Name of Your Story: Gods Who Sleep Below in a World of Pipes
A short summary of your story:
On a world made of pipes and gears, Hawk serves her tribe but seeks the underworld to return her sister to the land of the living, the lost afterlife deep within the spindly and pulsing engine world. Battling through cannibal clans, she defies the laws of her people and delves into the world of pipes below. She meets an under-dweller who becomes her guide, and they fight through the creatures and dangers of the lost pipes until finding the heart of the planet, a secret history they never expected—and an exodus for her people.
Is this your first foray into Steampunk?
No. I have written several steampunk stories for my Ragtime series, published by multiple presses, the most recent in the last issue of Tales of the Talisman, Ragtime: Roughbeast. This is my first steampunk story not set in the Ragtime Cycles and is set on a distant world, employing a lighter theme.
What other stories are you writing?
I just finished the first draft of Destroying the Tangible Illusion of Reality or Searching for Andy Kaufman, my next novel, being published by PMMP. I am finishing a story about Professor Moriarty for Maxim Jakubowski for an anthology, a story for Lamplight Journal and a story for AngleKnight Press this month.
What are your writing plans for the rest of 2015?
With the success of The Street Martyr being filmed as a major motion picture by Throughline Films, I plan to write another crime novel through a major noir publisher.
