A Conversation With Kevin Brennan, Part Two

This is Part 2 of Mark Paxson’s conversation with Kevin Brennan, author of the newly released (by himself) novel, Fascination. I’m reblogging this post because of something Mark says about Fascination: “In some respects, Fascination is a story that a reader who is looking for light entertainment could enjoy at the same time a reader who is looking for something deeper also could enjoy.” I’m reading Fascination now and, as with ALL of Kevin’s novels, there are layers and layers and layers to the story.

MP. It’s interesting…

      You’re welcome, Luanne! Hope you are well, too, and enjoying a bit of a hiatus. I guess I’m sort of on one, too. If it weren’t for reblogging, I wouldn’t be blogging at all 🙂
