I am pleased to welcome M. Edward McNally to my blog. Immerse yourself in his epic fantasy that is The Sable city.
Title: The Sable City
Author: M. Edward McNally
Genre: Fantasy (Muskets & Magic)
“I bought this book on a whim, and I’m glad I did. It’s a rip-roaring mishmash of an adventure, primarily, with a large cast of fun and varied characters.” – From a review on Goodreads.
M. Edward McNally is a North Carolinian of Irish/Mexican extraction. Grew up mostly in the Midwest along the I-35 corridor (Kansas, Iowa, Minnesota), and now resides in the scrub brush surrounding Phoenix, AZ, where the scorpions and the javelinas play. Masters in English Lit from ISU and Russian/East European History from ASU, though both date from an earlier era when there was a lot of Grunge on the radio and Eddie wore entirely too much flannel, even in the summer.
What inspired you to become a writer?
Had to let the voices in my head out somehow, and I can’t draw.
Why should people read your book?
Well really, why read any book? Be entertained, step out of yourself for a moment, explore new worlds, meet new people you come to care about…actually, I kind of feel like reading a book right now…
Can you relate to any of the characters and why?
I can, because while The Sable City is in form an “Epic Fantasy,” it is not the classic Good vs. Evil sort of a story. It is about people trying to get by from day-to-day while navigating the perils of an imperfect world, so that is pretty much me, and probably all of us.
Tell your readers something personal about you?
I will eat anything, anything, with enough Tillamook cheese on it. That stuff makes me want to move to Oregon.
