#Sugar4SPICE #AuthorSpotlight – Harley Easton

Harley Easton

Tell us your name and then a bit about yourself.

Harley Easton – I’m a midwestern woman who has done a little bit of everything. I tend to write short stories. Everything has a healthy dose of romance, but sometimes I venture into paranormal romance, erotica, romantic horror, or fairy tale spin offs.

Where is your favorite place to write and what food must be present?

I have an office where I usually do work. It sounds strange, but I must have a cup of ice with me.

What are you favorite things about attending signings?

I love meeting people. New readers and new authors are always fun to chat with. I end up connecting with so many after the event and making good friendships.

What author would you love to meet (Who is your unicorn author)?

I was lucky enough to meet Neil Gaiman and Molly Harper who were both previously on my list. Now, I’d love to spend a long conversation with Jim Butcher or Mercedes Lackey.

What author would you love to write with?

Other than the ones on my unicorn list? I think Sarah Addison Allen and I would write a really cool book together because I really get into the rich Southern magical-realism feel she has in her books. I’d also love to work with Marissa Meyer because that woman transforms fairy tales like a master.

What is your favorite memory so far as an author?

My father telling me he’s proud of me and my mother asking to read one of my books. I’ve been blessed with a very supportive and close-knit family. Their praise made me cry.

#Sugar4Spice #AuthorSpotlight – Dewhitt L. Bingham

Tell us your name and then a bit about yourself.

Dewhitt L. Bingham
I’m Dewhitt L. Bingham and I write non-fiction with a focus on civil rights, social injustice, segregation, policing and promoting racial harmony. I’m originally from Festus, Missouri but I’ve in Bloomington Illinois for the past 35 years. I’ve Been a Probation Officer for 32 years and an Adjunct Professor for 23 years. I’ve only been writing for about three years. My first piece was police related and has a spiritual flavor. My second piece is about the great Viola Liuzzo, the only white woman murdered during the Civil Rights march with Dr. King from Selma to Montgomery. My third piece will be complete in a couple of months. It is about Douglass the Negro school (my grandfather was in the first graduating class of 5 in 1940) in Festus (which is 95% white) and how progressive Festus was in 1954 after the Brown Supreme Court Decision. Looking forward to meeting all the authors and learning from them. God Bless! Dewhitt

#Sugar4SPICE #AuthorSpotlight – Tabi Slick

Tabi Slick

Tell us your name and then a bit about yourself.

Tabi Slick is an award-winning author of Paranormal, Historical, and Urban Fantasy. Her younger years were spent living in the countryside of Oklahoma until she started her studies in Puerto Rico. After several years abroad, she finally settled down in the Dallas-Fort Worth area of Texas. With a background in Linguistics, she’s often found either researching or with her nose stuck in a book. She’s not only the wife of a systems engineer, and mother to a beautiful German Shepherd and Rhodesian Ridgeback pup, but she’s also a blogger and book ninja.

Where is your favorite place to write and what food must be present?

I write either in my office or at our pool table that converts to a dining table. I’m not super picky about my food while I’m working, but chocolate and coffee are usually the main food groups.

What are you favorite things about attending signings?

My favorite part about attending signings would have to be getting to know new readers and getting book recommendations. These are the best places to fill up my TBR list!

What author would you love to meet (Who is your unicorn author)?

I would love to meet Robert Ludlum, author of the Bourne trilogy and many other amazing thriller novels.

What is your favorite memory so far as an author?

I was on my way back home from a book signing that hadn’t quite gone as planned. on the plane I was sitting next to a young girl who, after finding out I was an author, proceeded to gleefully exclaim “You’re an author? I can’t believe I’m meeting a famous author!” I tried to tell her I wasn’t that famous, but she insisted I must be if I’m an author. There are so many highs and lows as an author, but meeting young people who love to read makes it all worth it.
