Some of you may have missed three  “media” pieces that I’ve participated in recently, so I thought I’d share them here.

My spot starts around the 90 minute mark.

roniepicI had the pleasure of featuring Ronie Kendig on the blog in May last year when Talon, the second instalment in the “Breed Apart” series released. Beowulf: Explosions Detective Dog, the final piece in the puzzle, has recently launched. Ronie was kind enough in her very busy schedule to answer some questions I posed her.
