Bleeding Ink Tale – Rob Pernell’s Tale

Ink Babes: Welcome to the spotlight, Robert. Please tell us a little bit about yourself.

RLF: I’m an author of numerous published short stories, poems, and even an odd essay. When not immersed in the world of writing (i.e. my day job) I’m a baker by profession. You can keep up with my authorial daring-do at www.robertleefrazier.com
 
Ink Babes: What sparked the idea for your Bleeding Ink tale?
RLF: This tale is part of an unpublished story-collection titled Strange Season. After I created the character Rob Pernell, I’d been looking for an opportunity to tell his back-story.
 
Ink Babes: Rob Pernell gets quite a fright in his dark tale. We’re wondering if you have a fear of anything unusual?
RLF: I’m not sure it’s unusual, but all my life I’ve had a dread fear of burning to death in a fire. Perhaps, this is why I got rid of my antagonists the way I did?
 
Ink Babes:  Haha! Clever! Robert, tell us, what are you reading at the moment?
RLF: I am reading Christopher Moore’s book Sacre Bleu. He is one of my all-time favorite authors. I highly recommend this, and all of his other works. He is one of the few authors who can make me laugh out-loud while reading.
 
Ink Babes: Love those LOL moments! What are you working on now?
RLF: I’m working on a strange short story titled Lordess of the Small Things. It combines the reunion of a woman with tiny creatures from her childhood, and the controversial Hill Top Mining Method. I don’t know if it will change attitudes concerning this destructive mining practice but, I hope it makes readers stop and think.
 
Ink Babes: If you could have dinner with one person, dead or alive, who would it be and why?
RLF: Ray Bradbury. His life and work was such an inspiration to me. He is dearly missed.
 
Ink Babes: Yes, missed by many. Thank you so much for stepping into the spotlight, Robert. Before we say au revoir, is there anything that you would like to say to our Bleeding Ink readers?
RLF: Yes, buy this anthology. The reading community needs to support publishing ventures like Bleeding Ink.

Ever Yours,
