I have followed Ryan McFadden’s writing career since it was in its embryonic stage. It’s no secret we’ve been besties since high school, we’ve been in each other’s wedding parties, and we’re each other’s “go to” when we need a good swift kick in the ass (metaphorically or physically).
The novel that has become Cursed: Black Swan – A Fixer Novel is about 20 years in the making. I read the first version of it when it was called Nathaniel, before it was put back into a drawer for a decade. I’ve read everything as Ryan has evolved as a writer, he became an Aurora award winner for his part in the anthology Women of the Apocalypse, he won again with The Puzzle Box, and he got more accolades for his shared world concept “The 10th Circle Project”.
