Meet The Author: Darin Calhoun

Darin Calhoun is an independent author sailing the genre seas, with the island of urban fantasy as his current home. Be warned, he writes about strong women and flawed characters. So, if you don't like these personalities in your protagonist, you'll be abundantly disappointed. However, if that's the way you enjoy your heroes, read on.

Darin admits to posting on Twitter or Facebook at 3AM, but blames it on an abusive muse. Some writers' muses give them a gentle tap on the shoulder; his, he explained, uses a sledgehammer.

The latest story his muse knocked out of his brain is about Gina Madonna. Gina is a former Los Angeles newspaper crime reporter who finds herself unemployed, dumped by her fiancé, and having to crash at her best friend's apartment in Hollywood while she picks up the remnants of her life. In desperation, she accepts a job interview as a personal assistant to Mr. Green, and she becomes caught up in a mysterious world filled with dark intrigue and magic that may lead to her demise.

Darin was kind enough to share a link to Gina Madonna and the Falling Man:

As Darin said above, he is on Twitter and Facebook at all hours of the day and night, interacting with readers, authors, and friends.
