In the spirit of Halloween fun, Kansas authors Lee Killough, Linda Madl, and Sheri L. McGathy discuss their fascination with the supernatural creatures, fantasy beings, and ghosts that inspired their writing. The authors will read from their works and answer questions about their writing and the things that give us all goose bumps.

Lee Killough is published in sci-fi and is known for her supernatural and urban fantasy mysteries. Linda Madl is published in historical romance and short stories, including several ghost stories. Sheri L. McGathy is published mainly in fantasy and has earned several awards for her work.

Hi all,

Remaining members of the band known as Crosswind have put together a vintage rock DVD – One More Time Reunion, if you will – with Ron, Max, Jim, Tom and Steve.

Twice Upon an Eventide is a Dream Realm Finalist

Hi all, I found out late last night that "Twice Upon an Eventide" is a DRA (Dream Realm) 2008 finalist in the Anthology category.

I'm feeling rather overwhelmed yet very happy! This little duet, which has failed to garner many reviews has been very well received in competition, and for that, I am very thankful.

Anyway, that's the news! Fingers crossed Shannah and I do well in the next stage!
