Eden’s Exchange Talks to Mackenzie Brown (@MackBrownBooks)

Author Mackenzie Brown and I met sometime ago on Twitter and Facebook. He was genuinely sweet, so I invited him for an interview. I’ve also learned since then he’s extremely patient. He had to fill out the responses for my interview twice as the first document disappeared into the ether. Darn Internet!

It’s all the more reason I am happy to give Mack space on my blog to talk about himself and his books.

Please learn more about this lovely author and connect to him. Continue reading

Eden’s Exchange talks to John Anstie (@PoetJanstie) #author #interview

I remember the exact moment when I met John. It was on twitter August 2011. I was having a conversation with another Englishman about the London riots, and John interjected and suggested I read his article on the matter.

I did.

The rest is history, really. We’ve been friends ever since, and have discussed numerous topics ranging from poetry to politics to music to the Royal Mail system. He’s helped me in a fundraiser for a fellow author, and he’s been a constant source of friendship.

For all these reasons, it’s my privilege to highlight John and his writing.

Please give a very warm welcome to poet/writer and consummate thinker, John Anstie. Continue reading

Ned Hickson is a terrific writer, and he does it with a sense of humor. On more than one occasion, I’ve done a spit-take while reading one of his blog posts.

It’s my great pleasure to introduce him to you, and I can’t remember the last time I’ve laughed so much conducting an author interview. Thanks Ned, I need to clean my computer screen again! That’s the last time I drink expensive scotch while I’m reading your stuff!

We connected after he read one of my books, and have been friends since. As in the serendipitous world of the social network, he also happens to come from my provincial birthplace of Quebec. Small world.

Read an Exchange with Author Angus Vieira

Angus Vieira is an author I met by way of mutual friend, screenwriter/poet Wally Lane. We read each other’s books and connected on Facebook. To say that he is an ‘interesting’ man would not do him justice. He is a unique blend of sexy and sassy, raunchy and sagely, and someone who does not mince words.

See what I mean by reading more about the one and only, Angus Vieira. Continue reading

Read an Exchange with Author E.N. De Choudens (@ENDechoudens)

Author E.N. De Choudens, whom I call Efrain, connected with me some years ago when he fanned my Facebook page. We chatted about so many things, including books. I learned he wrote in numerous genres: erotica; poetry; science fiction; and horror.

Coming from a Spanish background, I knew English was not his first language, but that never stopped us from having the most charming conversations. You will discover that for yourself in his responses.

Please welcome Efrain and find out more about this dedicated and talented man. Continue reading
