Q & A with D.G. Kaye

Q & A with D.G. Kaye, featuring Canadian Author, Allan Hudson

Welcome to my Q & A. Today I’m thrilled to be featuring a fellow Canadian, friend and author – Allan Hudson. For those of you who aren’t familiar with Allan’s writing, he’s a multi-genred author, and I’m currently reading one of his short story books – A Box of Memories, which offers a variety of themed stories from fiction to the odd sci-fi, with one common thread – Allan is a wonderful writer of description. His characters are are richly descript, and take you right into the moment. Allan also hosts his blog – the Southbranch Scribbler, and features author promotion interviews too!

Today I have a double feature with Allan’s Book 1 of his Detective Jo Naylor series (female protagonist) – Shattered Figurine, a murder, mystery, adventure. And Allan has recently launched Book 2 in the series – Shattered Lives, and he’s sharing excerpts of both his books here today along with a bit about himself in our Q & A portion.

Now for all things Valentine’s Day, a fitness update, chocolate, roses and music in the Saturday Snippets by Carol Taylor…

Welcome to this weeks Saturday Snippets…in many ways, my favourite post of the week as I can indulge my whimsy…The healthy eating is…starting slowly……My exercise routine has kicked up a notch…I have walked 10,000 plus steps each day for 3 days on the bounce and my lazy mutt aka Saangchai has finally got his butt into gear… he lapped me last night and this morning he was waiting so I had to do 2 laps before he was happy then get him back inside the gate and then set off on my walk …as he normally walks off the lead that is fine in safe places but I would not trust taking him off lead when I walk to the market etc and he doesn’t like the lead too much …that wouldn’t work for me or him but laps around where we live in the early evening is a great exercise for him as well…I have cut his rice down so hopefully, he will lose some of the excess fat…My total steps on my morning walk were 4327(3.12)km…hopefully with my late afternoon and early evening walks it will be 4 days on the bounce…

I have been overwhelmed by the kindness of the writing community over the last weeks by invitations to join friends for a chat and I am very grateful to Amy Reade this week for interviewing me about writing and inspirations and my favourite poem from the collection. If you missed then we would love to see you over there…

I’m thrilled to host Sally Cronin this week on Reade and Write. Sally is the author of fiction, non-fiction, poetry, short stories, and an incredible wealth of blog posts where you can read about topics ranging from healthy eating to holiday customs to music and travel.
