Mel Todd and Puppet Master on Podcast Episode 188

This is the Books and Authors Fantasy and Sci-Fi Podcast Episode 188 with author Mel Todd.

Welcome to the latest episode of the Books and Authors Fantasy and Sci-Fi Podcast! Co-hosted by Jamie Davis and Scott Walker, this podcast is exactly what the title says it is: a show focused on SF&F books and the authors creating them!

We’ll cover Epic Fantasy, Urban Fantasy, Sword & Sorcery, and everything in between. Expect to find the best and brightest authors from all corners of the SF&F book world. Plus, we’ll add in a few other very special guests as well along the way.

Our guest this week is author Mel Todd.

Mel currently resides in Georgia with three cats – who tolerate her. She writes her own version of Urban Science Fiction. If you’re looking for science, aliens, invasions, explosions, and maybe a touch of magic in some series, you’ve found the right author.

She fully admits to being weird, after all she writes about aliens and knows how to milk goats. If you want to talk books, she’ll talk all day long, but admits she hasn’t had time to watch much TV in the last three years, the price of a writing addiction.

Mel is one of ten authors writing in the Delta Underground Operatives shared world, and her upcoming novel, Puppet Master, is the next book to launch in the DUO world. Buy/read her novel and learn more about the DUO project at the official DUO Facebook Page!
