Today on the Speculative Fiction Cantina we are happy to have Meredith Skye and T. Eric Bakutis as guests.
When I was young, I lived in Alaska. As an adult, I moved back to the land of the Midnight Sun. I began writing fiction in elementary school and always wanted to be a novelist. I was fascinated by tales of the fantastic and bizarre, tales of strange worlds.
I love to travel. I have a fascination with the Middle Ages. I love swords, medieval costumes, castles and ancient lifestyles. I love Celtic art and music. I love the desert. I am a vivid dreamer and many of my dreams come back to life in my novels.
