This month’s Author Takeover comes from debut author and “Potter” enthusiast Melinda Salisbury.

This month’s Author Takeover sees Lucy Saxon, author of Take Back The Skies, discuss growing up in the world of fandom, its pitfalls and how it can change your life. Lucy wrote Take Back The Skies as part of National Novel Writing Month when she was just sixteen years old and now has a six book deal with each novel set in a different continent of her Steampunk world of Tellus.

Our first Takeover is by Robin Stevens, author of “Murder Most Unladylike”.
