Elke Feuer visits the Lair!

We Banditas love to introduce you readers and Bandit Buddies to new authors here in the Bandit Lair. Sometimes it’s old friends who have made the jump over the line from unpublished to published authorhood. Other time it’s new friends we’ve met at a conference or books signing. In fact, that’s how I met today’s guest, Elke Feuer. We were seated next to each other at the National RWA multi-author literacy book signing. We chatted between readers stopping to “discover” us newbie authors and after we got home, we’ve been chatting on FaceBook ever since. So please welcome my friend,

“Who’s Ben Skrewd?”

A provocative question, wouldn’t you agree? Well, last summer a number of us Red Door Reads authors decided that we all knew “who’s Ben Skrewd,” though the encounter is different for each person. Which gave us the idea of creating a character named Ben Skrewd who could appear in a group of novellas linked by Ben and our iconic Red Door. Launching the novellas on Tax Day (April 15th in the U.S.) was an irony we couldn’t resist! Most of us were able to squeeze Ben into a novella in an ongoing series. My novella, Cross Springs In Bloom, takes

How did that happen!?

Over the weekend, I had three interactions with 20-somethings that made me realize that, well, I’m not 20-something anymore. And honestly, it kind of freaks me out. It doesn’t feel like it’s been nearly 14 years since I was in my 20s. I remember sort of freaking out when I turned 30, and it seems like it was at most five years ago. Yeah, not so much. On Friday, I helped a gal in my local RWA chapter and her boyfriend move a TV stand since I have a truck and they don’t. We talked about several things during the

Release Celebration: A New Witch in a Dangerous Dozen

Woohoooo!  Its Party Time!  Today  I’m celebrating witches, magic and nasty exes because those are the themes of my new release, There’s A New Witch in Town.    I’m so excited about this release.  New Witch is a story I wrote just for myself at a time when I really needed the reassurance that writing was something I loved.  I ignored all of the demands to change it, to make it more this or less that, I held tight to my vision of the story.  Why?  Because I seriously loved it just the way it was for a lot of

Mirror, Mirror on the Wall….What the???

Ok, ok….I’ll get it over with. Today is my birthday. And I’m stunned. I look at the year of my birth, calculate the time, divide by days, carry the 2 and dang gone it! How did I get to be the age of my mother?? Now, don’t get me wrong. I am blessed in SO many ways, not just chronologically. But it’s impossible for my mind (my increasingly FORGETFUL mind) to wrap around the age of …I’ll say it. I’ll say it….56! THUNK Wha…wha…gotta stop doing that cause yanno…fractured hips. In the mirror I see lines and wrinkles. The veins
