With Your Hosts, The Women of Wonders
Join Cheri L. R. Taylor and her Co-Host Bethany Schrader as they talk with author R. G. Thomas about his new series of young adult fantasy romance books, starting with The Midnight Gardener.
They’ll discuss creating without limits, allowing your imagination to run amok, and writing about romance and making it real.
R. G. Thomas has been reading books from an early age. As a young gay man, however, he found very few characters with whom he could truly identify. Now that he’s an adult—or at least older than he used to be—he likes to write stories that revolve around gay characters. The Town of Superstition is his YA fantasy gay romance series that includes wizards, witches, and other magical creatures.
When he’s not writing, R. G. loves to read, go to movies, watch some TV, and putter around in the small suburban patch of ground he calls a yard. He visits his mother once a week, not just for the free cookies, and enjoys spending time with close friends drinking wine and making up ridiculous things that sometimes show up in his books. Although he hates the process of travel, he does enjoy experiencing new places. His dream trip is to one day visit the country of Greece, and he is currently saving his nickels and dimes to make that a reality.
Twenty years ago he met a man who understood and encouraged his strange, creative mind, and who made him laugh more often and more freely than anyone else. Today they still laugh often as they live in a suburb just north of Detroit with their two cats who act as both muse and distraction to him while he writes.
