R. Phoenix

May 12, 2017


It gives us great pleasure to announce Raissa Phoenix as the guest on Episode 111: Little Author Lemming!

This week Raissa Phoenix joins us to talk about the re-releases of her supernatural series Fate of the Fallen, her novel Too Close and the importance of education regarding domestic violence.

Follow Raissa and support her work:

Bio:

R. Phoenix (code name: Raissa) has an unhealthy fascination with contrasts: light and dark, humor and pain, heroes and villains, order and chaos. She believes love can corrupt, power can redeem and that the best of intentions can cast shadows while the worst can create light. She agrees with those who say that the truth is best told through fiction — even though fiction has to make sense while reality can be utterly baffling.

Her dark paranormal books explore a world where humanity has become prey, subjugated by “supes” — vampires, werewolves, and witches — who have seized control. They range from romance to dark erotica to horror and everything in between, exploring different aspects of the Fate of the Fallen universe. She’s even published something she calls “playful dark erotica.”

Her tendency to explore dark topics isn’t limited to a supernatural world. Her contemporary romance, Too Close, deals with the difficult topic of domestic violence. She is passionate about the need for greater awareness and understanding of an issue that’s often misunderstood.

She loves chatting with readers, though she often awkwardly rambles. No matter how much she tries to keep her bad and often perverted sense of humor in check, it seems to escape at the most inconvenient moments. (Thanks, universe.) Feel free to friend Raissa on Facebook and chat or send her an email!

It gives us great pleasure to announce Russell Ricard as the guest on episode 109: Just Keep Showing Up!

This week Russell Ricard joins us to talk about his new novel The Truth About Goodbye, moving from early script, to novel, and onward to screenplay, and the inspiration for the work.

Follow Russell and Support his work:

Bio:

Louisiana Creole, Russell was born in Baton Rouge. At eight years old, he moved to Los Angeles, California. And since 1988, he’s called New York City home.

For over three decades, he worked as an actor, singer, and dancer in regional, national tours, and international productions, including appearing on Broadway. He has a BA in Psychology from CUNY/Queens College, and earned his MFA in Creative Writing from The New School.

He’s intrigued with the psychosocial aspects of otherness: the quality or fact of being different. Therefore, his writing often includes themes of growing up; aging; family dynamics; and also romantic couplings, including how character’s race, sexual orientation, and gender inform interpersonal relationships.

His writing has appeared and/or is forthcoming on thewritelife.com, mrbellersneighborhood.com, and in Newtown Literary. His novel, The Truth About Goodbye, is available from all major book outlets.

He currently lives in Forest Hills, NY with his husband, cat, and a lovingly supportive stand up desk named Ruth.
