Kaffee Klatch and Q&A with Lyda Morehouse

  • November 4, 2012 · 12:00 PM

Local author Lyda Morehouse has agreed to come and speak with MinnSpec. This will be an informal Q&A session with the author, plus any topics Lyda wants to discuss.

Lyda Morehouse wears a couple of different hats professionally. Under her own name, she’s an award-winning science fiction author for the LINK Angel series, a unique blend of cyberpunk and religion. Her first novel, Archangel Protocol, won the 2002 Shamus Award and the Barnes & Noble Maiden Voyage Award, and was nominated for the Romantic Times Critic’s Choice for Best Science Fiction. Her second novel, Fallen Host, made the preliminary Nebula Award ballot, and her fourth novel Apocalypse Array won the Philip K. Dick Special Citation Award for Excellence.

As Tate Hallaway she writes urban fantasy for adults (Garnet Lacey series, set in Madison, WI) and for teens (Vampire Princess of St. Paul series). Having been raised in LaCrosse, WI and currently living in St. Paul, MN means that the senses of place in these series is particularly well done, and Lyda’s humor and sense of romance come through.

When she’s not writing, meeting with her writing group the Wyrdsmiths, or spending time with her family, she occasionally teaches writing at the Loft and cartooning through Eden Prairie Community Education.

    I loved it. She was funny and wonderfully candid with her considerable expertise and experience. I learned a lot about the business of writing and the ups and downs of the publishing industry.

    Lyda was great. She certainly has a lot of valuable information to put forth on the subject of how to become a successful fiction writer.

    I will be meeting Lyda downstairs before the event. If one of the other organizers can make sure the room is open when they arrive, I would be thankful. Also, since we have a full house, I was thinking we should set the room up like a convention panel room.
