Today, I’ve invited author and editor of dark speculative fiction, Alex Woodroe. Her writing and editing credits are too many to list in the intro, but I specifically wanted to talk to her today about her collaboration with Brigits Gate Press on their anthology, “A Quaint and Curious Volume of Gothic Tales.” We also talk about her experience as a writer from Romania and how that’s impacted her career, as well as her dreams for fellow Romanian writers. I had the best time with this interview and am so glad you all tuned in for this one. The book is available in ebook and paperback.

S2E11: Widow of Rose House Buddy Read with Wendy Dalrymple
Today, I’ve invited author Wendy Dalrymple back to the show for a Buddy Read on the popular gothic romance novel, “The Widow of Rose House” by Diana Biller. I wanted to round out the Valentine’s episodes with a closer look at a book known for being spooky as well as a proper romance. Since Wendy writes gothic romance, including the novella “The Ghost and Mr. Moore,” I thought she would be the perfect person to buddy read this one with me.
