The Shades & Shadows Podcast

We are Los Angeles's only regularly occurring genre fiction reading series. Each episode, we will introduce three authors who write the kinds of works you won't hear about anywhere else. Debuting, emerging, and established authors in the fields of horror, science fiction, fantasy, noir, and anything else that slips through the cracks, is hard to identify, or plays with the things that go bump in the night.

Welcome back to the Shades & Shadows Podcast! This episode features authors recorded live at our show in November of 2015. If this is your first time listening, please be aware that we feature content that may contain adult themes and language. We do not censor the authors who read for us.

 

 

ABOUT THE AUTHORS:

 

Stephen Jay Schwartz – Los Angeles Times Bestselling Author Stephen Jay Schwartz spent a number of years as the Director of Development for Wolfgang Petersen where he worked to develop screenplays for production.
 
His two novels, Boulevard and Beat, follow the journey of sex-addicted LAPD detective Hayden Glass.
 
Stephen was a judge for the 2012 Edgar and ITW Awards, and is currently judging the mystery-thriller section for the Los Angeles Book Prize. His work will be included in a short story collection with T.C. Boyle, to be published by Red Hen Press in 2016.

 

 

Chrome Oxide - A few years ago, because of inadequate discouragement, Chrome Oxide started writing twisted science fiction and fantasy short stories. Since he started writing he has been torturing the Orange County Science Fiction Writers Orbit by learning two bad habits for every one he fixed. He has contributed a short piece to each of their annual chapbooks since 2012. He even managed to get a short story published in volume 29 of the Writers of the Future. He so enjoys writing that even when he is recording bands in clubs he can be found with a microphone in one hand and a manuscript to be edited in the other. Because one of his first submitted stories was accepted, he has been collecting rejection slips to make up for that. Details of his career, such as it is, can be found at his author site: http://www.chromeoxide.com/writer/.

 

Romina Russell is a Los Angeles based writer, originally from Buenos Aires. As a teen, Romina landed her first writing gig, College, She Wrote, a weekly Sunday column for the Miami Herald that was later picked up for national syndication. She hasn't stopped writing since. When she's not working on the Zodiac series, she can be found producing movie trailers, taking photographs, or daydreaming about buying a new drum set. She is a Virgo to the core.
