Today on Keystroke Medium we have a special interview with YA fantasy author Juliana Spink Mills. She shares her love of storytelling and learning new things with show hosts Josh Hayes and Scott Moon. Born in London, and growing up in Brazil... she grew up bilingual and bicultural.
This, we all agree, is a great foundation for writing.
Juliana also shares insights into her novel, Heartblade, and what it is like to write YA novels versus short stories. While researching and planning Heartblade, Juliana researched sword fighting and actually joined a local sword fighting group (where she still trains regularly). Scott was searching for where to learn the “knightly arts” and purchase a training sword even before the show ended.
Everyone at Keystroke Medium would like to give a big thank you to the live chat regulars. Thanks! You are fantastic and we love your questions. (We hope you keep coming back for more.)

What is Live?
Have you ever been part of those intense conversations about books that are, quite honestly, a little awkward for your friends who haven't read a book since high school? Did you think, of course Daenerys Tagaryen will walk through fire and tame a dragon? After years of talking to each other about what make stories great, Scott and Josh wanted to expand their knowledge and share what they learned with the world!
