Interviewed by Elves! !!

Long, long ago, at a convention far, far away … Okay, so it was a couple of weeks ago at Context in Columbus, Ohio. Anyway, T. Lee Harris, Samantha Lopez and I met Babs Mountjoy (a.k.a. Lyndi Alexander). She emailed us later with some interview questions, we answered, and the interview appeared yesterday at her blog, Clan Elves of the Bitterroot.

Her Elves series sounds way cool, and I love this cover. CREEPY! It reminds me of the elves and fairies in a book I had when I was a child. Elves and fairies weren’t anything you wanted to attract. They would steal your baby! They would suck your cow dry! Folks didn’t used to leave milk out for them because elves and fairies were li’l cute and fuzzy like ooo-so-pweshius ‘i’l’ beebee kittehs squeeeeee! Folks left milk out for them because they wanted to bribe them to move along these aren’t the droids you’re looking for.

Do NOT want! Picture ganked from filmsRruss

So, in honor of that thought, I need to recommend filmsRruss, a blog I just found while looking for pictures of scary elves. This particular post is a double review of the two Hellboy films. I saw and ADORED the first one, and now I totally have to see the second. Steampunk AND evil elves! And Hellboy!

I don’t want to leave you shivering in terror from the evil evil elves, so I’m recommending Dear Janit, Some letters I wrote to my cat. The one asking her not to lick his eyeballs ever again is one I think most cat owners can read with sympathy. Wonderful illustrations, too.

See you tomorrow with some kinda nonsense, and Sunday with a Sunday Sample.

WRITING PROMPT: Cats v. evil elves.



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    I’m very interested in steampunk genre. I’m thinking of dabbling in it next. But evil elves, that’s a thought…

      I haven’t worked up the nerve to do the research for Steampunk. I love the look of it. 🙂
