We will be doing podcasts, and guest posts/interviews on this blog for the foreseeable future. Doing the Youtube channel videos became such a hassle it wasn’t worth the trouble. We may bring all that back in 2021 if we can get more time to pursue those projects.

Sign up below if you want to be hosted for a guest post/interview.

Writer Groupie will host author Melodie Romeo on the blog on November 26th. You may know Melodie from her books, or maybe you know her from her location (Mississippi has great authors!) .

Here is her bio from Amazon. Y’all check it out!

Melodie Romeo is a native of Vicksburg, Mississippi. She earned a bachelor’s degree in Music Education from the University of Southern Mississippi and a master’s degree in History from the University of West Florida. Ms. Romeo is a retired school teacher who currently travels the country as an over the road truck driver with Prime, Inc. Her first book, Vlad a Novel, (https://www.facebook.com/VladANovel) a historical thriller, was published in 2002. She has short stories published in anthologies by Seventh Star Press, Charon Coin Press, Alban Lake Press, and Less Than Three Press.

She has a son, Peter, and a daughter, Michele who both serve in the US Army, a daughter-in-law, Jessica, and grandsons, Mark and Asher. She resides in Utica, MS with her longtime partner, Johanna.

Melodie is also a musician who plays the French horn, composes, and has spent many years as a choral or instrumental director. She aspires to be a successful enough author to quit driving and devote herself to writing full-time.

Interview with Cecilia Aragon, co-author of Writers in the Secret Garden

Recently, I had the great pleasure of speaking with Ms. Aragon about her co-authoring experience with Katie Davis on a book about how fanfiction has helped shape young lives. See the PODCAST LINK at the bottom of this page.

Fanfiction, Youth, and New Forms of Mentoring

Cecelia has co-authored with Katie Davis, a book said to be ” An in-depth exploration of the unexpected ways young people learn from writing fanfiction online. “

About the Book

writers in the secret garden

Over the past twenty years, amateur fanfiction writers have published an astonishing amount of fiction in online repositories. More than 1.5 million enthusiastic fanfiction writers–primarily young people in their teens and twenties–have contributed nearly seven million stories and more than 176 million reviews to a single online site, Fanfiction.net. In this book, Cecilia Aragon and Katie Davis offer a detailed examination of fanfiction writers and fanfiction repositories, finding that these sites are not shallow agglomerations and regurgitation of pop culture but rather online spaces for sophisticated and informal learning. Through their participation in online fanfiction communities, young people find ways to support and learn from one another.

Cecilia Aragon, author of Writers in the Secret Garden

About the Author

Cecilia Aragon is Professor in the Department of Human-Centered Design and Engineering at the University of Washington, where she is also a Senior Data Science Fellow at the eScience Institute.

Interview with Keita Nagano, author of The Sea of Japan

Keita Nagano

Recently, I had the great pleasure of speaking with the author of The Sea of Japan, Keita Nagano. You will certainly enjoy this audio only version of my chat with Keita, and learn a bit about his writing style.

About the book

When thirty-year-old Lindsey, an English teacher in Japan who’s been assigned to a tiny fishing town, is saved from drowning by a local young fisherman, she’s drawn into a battle with a neighboring town that has high stakes for everyone—especially her.


As their efforts to save their town backfire, Hime gets closer to falling
apart—putting Lindsey’s friends, her budding relationship with Ichiro, and her career in jeopardy. To save Hime, Lindsey realizes she’ll have to become a true American fisherwoman and fight for her new home with everything she has.
