About your host, Melinda Kucsera:

I am Melinda Kucsera, an indie fantasy author who wrote and published 20+ books since 2016 across 6 series. I write epic fantasy adventures about families and magical creatures who’re just trying to survive in a world that hates and fears magic but is steeped in it.

My books are full of magic and mayhem, but somehow, even the darkest adventure always ends well. ⁠Join me⁠ every week for a new story.

What series do I write?

  • The Curse Breaker series chronicles the adventures of a reluctant mage (Sarn), his son, as they fight to save their underground city from monsters, ancient evils, and a variety of magical threats.

  • The His Angelic Keeper series follows a ghost girl who just wants to save her still-living family, not stop a demon invasion or the literal apocalypse, but she’ll do that too if she must.

  • The Robin of Larkspur series follows Robin, a woman who just wants to save her daughter from the mythical creatures that kidnapped her baby.

  • The Divergent Heroes series is supposed to star two knights who are partially disabled but a younger version of Sarn keeps stealing the scenes.

  • The Curse Breaker’s Companion series which includes side quests, wacky what ifs, and stories from my newsletter of Sarn and his family in our world because they won’t stay inside the epic fantasy books they star in.

  • The Rogue Gods Trilogy follows an ex-war god, a witch, and a fallen angel as they fight to save the world from a demon invasion and set the future back on the right course. Follow the Rogue Gods Kickstarter Campaign.

I tell all their secrets and what trouble they get into in between books. Support this podcast: <a href="" rel="payment"></a>
