long stay in the hospital, I…

    Author Interview – James Everington

    I found James Everington soon after I got my first Kindle. I found his collection of stories The Other Room and I became an instant fan. My favorite story in that collection is “A Writer’s Words”, which I mention in one of the questions below. Then I discovered the works of The Abominable Gentlemen and I thought I was back in the heyday of mags like Fangoria and Weird Tales. I was as happy as a pig in…..well, anyway these magazines have some awesome short stories and they cemented me in as a fan.  (They are all now available in this pretty cool looking omnibus edition.)    In July of 2012,…
