A Rising Literary Star 
An Interview with Haven Kimmel
by Pam Kingsbury

Haven Kimmel loves shooting pool, was once accused in Sunday School of loving animals more than God, attended seminary, and is drawn to sinners. In conversation, she's gracious, funny, focused, and kind, radiating good will. In Something Rising (Light and Swift), Kimmel has created what may well be the first female protagonist who is a professional pool hustler.

The Bard of Stay More
An Interview with Donald Harington 
By Robert L. Hall

Donald Harington was strongly influenced by the summers he spent as a boy with his maternal grandparents in the Ozark Mountains in the small village of Drakes Creek.  Some years later, he wrote of a place similar to that place where he spent his childhood summers.  Drakes Creek became Stay More, where the border between fantasy and reality was blurred.
