I was so pleased with how it all went! We had a standing room only crowd (which I so totally did not expect—I love you guys). And The King’s English sold all but six of the copies of the book they brought (which I have signed, so if you hurry you might still be able to get a signed copy through them). Read More

One of the reasons I choose to write fantasy is because I want to play in this grown-up fairy tale sandbox with Mr. Tolkien. But I don't want to play in Mr. Tolkien's sandbox, I want a sandbox of my very own.

I'm just peering at history and myth through a keyhole that looks out on the same sweeping vista he found so inspiring, and which I, too, am enchanted by. Read More
