The Speculative Fiction Cantina with Ashley Chappell and Heather Choate

Today on the Speculative Fiction Cantina we are proud to welcome Ashley Chappell and Heather Choate

Ashley Chappell

Ashley Chappell
Ashley Chappell is the author of the recently released Of War and Taters, an irreverent paranormal romp set in the fictional deep south. She is also the author of the young adult fantasy Dreams of Chaos series (Alice Will, Tilt and A God of Gods) which has been hailed by readers as “Darker and more entertaining than the Heroes of Olympus Series.” The series is set in the sentient god-universe Chaos where a teenage goddess is forced to contend with the destructive habits of her dysfunctional godly elders.

Upcoming releases include: The Hotting, a Dreams of Chaos spinoff adventure for younger readers; and The Editors, a new adult urban fantasy. Other works in progress also include outlining the script for her first comic The Harrows, a gritty adventure in which Hell is a job.

Ms. Chappell currently resides in Huntsville, AL with the love of her life. During her writing time her cats sometimes share her lap with her computer, should they choose to allow the usurpation at all. When not writing, reviewing, or burying her nose in one of her well-worn Terry Pratchett or Neil Gaiman novels, she can be found sailing with her husband on their boat Dupracity (Fans of Kurt Vonnegut will want to ask her what that means).

Heather Choate

Heather Choate
Heather Choate was born in Littleton, Colorado.  She now lives in a small town in Southern Colorado on a farm with her husband and five children.  She chases chickens, declares war on the weeds in her garden and enjoys quietly people-watching.  Most of her time is spent daydreaming of worlds and people that don’t actually exist but reflect the beauty and complicity of humanity.  She was diagnosed with breast cancer in June 2014 while pregnant with her sixth child, spurring her to write about her passion for health and fitness in addition to her fiction novels.  Writing is her escape from diaper changes and runny noses, but motherhood is the greatest journey and joy of her life.
