Podcast Episode 17: From School Plays to Published Book

Davidson L. HaworthFirst, I want to apologize that this podcast is a day late. I got some very sad and upsetting news this weekend and it threw off my whole schedule.

In this episode, I chat with author Davidson L. Haworth, who, like me, traveled overseas as a child. In this podcast, he talks about his travels to England, writing plays for elementary school assemblies, getting back to the traditional stories of good vs. evil, how J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis inspire his work, vampires, the heros and villains of The Prali Trilogy, the role Cardiff Castle in Wales helped break writer’s block, babushkas, Russian culture, and traveling in general.

Mentioned in this Episode:

  • Vampire heros on TV
    The tortured vampire who does his best to not give in to is vampire nature is a common theme in literature, film and television today. Some titles that spring up to mind include Angel, Forever Knight, Moonlight, The Vampire Diaries and the recently launched Being Human, as well as the character of Lewis in Anne Rice’s Vampire Chronicles.
  • The Sorcerer’s Apprentice
    This started out as one of the short in the original Fantasia featuring Mickey Mouse. Last year, it inspired a live action film starring Nicolas Cage as the sorcerer and Jay Baruchel as the apprentice.
  • The invasion of England and sacking of York in 1066.

    Chagall restaurant in SuceavaI stayed in Suceava and the restaurant I mentioned having fantastic pizza at was Chagall. Castle Bran was home to Queen Marie, originally Princess Marie of Edinburgh. She was the wife of Ferdinand I of Romaina and was Queen consort of Romania from 1914 to 1927. Her known affair was with Lt. Zizi Cantacuzene, but she is suspected as having numerous other lovers, including Grand Duke Boris Vladmirovich and Waldorf Astor. She was a very charitable woman, helping with the Red Cross and other causes during the second World War.

About the author

As The Genre Traveler, Carma Spence loves to view the world through Genre-Coloured glasses. In other words, she sees the world through a lens of science fiction, fantasy, and horror, where trash cans can be Daleks in disguise and neighborhood forests can harbor faeries and sprites. Magic realism is real! Or at least you can choose to see the world that way to add to the fun and awe of life.
