  • Thrills and Literal Chills with Girl In Ice Author Erica Ferencik on Book Lights

    28/03/2022 Duración: 31min

    Erica Ferencik considers her MA in Creative Writing from Boston University just the beginning of her literary education. Her thirty-five years of writing—novels, short stories, essays, ghostwriting, ten years of standup and sketch comedy, as well as dozens of screenplays, and a brief filmmaking stint—was her boots-on-the-ground training. Her work has appeared in Salon and the Boston Globe, as well as on National Public Radio.  She says, “I was raised in the wilds of upstate New York during the era when—rightly or wrongly —you could take off after school to explore and no one worried, as long as you were home by dark. Now, I live in MetroWest Boston with my very tolerant husband and frankly enormous Maine Coon cat. I am in love with my family and friends, the startling beauty of the natural world, and the wonders that lay half hidden in everyday life.  Find out more on her website and follow her on Twitter @EricaFerencik And for more about our host Lisa Kessler visit

Besides living the dream writing books, Sam is the head bitch at SMUT University, a school of writing she started for writers to connect, learn craft, and tell dirty jokes. She also edits other peoples’ books , but she is a Pisces so we might as well call it what it is, therapy. So boiled down, Sam is an unlicensed therapist who also writes rom-coms.

    28/02/2022 Duración: 31min

    J.E. McDonald was born and raised in Saskatchewan, Canada, The Land of the Living Skies.

All of these factors contribute to her love of writing rom coms with a paranormal twist, romantic suspense, and far-future romance.
