Ep. 26, The Writers' Podcast
In this episode, The Writers' Podcast interviews Urban Fantasy author Brandon Ax. We discuss his work, his writing methods, why he doesn't believe in writer's block, his future plans, and a whole lot more. No, seriously, a whole lot more! ;)
Thank you, Brandon, for chatting with us! And congratulations again on winning The Chapter of Excellence Book Award in the Urban Fantasy category for ELEMENTAL (The Light Bringer Saga, Book 1)!
BRANDON AX fell in love with fantasy as child after first devouring the entire Chronicles of Narnia series. Born in New Orleans, Brandon spent most of his childhood moving from state to state across the southern part of America. Gaining a love of people and their many stories, he decided to pursue a career in writing. After years of tuning his craft he finished his first novel ELEMENTAL.
Brandon is an unapologetic geek. Beyond writing he loves to draw, paint, and sculpt fantastical creatures from clay. His movie collection is only rivaled by the number of comic books he owns and his knowledge of both could be called fanatical. His love of fantasy is lived out through the characters not only in his books but also while playing games like Elder Scrolls and World of Warcraft.
Currently living in South Carolina with his family, he spends his days dreaming up new worlds and fascinating characters. Hard at work on the third installment of the Light Bringer Saga, he enjoys the task of molding a story to its completion.

We’re S.K. Anthony and Raymond Esposito, your hosts at Writers After Dark. She writes those urban-fantasy–superhero-badass-chicks-with-a-touch-of-romance stories and he writes those dark fiction-things-that-go-bump-in-the night tales.
When it comes to writing, we don’t agree on genre, but we do agree that . . . we love stories . . . and one of the things we love most: hanging out in our mostly-sober, Writers After Dark studio and debating the merits of just about anything related to the story of life.
