Pod: Just One More Page…
With Elle E. Ire, Riley Scott, Meredith Doench, and M.B. Austin:
February 18, 2022 @ 6:05 pm – 7:05 pm EST
Suspense isn’t just for thrillers and mysteries. It’s the element that keeps readers of all genres on the edge of their seats and makes them say, “Just one more page.” Join the Feisty FOES—a group of multi-genre WLW authors (Elle E. Ire, Riley Scott, Meredith Doench, and MB Austin)—to discuss the art of building suspense in every genre from mystery to romance, thriller to sci-fi, and everything in between. While their works may differ in content and style, these four authors share more commonalities than differences when it comes to writing intriguing fiction, and they know the secrets to engaging readers require antici……pation.
MB Austin’s contemporary thrillers feature Maji Rios, a counter-terrorism covert operator whose work intrudes on every vacation she attempts. Someday she’ll get both downtime and the woman of her dreams. MB Austin herself vacations in a past that never was, within a questionably utopian (but unquestionably genderqueer) 1850s Mediterranean, the Trencadis universe. Look for Blursday’s Revenge, a darkly funny mid-pandemic mystery that asks: murder, or Darwin award?, from Bywater Books in Fall 2022.

She is a board member of Mystery Writers of America, Midwest Chapter, and is a senior lecturer of creative writing, literature, and composition at the University of Dayton in Ohio.

Elle E. Ire writes science fiction and paranormal romance featuring kickass women who fall in love with each other. Her novels include: VICIOUS CIRCLE, the STORM FRONTS trilogy, DEAD WOMAN’S POND, and REEL TO REAL LOVE, all from DSP Publications. Elle enjoys getting into her characters’ minds by taking shooting lessons, participating in interactive theatrical experiences, paying to be kidnapped “just for the feel of it,” and attempting numerous escape rooms.
