1. Tell me about the world of your book, Fabled. How is it different from Earth and from other fantasy worlds, and what inspired you to write a story set there?
Fabled is similar to a medieval setting in our world, but otherwise is pretty different. There are giants, witches, enchanted beasts and magic. The inspiration for Fabled stemmed from the stories I used to tell my little sister, about a dragon who lived in the woods behind our house. That was years ago-the model on Fabled is the sister I’m referring to!-but the story of the mysterious dragon and the world he lived in, stayed with me. I blended that with fairy tales, and it turned into Fabled.
2. Given the chance, what part of your world would you most like to visit?
That’s a tough one, but I honestly think I’d like to just chill in the forest. I love nature, hiking, all that fun stuff, and I think it’d be doubly exciting if I had the chance to come across some magical creatures. I think the city of Illyminatym might be a close second, and depending on my mood (and if I was running low on provisions), might be my first choice.
3. Which would you least like to visit?
Lady Ebony’s estate. She and I would *not* get along.
4. Finally, what are you working on and where can readers find you?
I’m currently working on a prequel trilogy of the Fabled Hunters series. Readers have had questions about one of my characters, Silvan, and I realized I wanted to know more about him, too. First book will be released in August 2017.
