Inspiration for All: An Interview with Brandon Goode

Brandon Goode Interview

I had the pleasure of coming across a new LGBT fantasy author on Twitter and I just knew that we would have an interesting conversation. Brandon Goode released his debut novel, The Secrets of Eden, about a week prior to our interview. As a new author in the fantasy genre myself, I knew we would have some things in common.

In this episode of The Read on YouTube, we talk about his interests in journalism and how that got transferred into writing his novel. We also expressed similarities in critically breaking down the characters of reality shows and how that helps us as writers. However, what I thought was most potent, was his passion for inspiring others to go for their dreams.

Watch the interview below and get acquainted with your new favorite author!

Larry Benjamin: The Art of Words

Larry Benjamin

Last week, I interviewed Larry Benjamin, author of What Binds UsUnbroken, and most recently, Vampire Rising. He spoke about writing as a way to make some money during a rough time, the line between reality and fiction in his semi-autobiographical novel, and the message of the effects of prejudice and fetishizing any particular group of people. He also discussed the importance of diversity and inclusion, which is fitting because just two days ago, we saw that idea echoed with the Oscar for Best Picture going to Moonlight.

However, what I found most interesting in this interview was his story of finding love, culminating in marriage that was spurred on by an unexpected call from friends about the passage of marriage equality in PA.

Watch the interview below.
