The magnificent Melissa Maygrove is at it again! It’s time for (the tail end of) Follow Fest 2014. Her organizational abilities and social savvy never cease to amaze me. If you haven’t checked her out, you should. And then join Follow Fest!
Follow Fest allows writers connect with each other through blogs and other social media.
Name: Loni Townsend
Fiction or nonfiction? Fiction
What genres do you write? Fantasy, though I seem to be delving into horror lately.
Are you published? Yes! Thanmir War is available on Amazon.
Do you do anything in addition to writing? That might be helpful to other authors? Probably not. I dabble in all things, including web design, e-book formatting, and photography.
I’m a computer programmer by trade, but I love front-end web design, so simple things like clean HTML or clever CSS makes me tingle. I’m also one of those weirdos who hates using WYSIWYG (pronounced wizzywig, stands for what-you-see-is-what-you-get) content editors. I prefer typing out my tags by hand.
Tell us a little about yourself. I’m a squirrel with blue hair and an addiction to Red Bull. When I’m not reigning terror on my children or tormenting my husband with more house projects, you can find me writing, coding, drawing, dancing, exercising, analyzing music with my buddy, or taking photos.
Speaking of which, today’s featured photo is abstract bubbles!
And now, back to Follow Fest.
Which authors influenced you the most? Terry Brooks took my imagination on an adventure when I was younger, and Diana Gabaldon fueled my love for characters.

Do you have a newsletter? Nope. I can’t even remember to take my vitamins daily. A newsletter is beyond me.
Is there anything else you’d like us to know? I’ve just revised my novella (25K) called This World Bites—humor fantasy. I’d love for a couple of beta readers to see if I’ve cleared up some of the issues other betas discovered.
That’s it for me. What about you? Are you participating in Follow Fest?
