Flash! Future: Meet & Greet II

WELCOME to another special edition of Flash! Future! Rounding out our Sunday tradition of featuring writers from around the world, this is our second of two posts specifically highlighting Fire&Ice writers. (Note that once we close up shop, all Flash! Future posts and interviews, like your stories, will remain accessible in our archives: just look for the corresponding link in the sidebar after December 21.)

It’s a privilege today to (officially) introduce to you two writers whose names you doubtless already know from their consistent & memorable tales, as well as their set of Honorable Mentions: TadK and Jethro Weyman.  Welcome to the mic, O Ye Writers! Take it away. 


 Name: Tad Kelson (TadK/Gamerwriter)

Tell us something about yourself!  

I’m a longtime gamer, sometime writer in his mid 50s, married, Vet, administrative and paperwork sort of fellow. I’ve been writing on and off for a good 30-some years.

Tell us, what’s 2020 been like for you?

2020 has been interesting. Have spent most of it working from home, dealing with some household and family challenges, and of course, the pandemic.

Could you share some of your personal hopes and goals for 2021? Anything to share with the F&I community?

Planning to finish up two WIP, get my Patreon back up and running, and work on personal stuff like weight and debt. About it for 2021 for goals—that is enough to start with right? To the others in Fire&Ice: What a great array of writing and talent. As of Sol 13 I have one mention, which is way more than I anticipated. So keep on writing all ya all.

Tell us about your published life! 

I have one self-published novella on Amazon titled Red Hollows. It is a spin on Little Red Riding Hood, from the perspective of her son and the now-undead wolf of the original tale. Portal Fiction in nature and a couple of sequels planned, never written.

Where can we find you and your work?

Name: Jethro Weyman

Tell us something about yourself!

I’m a neuro-specialist physiotherapist managing a small five-person team in the NHS in Birmingham (UK). I try to make the most of the outdoors, either on foot or on my bike but… lockdown. I do a bit of bouldering and very occasional yoga. Oh yeah, and I write books!

How has 2020 been for you?

2020 has been very busy… I went to Brazil just before lockdown, started the new job (extra challenging with COVID!), bought and moved into my new house and tried my hand at being a film extra… so basically, not enough writing!

What are your hopes & goals for the coming year? Any comments for the Fire&Ice community?

I would love to have one of my full-length novels out in 2021 (come on, agents!) as well as get my screenwriting projects in front of the right people.

Joining in with Flash!Friday has been a great experience too… I hope it returns! There’s so much talent in this group and it’s amazing to see such variety in interpretation.

Tell us a little something about your published work!

Bang to Begin is a series of interconnected short stories of a number of different genres, from sci-fi-horror to fantasy-suspense. It has been described as ‘a bit like Black Mirror,’ but mostly, it’s a dark and twisty look at the human perception of fate – hence the tagline “Reality is Relative.”

Find a copy of Jethro’s work on AmazonUK or AmazonUSA. Of course be sure to follow him on Twitter.
