Sheldon Eskin interviews Thomas M. Hewlett about his new book, One Death At A Time. Thomas grew up in Los Angeles and was raised on a steady diet of science fiction, fantasy, and all things mythic or paranormal. While he knew he wanted to be a writer at the age of twelve, after college he strayed from the path and into drugs and alcohol addiction. Hewlett had his first drink when he was seventeen and blacked out shortly after finishing it. He woke up thirteen years later, with little to show for his life besides a notebook full of unwritten books. Finally, in 2011 he hit rock bottom and ended in up in a rehab facility. It was there, at his lowest point that he rediscovered the power of writing and found the idea for his first novel, One Death at a Time, when a good friend suggested he write a story about “vampires in AA”. With the encouragement and support of his loving wife, he decided to combine his experiences of addiction/recovery with his love of modern fantasy and noir mystery.
Sheldon Eskin interviews artist and designer Kathleen Werner. Kathleen is an artist, visionary and entrepreneur. In her early twenties, Kathleen owned a metaphysical shop and a fine art gallery.
