Today on the Speculative Fiction Cantina we are pleased to welcome writers Raquel Byrnes and James W. McAllister.
Raquel Byrnes writes across several genres including YA Steampunk, Fantasy, and Gothic Mystery. Critically acclaimed for her edge-of-your-seat stories with complex characters and heart pounding thrills, she is always looking for another adventure in which to partake. When she's not writing she can be seen geeking out over sci-fi movies, reading anything she can get her hands on, and having arguments about the television series Firefly in coffee shops. She lives in Southern California with her husband, six kids, and various reptiles.

|James W. McAllister|
My name is James Warren McAllister. I am a Registered Respiratory Therapist living near Syracuse in Central New York State. Currently I am employed in Healthcare Accreditation. I have extensive experience in both the hospital and the home care aspects of Respiratory Care, including management in both settings.
I have been interested in science fiction since reading the Lensmen Series of books by E. E. "Doc" Smith in Junior High School. TV shows like Star Trek, Battlestar Galactica, and Babylon 5 along with movies such as Robinson Crusoe on Mars and Star Wars further peaked my interest in the genre.
My first novel, The Best Laid Plans, has been selected as a Runner-Up in the 2013 MARSocial Author of the Year Competition.
