Voss Foster lives in the middle of the eastern Washington desert. When he can be pried away from his keyboard, he can be found singing, playing trombone, cooking, practicing photography, and belly dancing, though rarely all at the same time
When did you first start writing?
I could talk about my early stuff, back when I was a kid writing Super Duck. But I really started writing with aspirations toward publication in 2010-2011. February 2011 was my first contract, and it was all downhill from there - no stopping me once I had the rush of selling something I created.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in Eastern Washington (No, not Seattle. No, not Spokane. That big flat, hot part between the two.). I don't know how it influenced my writing, necessarily (outside of my first book being set in my hometown). I suppose you could say it imparted a work ethic to me. Eastern Washington is all farmers and orchard workers and mechanics and factory workers, for the most part. Hard work to get the money, like it or not. Luckily, I like what I do, but it's still work, and it keeps me producing fairly regularly.

Space Slugs is one of those unique tales that both draws you into the characters and plot and strikes that hard to find chord of humor so rare in science fiction.
From the moment that Dr. Murray steps into the space port, you can see the world starting to take beautifully crafted shape. As soon as the space slug is introduced, Frances has managed to make us all want one--even if they are bigger than your average home.
All in all, this is definintely worth far more than the money you'd put out for it.
