Conversations with Michelle

I haven't been staying home much, have I? Out gallivanting all over the Internet. A girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do.

Today I was being entertained, or perhaps grilled would be a more accurate word, by Michelle, who asks some real doozies of questions. She digs deep, covering academia, the writing process, motherhood... It was a real privilege to be grilled by someone of such depth.

My conversation with Michelle.

Guest-blogging at Reading in the Dark, interview at Word Menagerie

My #WeReadDiverseBooks reading challenge led Hannah, a blogger and active reader, to this blog early in the year. Today she is hosting me on her blog, Reading in the Dark, where she asked me to talk about the genre of Christian fantasy, which she found intriguing. Please click on over to my discussion on some of the challenges facing authors who write Christian fantasy, especially to the adult market.

Christian fantasy

Yesterday, I was interviewed at Word Menagerie, but I was moving through the post-launch exhaustion and a bit of a migraine, so I am late in getting it posted here. Do go take a look. It's not often you see the words Forex, goat, and guinea pig in an author interview.

Guest-blogging at Finding the True Fairy Tale

The Word Changers

Today I am guest-blogging at Ashlee Willis's website, Finding the True Fairy Tale. There I explain why a woman on the downside slope of middle age wrote a novel in a genre that traditionally appeals more to young men than mature women. (The fact that I haven't fully grown up was never mentioned, primarily because I was the one writing the post.)

Click through to find my post about finding the story of Coventree.

Ashlee is the author of The Word Changers, a story about a girl who falls into a storybook and finds herself replacing the princess. She comes to the disturbing realization that the princess deliberately escaped, but what was she escaping? Ashlee's short story "A Wish Made of Glass", an adaptation of the Cinderella theme, is coming out soon, and in honour of that she is doing a series of interviews with other authors of Cinderella rewrites. Fairy-tale lovers, you have been advised.
