Best of Book Banter S2 EP 101: Rebroadcast-Angela R. Hughes

Hello My Happy People,

Our Holiday break is quickly coming to the end and we will have new shows coming soon when we begin season three February 7th. In the meantime, we are sharing some of our best episodes from season two while we gear up for our Love Fest coming this February and March on Book Banter with Dianne Burckhardt and Book Banter Magazine. 

We are celebrating love for Valentine's Day and beyond, because love is too important to just focus on for one day of the year, it should be everyday. We are going to feature authors who write on all aspects of love: self-love, romantic love, dealing with loss of love or a loved one, love of life, and more.  So mark your calendars, the Love Fest begins here on Feb. 7, 2024!

Today Dianne is sharing the rebroadcast of her chat with historical, epic fantasy author, Angela R. Hughes. Angela is based in Waco, Texas, but part of her heart is firmly ensconced across the pond in the United Kingdom, Celtic Mythology, and Arthurian Legends.  It has been her ambition to write stories that grip and inspire her readers, alluring them into myth and legend. 

Angela believes in the power of storytelling and has always been inspired by mythologies and legends of the hero’s quest.  She has been particularly drawn to Arthurian legend and its ancient roots that spanned into the Cymru world.  She has studied Arthurian legend, as well as Celtic Mythology.  While living in Ireland, she fell in love with the history and landscapes of England, Ireland, Wales, and Scotland.

​She tells Dianne about her fantasy series The Once and Future Chronicles which currently include; Book One: Elanor and the Song of the Bard, Book Two: Merlin and the Magic of Time,  with Book Three: Arthur and the Golden Dragon coming soon.

At the end of the interview Angela reads from her most recent publication, Book Two: Merlin and the Magic of Time. You do NOT want to miss that! Don't wait ... go listen now!

You can find all of Angela's social media on her linktree account.
