There are no simple cases. Jacob “Jolly” Fellows knows this.
The London of 1888, the London of steam engines, Victorian intrigue, and horseless carriages is not a safe place nor simple place…but it’s his place. Jolly is a thief catcher, a door-crashing thug for the prestigious Bow Street Firm, assigned to track down a life sized automatic ballerina. But when theft turns to murder and murder turns to conspiracy, can Jolly keep his head above water? Can a thief catcher catch a killer?
Automatic Woman is the second novel from award winning screenwriter Nathan L. Yocum. A volatile mix of steampunk, noir, historical fiction, and two-fisted action, Automatic Woman takes us to a place that never was yet we all know so well… the London of Jules Verne, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Jack the Ripper and Bram Stoker with a pneumatic twist.

How is Writing In Your Genre Different from Others?
Steampunk is still a niche field. I can count the number of successful Steampunk authors on my fingers and toes. That said, its a lot of fun and I hope it expands with time.
What Advice Would You Give Aspiring Writers?
Finish your manuscript! Before you seek advice or ask for help or get stuck in editing black holes, write your story. Problems can get fixed in editing, but you have nothing until the story has been told at least once from start to finish.
Nathan L. Yocum is an author, teacher, and entrepreneur living on the Big Island of Hawai’i.
His novels, The Zona, Automatic Woman, and The Strong Brain are all available through Curiosity Quills. Nathan has short stories featured in CQ Primetime, CQ After Dark, Lamplight: Dark Fiction Quarterly, and Writers on the Wrong Side of the Road.
As a writer Nathan’s inspirations include Kurt Vonnegut, Cormac McCarthy, George Orwell, Aldous Huxley, Charles Bukowski, but admits that the list goes on and on.
Nathan was also the editor-in-chief of SpecLit Masters Magazine, an eZine featuring the best in speculative short fiction, as well as an award winning screenwriter for Catbrain Film Factory.
What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
Automatic Woman was originally a short story that I’d written for my now defunct magazine “SpecLit Masters.” It was the marriage of three things: 1) my love of Sherlock Holmes, 2) my interest in Steampunk as an up-and-coming genre, and 3) my compulsion to create an obese, unattractive action hero.
