It gives us great pleasure to welcome Brenda Murphy, Megan Hart, & Fiona Zedde as the guest on Season 6, Episode 22 – Worthy of a Sheet Protector!

Brenda Murphy, Megan Hart, and Fiona Zedde join us for a hilarious unveiling of their new book of three individual novellas that are bound together, Love, Blood, and Sanctuary. The innuendos, double entendres and comedic riffs happen so fast with this episode, we could almost classify it as a “jam session!”

Mentioned in this episode:

Bio:

Brenda Murphy (she/her) writes erotic romance. You can catch her musings on writing, books, and living with wicked ADHD on her blog Writing While Distracted. She loves sideshows and tattoos and yes, those are her monkeys. When she is not loitering at her local library, she wrangles twins, one dog, and an unrepentant parrot.

Megan Hart writes books. Some of them use bad words, but most of the other words are okay. Some of them hit bestseller lists and win awards and some don’t, but that’s the way it goes. She can’t live without music, the internet, or the ocean, but she and soda have achieved an amicable uncoupling. She loathes the feeling of corduroy or velvet, and modern art leaves her cold. She writes a little bit of everything from horror to romance, though she’s best known for writing steamy fiction that sometimes makes you cry.

Fiona Zedde was born under the Jamaican sun but now makes her home in Spain. Since getting the writing bug, she’s published around thirty books and short stories, mostly about black queer romance. At this very second, she’s probably writing another book, and it has 100 percent chance of having queer romance and queer women in it. Her pseudo-healthy obsessions are French pastries, English cars, and Jamaican food.

R J Theodore (they/she) is an author, graphic designer, and all-around collector of creative endeavors. She enjoys writing about magic-infused technologies, first contact events, and bioluminescing landscapes.

Theodore’s love of fantastic storytelling developed through grabbing for anything-and-everything “unicorn” as a child, but they were subverted by tales of distant solar systems when their brother introduced them to Star Trek: The Next Generation at age seven. A few years later, Sailor Moon taught them stories can have both.
