Welcome to the 2011 March episode of the Broad Pod! Join hostess Jean Marie Ward (http://JeanMarieWard.com) for this month's powerful collection of short readings from women writing across the realm of speculative fiction.
The Broad Pod is sponsored by Broad Universe, an international, non-profit organization dedicated to promoting, honoring, and celebrating women writers of science fiction, fantasy, and horror. Find out more about our organization, including new fiction released by women, more podcasts, and information about writing and publishing for women, at our website, www.broaduniverse.org
March is Women’s History Month, and this month’s talented women writers spotlight many aspects of Woman Power—and powerful women:
Charged with treason, Gail Z. Martin’s (http://www.ascendantkingdoms.com/) pregnant queen Kiera must wage a war of words to save herself, her friends, and her unborn child.
In Larissa N. Niec’s (http://larissaniec.com/) selection, the goddess Rhianna’s high priestess embarks on a dangerous spirit quest to seek help for her dying land.
Theresa Crater (http://theresacrater.com/) introduces her heroine—and us—to the legendary Morgan le Fey in the land beneath the hallowed hill.
Then journey with Diane Whiteside (http://dianewhiteside.com/) to present-day Virginia, where a psychically gifted homicide detective learns just how powerful a woman working for the FBI can be.
Finally, soar into the future with Danielle Ackley-McPhail (http://sidhenadaire.com/) and a squadron of hell-raising women fighter pilots led by the infamous Scarlet Jay.
Sit back. Enjoy. But don’t expect to relax—not around these women.
