Bulwark Anthology Group Author Interview!
This week on Indie Publishing Group we have a very special author interview. It’s time to meet the authors of the Bulwark Anthology! We’re going to interview all eight authors in a round table style interview.
Centered around the town of Bulwark, it’s time to let your fears and imagination run wild as strange and mysterious events continue to plague this small town. There are currently nine books in the Bulwark Series; Bulwark, The Knowing, The Illusion, The Craving, The Window, The Missing Branch, The Body, The Battle of Bulwark and The Darkness.
Well, let’s get on with the interview with the authors from the Bulwark Anthology!
Introduce yourself to us. Tell everyone who you are, where you’re from, what you enjoy doing, what your hobbies and interests are!
- Brit Lunden – My name is Brit Lunden and I write children’s books under the name Carole P. Roman. I am an avid reader, and my favorite pastime is playing with my grandchildren. I work full-time in a family business, so I get to travel all over the country with my grown sons. One of my sons is an author. I do the marketing and publicity for all his books. I love the ballet, concerts, and the opera, and have season tickets so I never miss a performance. Since we are discussing my adult fiction, I can share that my favorite place on earth is Las Vegas, and there is nothing I like more than a craps game. I host three monthly blog radio shows and have founded a magazine called Indie Author’s Monthly with author RL Jackson. I love the indie community and try my best to help authors spread the word of their work. I think there is phenomenal untapped talent in the indie community and love being part of the movement to showcase these talents.
- DJ Cooper – Hi there, thank you for having me. I’m DJ Cooper and I live in SE England. I’ve run a successful slimming business for almost eighteen years. When I’m not working or writing I have various hobbies I dabble with. I do a lot of cross stitch. I try to get out for a walk most days. We have a Horsfield Tortoise, a degu (small fluffy thing with a long tail, originates from Chile, bites if you’re not paying attention), a bearded dragon (lizard. Originates from Oz. Flies, breathes fire) and two tanks of tropical fish who all require varying amounts of attention. I’m married and have two teenagers who make me immensely proud on a daily basis.
- Brittney Leigh – Hi! I’m Brittney Leigh. I’m from Long Island, New York. I have a background of being on stage and acting. I enjoy listening to all kinds of music, singing and dancing to them. I’m proud of the time period I grew up in. As an older Millennial I got to experience the earlier part of my life without being attached to my phone, having actual conversations with people, playing outside a little past dark, discovering the internet without rules in place for it yet, the rise and fall of Napster and MySpace, VHS tapes, cassette tapes and CD’s. But the most magical part of my generation was being able to see the technology change while still understanding how we got there from the older technology. Nowadays I enjoy binge-watching my favorite TV shows and cooking delicious food with my boyfriend.
- E.H. Graham – I am a mom of two very “creative” preschoolers–creative as they are learning and creative as they discover new ways to do things they shouldn’t. I would rather be outside than inside, rather be with people rather than alone, rather be reading a book than on my phone, and rather be drinking tea than coffee. Fun fact about me, I can’t wink; a fact which may find entertaining as they request multiple times that I “try” and then roll with laughter as I contort my face into unnatural positions.
- Kay MacLeod – Hi, thank you so much for having us today! I’m Kay MacLeod, an English author with a passion for fantasy. I’m a gamer at heart, I love RPG video games such as Dragon Age, Stardew Valley, Neverwinter Nights, and Pokémon, and also the card game Magic: The Gathering and some good old-fashioned Dungeons and Dragons. My other hobbies include miniature painting, playing bass guitar at my church, re-watching Marvel movies, and weeping over the fact that I have to wait for season three of The Dragon Prince.
- Del Henderson – My name is Del Henderson, and I am from the state of Illinois in the USA. I am your typical person who loves to eat, sleep and watch television. However, when I am not doing those things or at work, I write! I enjoy creating entire worlds in my head and writing them down so all the world can join me on my imaginary adventures. After all, most things in life are better when doing them with other people, well unless you’re waiting in line for the bathroom that is.
- Kate Kelley – I am a wife to a nerdy Optometrist, mother of two rambunctious, small children, and when I’m not doing mommy duties, I write fantasy and paranormal romance. I have a B.A. in English Studies and Creative Writing and have been writing since I was seven. I wrote my first novella at ten years old. It was a fantasy, of course, about alien cats, and is probably my best work to date. I have six novels and two novellas published since starting my indie journey a year and a half ago. My debut novel, Birth Stone, has hit the top 100 charts on Amazon’s Saga bestsellers. I hope to write many more novels in the future.
- R.L. Jackson – Hello! My name is R.L Jackson and I’m an independent filmmaker, magazine editor, and screenwriter. I love writing romance and romantic suspense with a hope that readers, “Get Lost In Intense Passion and Diverse Worlds.” I live in south Florida I enjoy binge-watching Netflix, use my treadmill as an over-sized coat hanger, but I love to dance to the Fitness Marshall videos on YouTube. I’m currently working on a new romance series, titled On The Set working on other Urban Fantasy books and will be crowdfunding the indie movie for Crashing Into Me later this year!
When did you all start writing and why? We’d love to learn what started you on your journey into indie writing and publishing!
- Del Henderson – The strange thing was that I didn’t always like to write; in fact, I downright hated it. I remember writing school reports with the utmost dread. In 2010 however, I thought up an interesting movie idea and went to write it down. I only intended to write down a short paragraph, but before I knew it I was three chapters into my first book! How I started to write is still kind of a mystery; the best I could describe it was that it was just meant to be.
- E.H. Graham – I started writing in junior high and high school as an escape from reality and a way to cope with struggles in my life. A couple of years ago, I published a series of children’s books that help with speech development. I have always enjoyed writing young adult and adult works, but these were never made public…that is until now. The Window is my first published adult work.
- Brittney Leigh – Middle school. I started writing journal entries in my creative writing class. I discovered my passion when my teacher published a few of my poems in the school newspaper. It felt good to have something published and be told it was good work.
- DJ Cooper – I’ve always written, ever since I could hold a pencil in my left nostril! It started with a journal when I was very young which carried on for many years. I progressed into stage scripts at school and eventually did a couple of dummy runs with longer fiction before taking a break to bring up my family. Eventually, I published under a pen name a few years ago before starting again under my real name.
Which is your favorite book you have written and what gave you the idea for it? Is it one of the Bulwark books, or perhaps another personal favorite?
- DJ Cooper – It’s got to be Missing Remnants and not just because I’ve just won Indie Authors Monthly Magazine’s Sci-Fi Book of the year for 2018! Detective Track is a suspended cop on a space station who is dragged into an investigation no-one else will touch. He’s hounded by messages left on the station’s system and is convinced he’s being followed. His job is to find the survivors of a biological outbreak who are mysteriously disappearing. The survivors have been left with various disabilities and they’re considered a burden on society by many people in charge. What gave me the premise was watching the 2012 Paralympics and seeing that not only can all members of society contribute in various capacities but that there are people behind the scenes who will step up and do what needs to be done to get people to the start line. Track is a bit like that. He helps where he can and doesn’t like to stand by and watch people be dismissed by the Authority.
- R.L. Jackson – I think all my books are my favorites, but I have to say writing The Craving, which is kind of an introduction to Sunrise Tonight has been my favorite. My love for vampires, witches and magic is taking over my writing lol.
- Brittney Leigh – Well, since I’ve only written one book, I’d have to say it’s my favorite first child as of right now. Lol. I’d say all of the binge-watching paid off, as the idea for this book came from a collaboration of the shows I watch. Riverdale, Gossip Girl, and Once Upon A Time were just a few of the inspirations that took my mind and my writing on a creative adventure.
- Del Henderson – The Unicorn Hunter has to be my favorite book so far. The book was intended to be more of a children’s book, but it did not turn out that way and morphed into something else entirely. Sometimes being a writer means knowing when to let go of your idea of how a story should go and let it write itself.
How did you come up with the title for your book in the Bulwark Anthology?
- Kate Kelley – The title of my book, The Body, came to me mostly from the main character, Rudd, and his relationship with his love interest, Lilli, who happens to be a spirit. I liked the juxtaposition between Rudd and Lilli, because Rudd is a fighter and very much in tune with his body and less so with his feelings, with his spirit, whereas Lilli is all spirit, and has no body, and therefore is consumed with things not of the material world. Of course, when Rudd meets her, he is forced to look deeper inside himself, beyond the shell that is his body, and explore a lot of repressed feelings and thoughts that really make up who he is. And so, the book is named after Rudd, who represents “the body” that the title alludes to.
- Del Henderson – I have always been interested in history and wars from the past so when Bulwark mentioned that there was a Civil War battle that took place near the town, I knew that I had to write about it! So, naturally, The Battle of Bulwark was the perfect title.
- E.H. Graham – The Window centers on Brianna Scott, a woman who is home-bound due to a degenerative disease. However, despite her condition, she is pulled into the center of the town’s recent mysteries due to events she witnesses through her window. The window is not only an important location throughout the story, but it serves as symbolism for Brianna’s condition and how it evolves as the story progresses.
- Brittney Leigh – I wanted to come up with a title that represented what my characters have to go through. They struggle and grow and learn all within a short period of time, and they had to make it through the darkness to find their self-realization.
- R.L. Jackson – Well, I always pick titles with dual meanings and undertones. So, in The Craving, Savannah craves normalcy, intimacy, independence from her mom and of course Marshall. Marshall has very literal cravings, the vampires crave blood, dominance and power, so the theme of Craving is woven throughout for many different reasons.
- DJ Cooper – I tend to like short titles. When thinking about my latest story for the Bulwark Anthology, Dr. Peter Kent is plagued by situations which are more easily explained away as hallucinations rather than real life. He would rather maintain there was an elaborate illusion than conclude there were paranormal forces at play.
The covers on Bulwark all look amazing! Who helped you with the covers? Or did you design them all yourself? What was the inspiration behind the cover designs?
- DJ Cooper – If my book covers have anything more than a black rectangle with white writing on, they were not produced by me! I do not do art! R.L. Jackson kindly utilized her many talents to create the cover for The Illusion.
- Brittney Leigh – R.L. Jackson was very helpful in the cover process. I choose a picture that I felt was perfect for the cover and then R.L. Jackson worked her magic with the rest of it. She is truly creative and has been a pleasure to work with.
- E.H. Graham – The incredibly talented R.L. Jackson designed my cover for The Window as well as the other books in the Bulwark Anthology.
- R.L. Jackson – I created the cover for myself and all the remaining authors. For mine, at first, I wanted it to be cliched vampires but then, I figured, no. The book is about Savannah and the crimson of her mouth is an understated nod to the blood cravings in the book.
I’m starting to see a bit of a theme emerging here, lots of praise for R.L. Jackson’s cover creations, they look awesome! ~ Clayton.
What are some of the themes of the stories in the Bulwark Anthology?
- Brittney Leigh – Love, self-discovery, independence, friendship, and perseverance.
- Brit Lunden – The Knowing started out as a ghost story and ended up in a totally different place. It definitely began from a place of loneliness in a widower’s home after unwanted guests stir up a hornet’s nest of memories. I never intended for it to turn into the possibilities of soul mates and reincarnation. The second chapter takes us back to JB’s youth where we meet the potential love of his life. The Knowing is about that particular feeling that comes over us when we feel things that tell us something special is happening. It’s that instant when we say someone’s been dancing on our grave. It could come as the intuition that suggests we’ve been here before, or even, I know you and understand you are important to me, even though you are a stranger. The Knowing takes a slow trip to that place when two hearts start beating as one and then reveals the why of that. It’s not as chilling or scary as Bulwark. Perhaps it is a little piece of me, and of how I feel about my own husband. Some people may find reincarnation spooky, for me, it’s reassuring that life isn’t random and we come here to be with important souls to complete unfinished business.
- Kate Kelley – Definitely the supernatural/ghosts. Another theme would be finding our inner selves or who we really are. The book, though a quick read, deals with a myriad of themes, including PTSD, mental health, death, grief, pain, love, lust, socio-economic issues such as wealth gaps, and homelessness just to name a few!
What’s your process when you sit down and decide to start writing a book and do you have a system?
- Brit Lunden – No system at all. The first sentence jumps out at me. It usually starts in the middle of an action, and the story unfolds like a movie in my mind. If you’ve ever played Double-Dutch jump rope- that is what my first chapter is usually like- There is that instant when you watch the dual ropes rotating, people are usually singing a rhyming chant, and you have that breathless moment when you have to leap into the game, catching the right second when you won’t tangle the ropes. That is how I start a story. I wait for that perfect moment when I jump into an imaginary world, catching the rhythm of my character’s lives and then going with the flow. I then let the characters take over and they tell me where they want to go. Similarly, when I jumped rope, I am suspended, caught up in the pace and skipping without thinking. It feels as though an automatic pilot in control.
- DJ Cooper – I generally start with a line of dialogue or a feeling. Missing Remnants was created out of a meaningless phrase I uttered one day when I was in a bad mood. Before I knew it, I had a character battling his own bad moods, grief, injuries and bureaucracy! Writing The Illusion for the Bulwark Anthology was different as the town had already been created by Brit Lunden and my two main characters already existed. I don’t have a system as such, and I can’t plan a story. I discovered that at school when I used to leave half a page blank in my books, write the story then write up a summary at the beginning to fill in the gap.
- R.L. Jackson – My system is to create the world, no matter how rough. The setting is important because it shapes your characters and their attitudes, style of dress, geographic locale etc. From there I think about how I want the book to end and then build backward. I almost always end up changing the beginning of my books from what the original beginning was. And I basically refine each chapter and the arcs, motivations and plot until it makes sense for the story and characters. It’s a long process.
- Brittney Leigh – Get all your ideas out on paper. Your ideas may change, and that’s okay. It works itself out as you write.
- Kay MacLeod – I’m an obsessive planner. I need to know exactly where I’m going and the steps to get there. My major weakness is slowing down when I’m trying to figure out details as I go, so I try to head that off before it can happen and ruin my output. I have countless notes on characters, how I’m going to develop them over the story, maps, family trees, and outlines for not just the overall plot but each individual chapter. The list goes on! My style of planning can take some time to figure out, but I know that my words will flow well once I start writing because of it. I like to have a hook at the end of chapters too, so this is the perfect time to break my story down into sections that give readers that ‘one more chapter’ feeling. That isn’t to say that I restrict myself to that exact route though, there have been times when other ideas blossomed during the writing process. I’m happy enough to veer off and explore a better outcome if I think the story will be improved with it. And then fix my plan to make it work with everything else I’ve developed!
- Del Henderson – I generally write a short outline of how the story is to go but also keep in mind to be flexible. Most of the time when I write the stories outcome is not what I originally planned. I try to create characters that will write the story by their natural interactions with each other based on their personalities.
Who are some of your favorite characters and why?
- Brittney Leigh – Brooke Davis from the TV show One Tree Hill is my all-time favorite character. She went through the biggest transitions as a character. We as an audience saw her go from this lost, boy-crazy girl just trying to navigate her way being popular in High School to ditching the boy drama and self-discovering herself and her passions in fashion. Her career grows as she discovers her own strengths. She went from the character I thought was aloof and unable to save, to the woman I aspire to be like one day.
- R.L. Jackson – Savannah and her grandmother, hands down. There is a dynamic there between the two where you almost feel as if her grandmother raised her instead of her mom and in a way, Savannah got the motherly love from her grams because her mother was more of an over-protector. You’ll learn more on that when you read the book. *wink*
Who are some of your favorite authors? Which authors are the authors reading…?
- DJ Cooper – Agatha Christie, James Herbert, Douglas Adams, Terry Pratchett. I also like the Inspector Stone Mysteries by Indie Author Alex R Carver.
- Brittney Leigh – Well, Shout-out to Ashanti, Mario Lopez, and Nicolas Sparks! I’ve met each one at book signings. My favorite author has to be J.K. Rowling. Being an older Millennial, I actually discovered the Harry Potter books way before the movies started coming out. I’ll never forget the imagination that jumped off the pages as I had to imagine what Harry Potter and the magical world around him would look like.
- Del Henderson – I am a huge fan of Shakespeare.
Have you got anything you’re working on now?
- Del Henderson – I am currently working on a thriller-horror novel which I hope will be released later this year.
- Kay MacLeod – Always! Right now, I’m working on two projects. I’ve completed the first draft of a manuscript for a YA gamelit novel with a dystopian touch. It’s set in a world where monster catching games became so popular that scientists developed a way to create real animals with elemental powers for people to battle with. Like all fads, consumers got bored with them and dumped the creatures. Over time, they bred and took over most of the areas between settlements, now the world is too dangerous for most people to travel without monsters of their own. That story will be going out to my beta readers soon and I’m hoping to release it in a couple of months. Keep an eye out for The Carnelian Fox if that sounds like your kind of read! ? I’m also about thirty percent through the third book in The Constellation Saga. It’s an epic fantasy series about a group of people that have each inherited power through their parents from ancient spirits to save the world from an invasion. Their enemy are the Tenebri, a race that survives on life energy and have drained their own home planet to the point of collapse. I love where the characters are going with this series. Everyone is so different, and they are flourishing or breaking in their own unique way. Mostly breaking. The banter between the MCs and even a bunch of the side characters is so fun to write, they have me laughing to myself out loud as I’m walking around in public…
- Brittney Leigh – Not at the moment. Right now, I’m basking in the glory of publishing my first book! Pretty exciting stuff.
- R.L. Jackson – Right now, I have several projects I’m working on, but I’m taking a little hiatus until this release is done so it doesn’t get neglected.
- DJ Cooper – I am currently finishing a science fiction novel called Uninvited. A company sends teams to what they think are uninhabited planets to double check the surface is suitable for human habitation. The scouts fall foul of an alien entity which takes the form of a floating skull. If they abandon the project, they risk demotion. If they stay, they risk death. Already on the bottom rung of their business empire, they have some tough choices to make if the building teams are to be allowed to land.
- Kate Kelley – Yes, I have about three open WIP right now, two of which are continuing series books, and one that is the first of a new series. I’m working mainly on a standalone novel that takes places in my Gem Kingdom world, which is an epic fantasy romance series that was my debut series. I’m excited about this one in particular because my main character is a strong female lead, and she’s a person of color, which you don’t see a lot of in the genre. It is a lot to keep straight–elves, mages, fighters, mermaids, nymphs, giants, queens, kingdoms, etc. It’s a lot of world-building, but it’s a lot of fun too.
Now we’re getting to the fun questions! If you could have any superpowers what would they be?
- DJ Cooper – I’d like to fly. I walk with a walking stick and it takes so much time!
- R.L. Jackson – All the superpowers lol. I’m greedy…Thanos #2…too soon?
Ha Ha lookout world! ~ Clayton.
- Brittney Leigh – If I could have any superpowers, it would be the power to heal others. I’m a people pleaser. I enjoy making others happy.
- Del Henderson – The ability to fly, but only North.
If you could travel to any location in the world where would you all go?
- Del Henderson – I want to climb Mt. Fuji in Japan. I have heard of the beauty it holds, and I want to see it with my own two eyes.
- E.H. Graham – Really, almost anywhere; I love experiencing new places. If I had to pick one, I am obsessed with Japan and would love to go back.
- Brittney Leigh – If I could travel anywhere in the world, I’d be in Huntington Beach, California. I know, you would think I’d go for something more exotic, but the truth is California stole my heart as a little kid. I have family there, so I’ve visited before, but every time there’s just something that ropes me into the relaxed lifestyle of beach, shops, and surfers. I could totally go for S’mores late night on the beach in California.
- R.L. Jackson – Bali or Bora Bora.
- DJ Cooper – I quite like SE England. I would like to discover more of my own country as well as visiting other places. My husband has always wanted to go to New Zealand, so that’s on the list.
Where do you all hope to be in five years’ time?
- DJ Cooper – I hope to have several more titles out and have a better handle on marketing and promotion. I find writing easy. It’s everything else that goes alongside being an indie author that I find so time-consuming and difficult.
- R.L. Jackson – Healthy, alive and happy. However, it may come.
- Brittney Leigh – I hope to have a few more books under my belt as a writer. I would like to be married and happy. That’s all I’ve ever really wanted out of life, happiness, and love.
- Del Henderson – I would love to turn my hobby of writing into a full-time gig, but if I have to settle for winning the lottery, I would be okay with that too.

Author Kay MacLeod
Confession time, I’m a fantasy addict!
For as long as I can remember, I’ve loved the concept of magical worlds. I was the kid with dragons doodled around the edge of her school work, the one with her head constantly buried in a book. As a teen, I shunned partying to play Magic the Gathering and DM Dungeons and Dragons games.
Through the years, I’ve always made up stories and took characters on amazing adventures, in the privacy of my own mind. Now I want to share them with other people.
I live with my husband and cat in Nottinghamshire in England. When I’m not writing (or planning something I’m writing) I’m usually working, reading, playing bass for my church’s worship team, playing computer games (World of Warcraft, Dragon Age, Pokémon, Minecraft) or drinking tea.
Mm, time to put the kettle on…
