The Television Crossover Universe Celebrates M.H. NORRIS!

As stated in our last post, with the launch of our podcast, the definition of membership in the TVCU Crew was expanded to include both website contributors and podcast hosts.

M.H. Norris started off as a guest, coming on the show to talk about her work.  It was on that show that she let us know that she wanted to co-host a scheduled episode featuring a pair of her favorite time travelers.  Later, when we underwent a drastic cast change up, M.H. became a full-time co-host.

I will continue at this point to discuss some of my favorites of M.H.'s episodes.

TVCU #20 - Phil Hornshaw & Nick Hurwitch






April 26, 2016
Join the TVCU Crew and guest co-host M.H. Norris as we chat with Phil Hornshaw & Nick Hurwitch of QUAN+UM, authors of the Time Travel Guide, So You Created a Wormhole, and The Space Hero's Guide to Glory: How to Get Off Your Podunk Planet and Master the Final Frontier. We talk to them a lot about the perils and perplexities of time travel using films and television shows to illustrate the theories of time travel.

TVCU #41 - Nicole Petit Strikes Back (18thWall Power Hour #2)






September 20, 2016
The tables have turned! Now Nicole Petit is the guest, and M.H. Norris helps James Bojaciuk grill her with questions. Everyone talks about the Arthurian Legends, After Avalon, Sir Gawain and the Green Knight's sequel, university award shows, Rudyard Kipling, Just So Stories, dragons and From the Dragon Lord's Library, a historically accurate Victorian era, black magic radio, and just what you should do if you submit a series to 18thWall Productions.

When I presented the idea of these bios to the TVCU Crew, I gave them a short interview questionaire, purely optional.  Here are M.H.'s answers:

Name: M.H. Norris

M.H. Norris is the award-winning mystery maven and sci-fi sorceress. Her first novel, Badge City: Notches, earned her the 2016 Pulp Ark New Pulp Award for Best Novella, and her recent All the Petty Myths spin-off, The Whole Art of Detection, took #4 Best Mystery in The 2016 Preditors and Editors Readers’ Poll.

Her short fiction has appeared in The Lemon Herberts and Glass Coin, with forthcoming stories to appear in Speakeasies and Spiritualists and Saucy Robot Stories. She is co-host and co-producer on The Raconteur Roundtable, formerly The Television Crossover Universe Podcast, a popular podcast focused on in-depth, intimate interviews with authors, actors, and other creators. In addition, she is the Television Coordinator for The Time Travel Nexus.

Her all-new mystery series, All the Petty Myths, will begin to appear in early 2017 from 18thWall productions. The first volume will be an anthology focused on mythological mysteries, before segueing into stand-alone novels written entirely by her.

1. My favorite crossover

Image result for Big Finish Productions’ “All Consuming Fire”

I’d have to say Big Finish Productions’ “All Consuming Fire” where the Seventh Doctor and Ace meet Sherlock Holmes and Watson for a fun adventure. When I first listened to it, I wasn’t sure how The Doctor and Sherlock would get along, but it’s so much fun to listen to because it takes what’s great about both worlds and brings it together for one advneture.

Image result for “Forever Fallen.”

My favorite Easter Egg is something I discovered rather recently, also from Big Finish. Joshua Wansiko wrote the winning story for the first annual Paul Spragg Memorial Competition, “Forever Fallen.” (https://www.bigfinish.com/releases/v/forever-fallen-1589) In the story, there’s a reporter who is briefly mentioned and her name is an anagram for Sarah Jane Smith. I had the privilege of talking with Joshua a bit about his story and when he told me that, I cried.

2. Favorite TVCU Blog Post

For the 50th episode of the TVCU, James, Ben, and I did a look back at our highlight reel. A year is a long time to be airing a podcast and I’d made friends and memories along the way.

Rob turned around and did a blog post about the first 40 episodes (before the giant shift with the podcast) and I had fun seeing it from the perspective of the guy who created the TVCU.

Thanks for letting me on the show, Rob.

3. Favorite Post I’ve Written

I never have actually appeared on the blog. I’ve chimed in my two cents worth now and then but not on an actual blog post. [But M.H. is always welcome to join in and contribute a post, especially about time travel. -- Rob]
4. Favorite Podcast Episode.

Oh, this is a hard one...

I’d have to say the two-parter Nicole Petit and I did together. We’re really close friends and it was a blast to get to spend a couple of hours talking about each other’s work. She’s such a talented writer and editor and I love how she’s starting to get the recognition she deserves and to get to chat with her on the podcast was fun.

Plus, when she’s around James is finally outnumbered.

5. My favorite podcast guest.

Can I say two? I’m going to.

Phil Hornshaw and Nick Hurwitch (I’m counting them as one because they were on the same episode). I have loved the book “So You Created A Wormhole: A Time Traveler’s Guide To Time Travel” for ages and when I heard they were coming on the podcast I invited myself right on as a guest host. (https://www.buzzsprout.com/52660/372763-tvcu-20-phil-hornshaw-nick-hurwitch?client_source=small_player&iframe=true&referrer=https://www.buzzsprout.com/52660.js?player=small)

I wasn’t about to miss that.

And it was a blast getting to talk about time travel with fellow nerds. Trust me, that is a subject I can talk about all day and I do, actually, over at the Time Travel Nexus. (http://timetravelnexus.com/author/mhnorris/)

My other one is Guy Adams. I was one of the hosts for his second episode (a scheduling conflict kept me from being on his first one) and it was fascinating listening to him talk about Doctor Who and writing in general and I had a blast with it. (https://www.buzzsprout.com/52660/439728-tvcu-49-guy-adams-talks-about-big-finish-and-chocolate-spread?client_source=small_player&iframe=true&referrer=https://www.buzzsprout.com/52660.js?player=small)

6. My favorite Podcast Discussion.

Image result for Classic Who

When the fabulous Tina DeLucia came on and reminded all of us why Classic Who is fabulous. The world needs more reminders about that. (https://www.buzzsprout.com/52660/451242-tvcu-53-small-nerd-talks-about-doctor-who-tina-delucia-the-first-doctor?client_source=small_player&iframe=true&referrer=https://www.buzzsprout.com/52660.js?player=small)

Image result for The First Doctor

They are a wealth of information about Classic Who and I often go to them for advice or to double check a fact. Also, they wrote a beautiful article on the Nexus about The First Doctor (http://timetravelnexus.com/the-original-and-overlook-you-might-say/) and one about the Second Doctor is due out this week.

7. My favorite interview that I was involved with.

Can I pick two again?

That honor is going to have to go either to Phil Hornshaw and Nick Hurwitch or to Nicole Petit.

Like I said before, the Wormhole Guys were authors I’d admired for a while. Nicole is a dear friend and it was a blast to talk to her.

8. My favorite podcast discussion I was involved in.

Same as six. Tina wins.

I have my own website (https://mhnorris.com). I’m also on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/MHNorris4/) and Twitter at @MHNorris4.

One place to find me every week is on 18thWall Productions’ website for my weekly column “If Walls Could Talk” (http://18thwall.com/tag/if-walls-could-talk/) where I give writing advice and general musings week to week.

Keep an eye on 18thWall Productions’ website and Facebook in the next few weeks as my newest book, “All The Petty Myths” is due out soon! This is launching the story of Dr. Rosella Tassoni who I’ve mentioned a few times on the podcast and I’m so excited for y’all to finally get to read the beginning of her adventures.
