Today on the Speculative Fiction Cantina we welcome writers J.S. Burke and V. R. Craft.
J.S. Burke is an author, artist, teacher, and marine biologist, studying creatures of the dark abyss and diving on coral reefs. She writes and draws the Dragon Dreamer science fantasy series, with its dragons and undersea world.
Her stories blend imagination with real science and author experiences. Living on a ship far from shore, she learned to walk with the sea. The Dragon Dreamer series grew from her years at sea, a fascination with the alien, intelligent octopuses, and a love of dragons. She lives in Georgia.
V. R. Craft
V.R. Craft always heard you should write about what you know, so she decided to write a book called Stupid Humans, drawing on her previous experience working in retail and her subsequent desire to get away from planet Earth. She has also worked in marketing, advertising, and public relations, where she found even more material for Stupid Humans. Now self-employed, she enjoys the contact sport of shopping at clearance sales, slamming on the brakes for yard sale signs, and wasting time on social media, where she finds inspiration for a sequel to Stupid Humans every day.
