Check out this post from the PBS blog introducing author Trish Hubschman.
Today, I’d like to welcome Trish Hubschman. Welcome to The PBS Blog! Let’s get started.
What is your name and where are you from?
I’m Trish Hubschman. I live on Long Island, NY.
What was your childhood dream?
Since sixth grade, 40 plus years ago, I wanted to be a published author.
Awesome. What skill would you like to master?
I’m not very good at navigating websites and blogs. That seems important in this business. I have to learn how to get around them better.
No worries. If you have the means, you can pay someone to do that for you ;-). Trish, what’s your favorite food?
Same as everyone else’s – – pizza and cheeseburgers.
Ha! Pizza is my husband’s fav. Let’s talk about writing a bit. When did you publish your first book? What was that like?

My enormous thanks to Ben Cameron at Cameron Publicity for sending me a copy of Reprobation by Catherine Fearns in return for an honest review.
Are you one of the elect?
Dr. Helen Hope is a lecturer in eschatology – the study of death, judgement, and the destiny of humankind. She is also a Calvinist nun, her life devoted to atoning for a secret crime.
When a body is found crucified on a Liverpool beach, she forms an unlikely alliance with suspect Mikko Kristensen, lead guitarist in death metal band Total Depravity. Together, they go on the trail of a rogue geneticist who they believe holds the key – not just to the murder, but to something much darker.
Also on the trail is cynical Scouse detective Darren Swift. In his first murder case, he…

- My Rating: Hell Yeah Book Review.
My name’s Griz. I’ve never been to school, I’ve never had friends, in my whole life I’ve not met enough people to play a game of football. My parents told me how crowded the world used to be, before all the people went away, but we were never lonely on our remote island. We had each other, and our dogs.
Then the thief came.
He told stories of the deserted towns and cities beyond our horizons. I liked him – until I woke to find he had stolen my dog. So I chased him out into the ruins of the world.
I just want to get my dog back, but I found more than I ever imagined was possible. More about…

I’ve been writing stories since my earliest memories: my first masterpiece was two pages of foolscap – with illustrations – about a television programme of the time, and contained more uses of the word “then” than any other. I’d like to think I’ve improved just a little since then; after…

Check out this post from Esther Chilton’s blog featuring author Geoff Le Pard.
This week’s Guest Writer is the fabulous Geoff Le Pard. Geoff has written several books, including novels, a memoir and short story collections. He has another entertaining collection of short stories coming out at the end of the month – Life in a Conversation, which is available to pre-order now. You’ll find a brilliant story from the collection below.
The Wisdom Of The Ages
Geoff Le Pard
The Frngg are
an unsuperstitious race, generally, except when it comes to the formalities and
procedures around dying. The one thing the Frngg are insistent upon is that
none of the accumulated wisdom of their people shall be wasted. If someone
knows which berries taste good and which turn your earlobes purple then they
want this passed down. One day someone will invent the biro and the ring binder
but until then the deathbed transfer will have to do.
