Interviewed…”Creating a Unique Take on Dragons: Meet Marx Pyle”

A big thanks to author Lynn Slaughter for interviewing me on her blog! I chat all about Dragons of a Different Tail and Obsidian Monsters. https://lynnslaughter.com/2021/12/31/creating-a-unique-take-on-dragons-meet-marx-pyle/

Can you talk a bit about your background as a writer?

I’ve always wanted to write, and as a kid I dreamed of writing my own comic books. No comic books yet, but I have written films and web series. I graduated from film school over ten years ago, so most of my writing had been with scripts. I’ve also done nearly every job there is in film (script writer, director, producer, fight choreographer, boom operator, director of photography…), and those have been amazing creative experiences. However, I’ve always wanted to write novels, and the MFA program helped me develop my fiction writing skills.

Guest On… Dragon Con Urban Fantasy Track Supernatural Rewind Season 9

Had a great time being a panelist on another edition of Dragon Con Urban Fantasy Track Supernatural Rewind. This time we discuss season 9! We talk Dorothy, the Wicked Witch, the always fun Charlie (Felicia Day), Cass’s ever changing angel status, “Doctor Dean Dolittle” talking to dogs, the vicious angel war, Abaddon versus Crowley, more Men of Letters fun, the dangerous Cain (played by the amazing Timothy Omundson), master manipulator Metatron, the shifting alliances of Gadreel, the Bloodlines backdoor pilot, other episodes we thought could have been a spin-off, and more. Plus, was Sam being a complete jerk to Dean this season or did Dean cross a line in how he saved Sam’s life?

Release Day! DRAGONS OF A DIFFERENT TAIL

It’s dragon week!!!

Today our anthology, “Dragons of a Different Tail: 17 Unusual Dragon Tales,” was released in ebook format. Click this link to find it at your favorite online store – https://books2read.com/dragonstail

In the next couple of weeks, the paperback version will also be available. So watch for that to pop up on Amazon or Barnes & Noble if print is more your jam.

I am very proud of the great stories in this anthology and want to thank all of the authors for taking a chance on my slightly unusual project.

“Eighteen award-winning, veteran, and emerging authors bring you seventeen unique dragon tales that defy tradition. Winged serpents as large as continents, as well as those tiny enough to perch on the fingertip of a young girl. Dragons who inhabit the Wild West, Victorian London, Brooklyn, and a post-apocalyptic Earth. Scaly beasts who fight in the boxing ring, celebrate Christmas, and conquer the vast void of outer space. There are rockstars who meddle with dragon magic, clever and conniving shapeshifters, and powerfully exotic hybrids. Science fiction, urban fantasy, mystery, western, epic fantasy, YA fantasy…no matter the setting or the genre—here be dragons!”
