Today on Paws4Thought I talk to Dave Higgins who not only wrote two of the stories in Fauxpocalyse, but is also one of the editors and the overall publisher of the anthology (for which we are eternally grateful).

Tell us a little bit about yourself Dave.

 I live in a flat full of books with my wife and two cats.

I spent many years working in law, interspersed with business analysis; whether I got the jobs because I have an unusual perspective or have an unusual perspective because of the jobs I am unsure.

While I was at university I used to write poetry and the occasional short story, but gave it up due to pressure of work. When the firm I was with closed a few years ago I found myself writing fiction again, so the decades of rhetoric and fine drafting are still getting use.

  You…

Today at Paws4Thought I welcome Fauxpocalypse author Schevus Osbourne. Tell us a little bit about yourself Schevus.

I am a 28 year old software developer by day. I served in the Air Force for four years, which gave me an easy springboard into my career field, even though I wasn’t (and still am not) finished with my four year degree. Given my recent interest and moderate levels of success with fiction writing, I don’t know if that degree is ever going to get finished. I would love to be able to transition into writing as my career, even if some of it has to be more mundane work than fiction writing.

I like reading, traveling, board games, backpacking/hiking, and scuba diving to name a few things. I have been to all 50 US states and several countries so far, with a near infinite list of destinations I want to…

Today I’m happy to welcome Fauxpocalypse contributor Kate I. Foley. Tell us a little bit about yourself.

 Well, I’m a homeschooled thirteen-year-old, I love to write and read, I’m obsessed with all things mystical (most of which includes Harry Potter somehow), I sometimes overuse emoticons, and I love chocolate and peanut butter. Seriously, whoever invented the Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup is a genius. A little fun fact: the “I” in Kate I. Foley stands for Isabel, which actually isn’t my legal middle name. Yet. 😉

Tell us about your story in Fauxpocalypse. How did you come up with the idea?

My story is about a girl named Natalie who firmly believes (well, for the most part) that the world is not going…

Introducing Matt Blashill

Check out my interview for my story in the Fauxpocalypse anthology. It’s silly and insightful and everything in between. Or, maybe it’s just silly.

Today we welcome Matt Blashill. Tell us a little bit about yourself Matt.

I live in Southern California.  Next question…

What?  You asked for “a little bit.”  Okay, okay, so I’m silly.  I blame my dad for that.  Or, is it that I have him to thank for it?

I studied psychology in college. I thought I was going to study ecology, behavior, and evolution, but then found out it was going to take a lot of work and a lot of memorization to be anything like Steve Irwin.  And for some reason, studying people was a lot less work.  Or, maybe it just came to me more naturally.  Perhaps it was simply because all the psych tests were essays and I’ve never had a problem putting words together.

After college I got lost in my 9 – 5 job for a while. Then I remembered a story I had…

An Interview with Alexandrina Brant

A bit more about Fauxpocalypse and a bit about Quidditch too. Now you definitely want to click on over and check it out, don’t you?

Paws4Thought

Welcome Alexandrina. Can you tell us a little bit about yourself?

I’m eighteen, a student of Psychology and Philosophy (which means I alternate between writing lab reports and dismantling arguments), and will be officially confirmed as a Catholic in July. Non-academically, my interests range from Italian culture and good wine to astronomy and temporal paradoxes the like seen in Doctor Who and Back to the Future. And I’m dreadfully English, in case that wasn’t obvious. Some of my favourite authors include Lewis Carroll, Agatha Christie, and Lemony Snicket.

Tell us about your story in Fauxpocalypse. How did you come up with the idea?

My story, Revelation, finds an orphaned student of Oxford University making a last-minute prayer deal in a chaplaincy; if God saves them, they’ll become a Catholic. When the comet soars over the chaplaincy, the student must face the intellectual consequences of their wishful thinking, and consider…
