Gazing into the Crystal Ball

September 21, 2007 | Interviews

ST: We’re here with Marie Treanor ofr our last day of terrorizing her. lol. Marie, what does the future hold for you?
MT: Well, with Changeling Press, I have a short story, Swan Song coming out some time this year – about a cursed but well-endowed ballet dancer. And a short Christmas story called Christmas of the Damned.
And in the spring of next year, I’ll have a novella out with Samhain – Killing Joe
In time, I hope to find new homes for the books currently tied up in Triskelion’s bankruptcy. In the longer term, who knows? I’m just enjoying the moment and feeling good.

ST: If you had one wish that would be granted, what would it be?
MT: That my kids have happy and healthy lives. Is that two? lol.

ST: How did you and all your publishers come together?
MT: With Triskelion, I remember I liked the variety of stuff they published, and so I sent them my first stories. Then, one of my editors left Trisk to go to Samhain and later invited me to submit there, which eventually I did.
It was Kyla Logan, my loop partner, who suggested I try Changeling Press, and when the right story came to me, I did.

ST: What’s in the works for the future?
MT: Well, I’m working on a sort of gothic/fantasy/historical/paranormal story just now – not sure yet how that mix will work out! And then there’s a ghost story I’d like to finish some time. And I have an idea for a naughty comedy, which may or may not come off.

ST: I sure hope it does. Sounds like an interesting read. Thanks, Marie, for spending so much time with us. It’s been a great week and I’ve enjoyed learning more about you. The very best to you in the future and keep us posted on your future releases.
MT: Thanks, Sloane, I’ve really enjoyed being here! And of course I’d love to keep in touch. Thanks for letting me ramble!

ST: Until next week…

Happy Writing!

    Hi Marie I couldn’t get over to check out your interview until today. Great to hear that a ‘naughty comedy’ may be coming!

    Sloane, wonderful questions! Really enjoyed this other view of Marie.

    Thanks, Peggy! And yes, I think Sloane’s got a really good thing going here. Doing interviews over the week gives so much more scope. She’s a smart lady and a fab writer 🙂

    As for the naughty comedy…all I need is the time! In the mean time, it provides my husband and me with hours of amusement discussing it. I’ve started writing down what we say because I’ve lost so many great ideas already!
