Magical History Panel at the 2018 Tucson Festival of books

March 14th, 2018

Join Gail Carriger, Beth Cato and Mindy Tarquini, all wonderful authors of novels filled with wonderous magic and mystery as they discuss their points of view on alternative earth histories where magic, the paranormal or time travel are real.

“Why use magic at all?”

“How d you know there wasn’t vampires and werewolves running around Victorian England?”

“I want to write about airships!”

"And that is Steampunk ladies and gentlemen!"

"...love steampunk and make it their own!"

 

This panel was moderated by our friend David Lee Summers!

Raised by traditional people in a modern world, Mindy Tarquini is a second-generation Italian American who grew up believing dreams are prophecy, the devil steals lost objects, and an awkward glance can invite the evil eye.

She’s served as assistant editor with the Lascaux Review, also Spinetingler Magazine, and is a member of the Perley Station Writers’ Colony. Her work has won recognition from the Philadelphia City Paper, the Maui Writer’s Conference, and the Oklahoma Writer’s Federation.

A native Philadelphian, Mindy packed up her pizza stone and westward-ho’d. She now resides in Phoenix, where she divides her time between writing and wrestling with her pasta maker.

Mindy loves writing heroines with special powers. Alas, she has none herself. Find out more at her Amazon writers page at https://www.amazon.com/Mindy-Tarquini/e/B01DHO8THG/ref=sr_tc_2_0?qid=1520798670&sr=1-2-ent
