He could hop on the one I failed to mention but would be important to have for someone travelling from town to town frequently.

It is a good podcast! It aired only last week. I enjoyed listening to it. I could not believe KK had gotten the publishers contract before Deryni Rising was finished. How cool was that.

A two minute video of the same interview can be found here.

Very fine interview segment!

Brilliant. Well worth a listen and we do get a mention.
God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.

I really enjoyed that interview! KK gave good insight about the series origins & how she got into it. Hope everyone listens to it.  BTW, I'm PO'd at Barnes & Noble bcz the local one says they don't carry the Deryni series in print anymore. Needs a letter campaign if it is all of B&N. If it's just my local one, I'll hammer at them from time to time about it.

Houndmistress, try thrift books on line. thriftbooks,com. They even have an app for your phone. I have gotten a lot from them including my copy of the Codex which I use all the time,  If they don't have the specific book you want, you can get on a wait list and they will let you know when they get one in stock Currently they have all three of the Deryni  books in paperback, They also have all of the Historeis of King Kelson and the three original Camber book and the Childe Morgen Series. Just go on their web site and search Katherine Kurtz.

is there any hope this will lead to a movie/tv series? Asimov's Foundation is on now although my understanding they deviate a lot from the book. I am finally reading the Wheel of Time series since that is coming soon- the story seems like a cross of Deryni and Lord of the Rings but I will watch it for awhile.

I can just hear the pitch: "OK, we've got a family-friendly version of Game of Thrones, but the effects costs are minimal since most of the magic is psychic. it's a win-win."

Thanks, DFK, I'll check that out!

Katherine is a judge this week at Writers of Future, so I was looking at their lists of podcasts and I re-found this interview with Katherine and I very much enjoyed listening to it for the second time. I do recommend it if you have not heard it yet.  It is podcast number 136.  I hope she has a good week at the event.

I'm listening to the podcast, and KK mentions having stuff saved that she thinks is good but might be used in the future. (I can't back up so I can't recheck my memory.) I recently heard that Raymond Chandler (noir detective writer) had pages of quips and metaphors that he typed up, and when he got a chance to use one, he'd cross it off his list and write down where it was. The one I remember is one he never got to use,

"She had a nice cool goddamnyou smile."

From the days when ethnic "jokes" were still a thing: "Too weak to lift a Scotchman's tip."

"I left her with her virtue intact, but it was a struggle. She almost won." Et cetera.

But I digress off the topic.
