SPOTLIGHT ON: Stephen Dorning a.k.a. S.P.Dorning =)



How did you get involved in the upcoming Imaginarium convention?

Several of my author friends in Imagicopter were going and I checked into on the webpage.



What is your latest release and what genre is it?

“Alongrid Knights” It is actually a collection of short stories set in the steam powered world of Alongrid.  It’s a Steampunk/Fantasy collection.



Quick description of it.  

Think 1940’s America, powered by steam with elves as the Nazis.



Something unique about it. 

The elves are the bad guys? You don’t see a lot of that, but I think it works really well for the stories.



Links for people to buy it.
