Episode 356 – With Kim Wilkins

The Functional Nerds Podcast

In episode 356 of the Functional Nerds Podcast, Patrick Hester and John Anealio welcome Kim Wilkins – author of the new book DAUGHTERS OF THE STORM. About Kim: Kim Wilkins was born in London, and grew up at the seaside north of Brisbane, Australia. She is an Associate Professor of writing and book culture at University of Queensland. She writes a lot, usually by ignoring unimportant things like cooking and washing her children’s clothes. She has enduring obsessions with Viking-age England, misty landscapes, pagan mythology, Led Zeppelin, and really really small dogs. About DAUGHTERS OF THE STORM: They are the daughters of a king. Though they share the same royal blood, they could not be more different. Bluebell is a proud warrior, stronger than any man and with an ironclad heart to match. Rose’s heart is all too passionate: She is the queen of a neighboring kingdom who is risking everything for a forbidden love. Ash is discovering a dangerous talent for magic that might be a gift—or a curse. And then there are the twins—vain Ivy, who lives for admiration, and zealous Willow, who lives for the gods. But when their father is stricken by a mysterious ailment, these five sisters must embark on a desperate journey to save him and prevent their treacherous stepbrother from seizing the throne. Their mission: find the powerful witch who can cure the king. But to succeed on their quest, they must overcome their differences and hope that the secrets they hide from one another and the world are never brought to light. Because if this royal family breaks, it could destroy the kingdom.

Far Fetched Fables No. 33 Dario Ciriello and Kim Wilkins

Far Fetched Fables

First Story:  “America is Coming!” by Dario Ciriello “Nice day for the end of the world. Any sign yet?” Salvatore’s voice at his side startled Peppino. A few moments ago his friend had been flat on his back on the scrubby ground with his right hand curled around an empty wine bottle, snoring gently. Peppino shook his head. The two friends watched as the rising sun beat a familiar copper path on the tranquil sea, spilling warmth over the world. Across the gulf, beyond the mountainous headland silhouetted in the rising sun’s glare, the deserted capital of Palermo held its breath and waited for the end of history. America was coming! Dario Ciriello is a professional author and editor whose nonfiction book Aegean Dream, the bittersweet memoir of a year spent on the small Greek island of Skopelos (the actual Mamma Mia! island), was a UK travel bestseller in 2012 and has recently been published in Poland.
