Get To Know—Steven A. McKay

A couple of weeks ago, Steven A. McKay did an interview of me for his readers, and I found out that I inadvertently used Steven’s home town in my books. (You can read that interview HERE: ) Being a good natured sort, he let that slide because I’m sure his home is far nicer than what I wrote in my books. Today I get to ask him the same questions. And, Steven is offering anyone who asks for it, an exclusive, fans only short story. Read through to the end for details. Welcome Steven!. Since this is your first time to the blog, tell the audience a bit about yourself.  I’m from the outskirts of Glasgow, Scotland and I write mostly …

Running The Bases—Author Interviews
