Episode 1
Of Crowns & Legends with Chelsea Banning

     In our inaugural episode, we welcome Chelsea Banning, author of "Of Crowns and Legends", a next-generation Arthurian Legend. From the back cover:
"Camelot's power hangs by a thread, but no one yet knows it. Its fate is tied to the children King Arthur was never supposed to have...

Anwil and Ariadne Pendragon are twins, best friends, and yet nothing alike. While Anwil pores over books in the library, Ariadne is training to be a Knight of the Round Table. Yet they are both haunted by the same shadow: their late father, the legendary King Arthur.

It's been nearly twenty years since Arthur died in the Battle of Camlann, and peace has since prospered under the regency reign of Queen Guinevere. Camelot has grown into a bustling trading hub and Briton is flourishing. But not everyone is happy with Camelot's growing power.

When abbeys start burning and relics go missing, a war like no other looms over Camelot, and Anwil and Ariadne are forced to face the harsh realities and lies their mother has tried so hard to shield them from."
     In the course of our interview, Ms. Banning discussed her experiences in becoming a writer and the process of becoming published. She shared her advice regarding a number of topics related to writing and if you're an aspiring writer, you'll certainly come away with ideas on how to improve your workflow and overcome obstacles to getting that first story finished!
