Today we welcome Suzanne and Shawn Kuhn, the “dynamic duo” behind Suzy Q For You.
I’ve always had a soft spot for the underdog. For years I’ve been frustrated that speculative fiction was not fully embraced within the CBA market. I’m delighted to see that trend is finally changing.
After 25 years of book retail ownership and management I joined the lovely SuzyQ in helping authors put their books into the hands of readers.
2. What are you most looking forward to at Realm Makers?
This is the most fun and nerd filled conference I have ever been too. The level of creativity is truly inspiring.
3. What draws you to speculative fiction?
Everything is play and is limited to the confines of one’s imagination.
4. Who is your favorite speculative fiction Hero(ine)?
Does Sharknado count? Ok, the Professor Xavier, whom I believe also taught at our venue this year, Villanova.
5. When did you know this was the conference for you?
I knew this was the conference for me when I met an accountant that was funny and saw 100 adults (term used liberally) exercise their second amendment Nerf rights and have an organized Nerf war.
6. Will you be dressing up for the conference’s Costume Dinner?
I am planning on it though I will never look as good as Scott Minor in a uniform (or Becky in a red dress for that matter).
7. Coffee or Tea?
Coffee, 4 cups a day, black.
8. What as your favorite TV show as a kid? What is it now?
