Broadly Speaking: Faith and Fear

I had the pleasure to be one of three authors discussing faith and fear on the inaugural episode of Broadly Speaking, a new podcast series produced by members of Broad Universe.

Check it out at

Here's the description:

Welcome to the very first Broadly Speaking edition of the Broad Pod. Broadly Speaking brings you interviews and insights from women writers of science fiction, fantasy, and horror - and all the realms in between. Keeping with the Broad Pod's theme of Faith and Fear, Broadly Speaking will chat with Jennifer Pelland, Morven Westfield, and Gail Z. Martin about how they've used faith and fear in their writing, advice on how to do it well, and even how selling and marketing can be affected. Join host Trish Wooldridge for some true tales of women's adventures in writing!

Broad Universe Reading at Boskone

Broad Universe Rapid-Fire Reading
at Boskone 48
February 18, 2011
9 PM, Lewis

I'll be reading with fellow members of Broad Universe, an international organization dedicated to promoting, encouraging, honoring, and celebrating women writers and editors in science fiction, fantasy, horror and other speculative genres.

If you've never been to a Rapid-Fire Reading, give it a try. They're a lot of fun, yet sometimes very sobering and thought-provoking as well. You might hear stories of horror, fantasy, or science fiction -- or a delightful combination of all of the above. The readers this time include Jennifer Pelland (moderator) Justine Graykin, Elaine Isaak, Shira Lipkin, Suzanne Reynolds- Alpert, Roberta Rogow, Trisha Wooldridge, myself, and others.
