I love your stories and characters - can I write/publish fanfic with them?While I am grateful that you enjoy the worlds and characters I've created, I don't support or entertain fanfiction of my work. My characters' stories are mine to tell. I encourage you, however, to learn what it is about my story and characters that inspired you, and use that inspiration to craft your own characters and your own worlds. There is always room for new stories, new characters and new worlds in fantasy fiction, and I would love to read the new things that you come up with!
Can I create fan art based on your stories, characters and worlds?I appreciate fan art - as an artist myself - and I would be glad to see artistic works based on my stories, characters, and worlds. Seeing how you envision what I've written is a pleasure! I do not, however, support fan art that puts my work into narrative art forms (comic or graphic novel) to tell new or different stories with my characters than what I have written. My characters' stories are mine to tell.
Why does it take you so long to write sometimes?Well, it could be any number of reasons. For one, I take the time to craft the story how I want to, and I try to give it the right amount of editing/revision/polishing to make it as good as it can be. For another thing, I have Fibromyalgia, which sometimes affects how I think and process, and it's just tough to get words on the page on those days. And finally - I'm a human, with a life, and I'm just trying to be creative in it. I can't promise I will get my stories out at a lightning fast, devourable speed - but I can promise that when I do, they will be as good as I can craft them.
What is your favorite book?I have a few: "Biting the Sun" by Tanith Lee "The House With The Clock in its Walls" by John Bellairs The Bridei Chronicles (a trilogy of books) by Juliet Marillier "The Bell at Sealy Head" by Patricia A. McKillip
