Episode #63 – Turning Short Stories into Novels with M K Hutchins

mk hutchinsMy YA fantasy novel Drift (Tu Books, 2014) is both a Junior Library Guild Selection and a VOYA Top Shelf Honoree. My short fiction appears inOrson Scott Card’s Intergalactic Medicine Show, Podcastle, Daily Science Fiction, and elsewhere.  I studied archaeology at BYU, which gave me the opportunity to compile histories from Maya glyphs, excavate in Belize, and work as a faunal analyst. I often draw on my background in archaeology when writing. A long time Idahoan, I now live in Utah with my husband and four kiddos.

About James Duckett

James is a geeky, nerdy dude. He writes, sometimes. He blogs, sometimes. He's helpful to people, sometimes. He doesn't like to repeat himself, sometimes. He's funny... looking... always.

His hopes and aspirations of the future is to one day find a way that people will pay him while he sleeps. It is his dream job.
