Elizabeth Inglee Richards is today's guest and she is promoting her current release. We have an author interview with some fun questions and an excerpt from Accrocher Ses Patins (Hang'em Up). There is a tour long giveaway: 3 copies of the book and 3 hokey charm bracelets.
Tour runs from November 11, 2013- November 30, 2013. 

What book are you currently reading? Right now I am reading three books

The Abominable by Dan Simmons I picked it up because it was supposed to be about the Yeti, I’m more than two thirds of the way through and still haven’t seen a Yeti.  But it is the first book I have ever read with a Unitarian hero and since I was raised Unitarian I feel like I have to stick it out until the end even if the Yeti never shows up. 

Fire and Ash by Jonathan Maberry  This is the fourth book in the Benny Imura series.  This is a YA zombie book and is one of my favorite zombie series in a long time.  The author was local to me until recently and I have loved his work since a friend introduced me to his work (and to the author as well)

Crossing the Line by Derrick Sanderson (and a writer) Derrick Sanderson was one of the Boston Bruins in the 70’s during and after his playing years he struggled with alcohol and drugs this book chronicles his highs and lows and his recovery after hitting rock bottom.  It is nice to go into a book knowing it will have a happy ending.   

Right now, what items are on your desk that you’d be embarrassed to admit to? I have both a water color painting of Captain America’s side kick Bucky and a teddy bear celebrating the Boston Bruins Stanley cup win in 2011.  The painting is by Kate Crenshaw, who is one of my favorite fan artists/illustrators.  The teddy bear is just a teddy bear.   

Do you listen to music when you write? If so, what type(s) do you lean towards? I do listen to music when I write; right now I have been listening to quite a bit of “Celtic Punk” a lot of Dropkick Murphys and Black 47.  Sometimes I will listen to sports radio.  It kind of depends on what I am writing and where I am in the writing process.  Right now I am listening to a football game.

Who are some of your favorite authors? Some of my favorite authors are Charles deLint, Jonathan Mayberry and Holly Black.  Two authors that I still love from earlier in my life are Marry Shelly and Tove Jansson

In the nineteen twenty’s the world of Ice Hockey was changing forever, spreading south into the US markets. Two young lovers from New Brunswick were preparing to get married when the young man is offered his dream job as a goalie for a team based in Halifax. The couple has no idea what changes they are going to have to make for the team that doesn’t just wear the Hyena, they become the hyena quite literally.


“We should walk and let the men discuss business. I have been told that there is a lovely path to the water from here; we could walk on the beach.”

I didn’t feel as though it was my place to tell her that a walk along the beach in the winter was not all that pleasant. Not much was lovely in the winter. I stood and went with her; if this was what Jennot wanted, I would not ruin it for him. Marie and I walked a ways in the cold before she said anything.

“Your stitches,” she said, “so neat and tidy on the other men, but noton Jean-Mark?”

“He will not let me take my time with him,” I said with a laugh, “He wants to pretend nothing hurts him.”

She nodded as if what I said was important, “Where did you learn to stitch?”

“My father is a sail maker. I can stitch anything,” I told her. It was a source of pride for me.

“Good,” she said. She fell quiet for a few moments, and then she told me, “We can use that. The team takes care of its own. Jean-Mark will be paid and given a job for the off-season; you will be given a home in Halifax. And we will find you a home for the summer. It will be safer than this,” she said with a sweeping gesture to the sea, “My father was taken by the sea,” she added in a quiet voice.

“Jennot’s was as well,” I told her.

“Do you love him, or is he just the closest boy?” she asked me quickly. She had turned and was looking at me fiercely.
