V.S. Holmes proves that Archaeology and Science Fiction go together like peanut butter and jelly. The Nel Bently books are based on a sassy archaeologist that travels from planet to planet solving mysteries and saving worlds. On this episode of the DIY Writers Podcast, our conversation quickly turns from V.S.'s amazing books to their real-life experiences and knowledge as a contract archaeologist. I love the conversation we had and I believe you will find V.S. to be as interesting and lovely as I did.
V. S. Holmes is an international bestselling author. They created the REFORGED series and the NEL BENTLY BOOKS. Smoke and Rain, the first book in their fantasy quartet, won New Apple Literary's Excellence in Independent Publishing Award in 2015 and a Literary Titan Gold in 2020. In addition, they have published short fiction in several anthologies. As a disabled and queer human, they work as an advocate and educator for representation in SFF worlds. When not writing, they work as a contract archaeologist throughout the northeastern U.S. They live in a Tiny House with their spouse, a fellow archaeologist, their not-so-tiny dog, and own too many books for such a small abode.
