Hadel Poetry Prose Arts and Storytelling

It is not surprising to admire the strokes of a famous oil painting such as Girl with a Sunshade by famous painter, Jules Bastien-Lepage that captures powerful emotions and imagery within each stroke.

However, it is also rare to find a poet with unique style of words who expresses sensitiveness, thought provoking analogies and symbolism as fellow poet and writer, Christy Birmingham.

Christy is an author and a freelance writer residing in Victoria, BC, Canada. Since Christy’s elementary days, she has been using her creative thinking and surroundings to write poems and short stories.

The most intriguing part of Christy’s written words is her acuteness to dig deep inside her mind, heart and soul from past regressions and abuses. She magnificently takes the readers to her inner most thoughts along with sharing the beauty of nature.

The Viking and the Courtesan by Shehanne Moore

An Interview with Author Shehanne Moore on Writing and the Vikings

Today seems like the perfect day for an interview about writing, publishing, and Vikings. Yes, Vikings. I just set the coffee table with two teacups and am about to pour tea for my guest, whom you might already know.

I’m speaking of author Shehanne Moore, whose blog I have followed for some time now and thoroughly enjoy reading (the hamsters that frequent her blog will be here soon). If you want to join us, I can add another teacup. Sit here with us and listen in for what promises to be a compelling chat that includes discussion of her book The Viking and the Courtesan. Did I mention Shehanne writes historical fiction? Ahem, she does, and her wonderful wit is overflowing on this sunny spring day.

Hi Shehanne! How about we start by learning more about you and your writing background?

Well, my bio will tell you I’m Scottish. I live on the banks of the beautiful River Tay. These days it’s with Mr. Shey, my two daughters have their own lives–close by though. I’d love to travel more but I get my fair share on my beloved Scottish mountains and right now I’m busy doing up the house we moved to eighteen months ago. I’ve probably wanted to be a writer since I was like… seven.. and flown that one a bit by the seat of my pants, I mean, here I am writing historical romance, when I once wrote comic strips for girls and edited a history journal…

I think it’s wonderful that you fulfilled your childhood dream of being a writer! Now you have published several books! How would you describe your latest book The Viking and the Courtesan for anyone who is not yet familiar with it?
