Authors in Abstract Vol 1 Ep 31: Fran Terminiello and the Dragon Kebab Beach Party

It’s a British Invasion for Authors In Abstract as we welcome our first international guest, HEMA fencing instructor and grimdark fantasy author Fran Terminiello! We talk about Fran’s busy life, the reasons people play with swords, and why we procrastinate. Story Time takes Millie the cheerful ex-military dwarf on a beachy adventure with Justice the dog and Minty the orc. Will they be able to roast up some summer fun?

Fran Terminiello is a lead instructor for The School of the Sword. You can find out more about her on their website (, keep up with her on her blog ‘Scribbling in my car‘, or follow her on any of her professional Instagram accounts
