Staying True to Your Creativity with Mike Payne
Manage episode 355268981 series 3391468
Fulfilling Your Artistic Sensibilities, Being Ready for Opportunity, and Finding Your Critique Tribe...
In this episode, we interviewed speculative fiction author Michael H. Payne, who has spent most of his 30+ year career writing stories about talking animals. He came up through the trenches of traditional publishing, but stuck to his creative dreams and found success with short stories in an anthology with Neal Shusterman. The anthology launched to the New York Times Bestsellers list at number 8!
Michael H. Payne's novels have been published by Tor Books, Sofawolf Press, and his own "Hey, Your Nose is On Fire" Industries. His short stories have appeared in Asimov's Science Fiction magazine, the Sword & Sorceress anthologies, and numerous small-press zines and websites, and he hosts a two-hour radio program every Sunday afternoon from 4 till 6 on KUCI, 88.9FM, in Irvine, CA.
