SPOTLIGHT ON: Jessica McHugh
How did you get involved in the upcoming Imaginarium convention?
I told myself I’d attend more conventions this year, especially ones outside of my little east coast bubble, and I thought Imaginarium would be a great place to achieve that goal. Plus, I knew some of my favorite inky cohorts would be in attendance. I couldn’t pass up such a great opportunity for networking and debauchery.
What is your latest release and what genre is it?
A bizarro sci-fi novel, “The Green Kangaroos,” released by Perpetual Motion Machine Publishing.
Quick description of it.
A drug-addled, nether-shooting, disgusting romp with atlys addict, Perry Samson, in 2099 Baltimore—well, inside the Sunny Daye Institute’s reality-bending rehab program, at least. Outside is a tad different.
Something unique about it.
It examines addiction from all angles—so much that you might find yourself rooting for the addict, then feeling really bad about yourself. It’s good old fashioned family fun.
