Today I am interviewing Stephen Zimmer, author of the new sword and sorcery, dark fantasy novel, Heart of a Lion.

DJ: Hey Stephen! Thanks for stopping by to do this interview!
For readers who aren’t familiar with you, tell us a little about yourself?
Stephen Zimmer: I’m a guy who keeps moving forward, but one of the things that is a very special part of me is that I am a writer, a path that calls you to create, live, and grow. The genres that I have been published in include epic fantasy (Fires in Eden Series), cross-genre (The Rising Dawn Saga), the Rayden Valkyrie tales (such as the Dark Sun Dawn Trilogy), steampunk (the Harvey and Solomon tales), and horror (the Hellscapes short story collections).
I am into a lot of things, ranging from music and guitar playing, to martial arts and history, and travel, and all of it factors into my writing path. But at the end of the day, I’m just me, a guy doing his best to become his personal best.
DJ: What is Heart of a Lion about?
SZ: Ultimately it is about courage and being willing to do the right thing, even when you have to stand alone to do so. But Heart of a Lion is a story that follows the warrior Rayden Valkyrie on her journey back to the northern tribal lands where the people that adopted her as a child, following a terrible tragedy, live.
