20 Minutes with Shanna Germain


Shanna Germain is an astonishing creator. In addition to her work as Lead Editor for Monte Cook Games (including Numenra and the NOW KICKSTARTING “No Thank You, Evil“), she has distinguished herself as an author (contributing hundreds of stories for anthologies and publications), an anthology editor (NSFW: “Geek Love: An Anthology of Full Frontal Nerdity“), an innovative leader and a refreshing voice in the speculative fiction and erotica communities.

I’m delighted to have another remarkable creator, Christiana Ellis, as my co-host and together we launch into 20(ish) minutes of writerly discourse with Shanna, exploring how she develops her (marvelous) characters, the impact of “genre” on writers, embracing diversity and sexuality in fiction, and more (and Shanna’s Workshop Episode is EPIC!).

Keeping up with Shanna (no small feat)…

  • Her website is an astonishing window into what she’s doing and what’s on her mind
  • Peruse the wonders at Monte Cook Games
  • Acknowledging that the canon of her work is largely erotica, I recommend you browse the literary delights of her Amazon Page
  • And, of course, there’s always the marvel of Facebook and Twitter

Christiana’s creations are marvelous things…
