Welcome to this week’s Superversive Sunday Spotlight. Every week we will chat with a Superversive author that you really should be reading.
This week we welcome Superversive author, Lori Janeski:
How long have you been writing?
Amateur only (fanfics, stuff that hasn’t seen the light of day and probably never will)? 15 years. Actual published stuff? About five years.
Which writers inspire you?
The first one who did was Mary Higgins Clark. I always wanted to write a mystery story that would make someone reading it say, “I have to stay up all night to finish this book, I can’t put it down,” the way I read her stuff back in fifth grade.
So, what have you written?
Short stories: “Much Madness Is Divinest Sense” https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B08462M5W8
“Saturday’s Children” https://libertyislandmag.com/?p=1&ln=saturdayschildren&c=1
“Rangers vs. Aliens” https://libertyislandmag.com/?p=1&ln=rangersvsaliens&c=1
–Novel: The Carter Files: Phoenix (Book 1) https://www.amazon.com/Phoenix-Carter-Files-Book-1-ebook/dp/B086C2LTF7
What draws you to Superversive writing?
Stories can be good stories without having to check all of someone’s stupid little requirement boxes. With the world the way it is, I’m with Tolkien when he said to escape.
What are you working on at the minute?
Book Two of the Carter Files, also some entertaining Star Trek fanfic, for my own amusement.
Do you read much and if so who are your favorite authors?
Not as much as I used to, thanks to the Munchkin. Favorites are still David Weber, David Eddings, Jane Austen, Elizabeth Gaskell, Tom Clancy, lots more that would take too long to name.
How can readers discover more about you and your work?
Thanks for sharing Lori. Be sure to check out Lori’s books and be sure to check back next Sunday for our next chat with a Superversive author.
