Inside The Minds Of Authors

Jun 25, 2024

Happy Monday, Fabulous Listener!

Welcome to Inside the Minds of Authors. Summer is here and we have amazing authors to enjoy the season. This evening, we have the pleasure of having a fabulous author duo, M.M. Downing & Sandra Waugh, with us. We are discussing their great Middle Grade trilogy, The Adventures of the Flash Gang.

Sandra Waugh is the author of Lark Rising and Silver Eve, books 1 & 2 in the Guardians of Tarnec series published by Random House. Prior to taking up the pen, Sandra was an actress, most notably a co-founder and one-time artistic director of Echo Repertory, a not-for-profit women’s theater company based in New York City. She holds a B.A. in English from Bryn Mawr College, a black belt in Nia and 500-hour yoga teacher certification, the latter two she sometimes teaches when not writing. Sandra lives in rural Connecticut with her husband.

Melanie Murray Downing, writing as M.M. Downing, is a freelance editor and author who has been previously published at Harlequin and HarperTeen (under the pseudonym Claire Ray.) She has a B.F.A. from New York University and worked for six years at Warner Books and Grand Central Publishing. She lives in New Jersey.
