JV Hilliard is the author of the Warminster Saga fantasy novels. Here’s how he often introduces himself.
“Born of steel, fire and black wind, J.V. Hilliard was raised as a highlander in the foothills of a once-great mountain chain on the confluence of the three mighty rivers that forged his realm’s wealth and power for generations. His father, a peasant twerg, toiled away in industries of honest labor and instilled in him a work ethic that would shape his destiny. His mother, a local healer, cared for his elders and his warrior uncle, who helped to raise him.”
That bio started out as something of a wink-wink, but he liked it enough to keep using it.
During the podcast, we talk about how he builds the inner world of his books and works to keep that world consistent across all his novels. He discussed how his beta readers have contributed to his editorial process, and what it’s been like to expand his written work into a video game and a graphic novel.
Thanks for reading and listening, and I’ll see you here in the next issue of 500 Words.
