Fantasy author Murray Lindsay had me hooked at 'identical twin sisters from different mothers.' Such an original and entertaining idea. He proudly hails from the rolling prairie of Saskatchewan. He is an illustrator and graphic artistic and now also a fantasy / steam punk author.
Here are some highlights:
* His novel Home on the Strange may be the start of a series. Woot!
* Murray has a family history of speculative fiction writers
* To avoid distractions whilst writing, Murray likes to listen to nature sounds
* His selection of books to take through an interstellar portal are quite interesting
* I like his fave quote
* His wished-for superpower will make you laugh
Check out all these and more on the Fantasy Sci-Fi Network.
Murray Lindsay's debut novel is Home on the Strange.
Here's the synopsis:
Abigail Maye "Blackie" Brewster can't believe her luck—schlepping around in the summer heat as the assistant of a high-maintenance movie producer. When did her life become a mix of flat and irritating? What's a world-wandering nomad from Saskatchewan to do?
Home on the Strange is now available on sites such as iTunes, Barnes & Noble and Kobo.
Abagael Mae "Magpie” Brewster can't believe her luck—spending the summer sailing the skies in a prototype steam blimp, flying a circuit of the Western Domains, engaging in a little light espionage. What more could a University of Saskatchewan Academician desire?
Blackie's life veers in a direction that threatens to snap her mind. Magpie's light-hearted spying takes a hard and dangerous direction that threatens to snap her spirit. When the paths of these identical twins born of different mothers intersect and tangle together, their lives become a race across a rolling prairie landscape both familiar and strange.
Home on the Strange is a rootin'-tootin' daredevil tale of far-fetched fiction in a west that does not share our history.
