All my life I’ve enjoyed getting lost in the amazing places that books provide. I think that Science Fiction and Fantasy, more than any other genre, feeds the creative need in me. I love to imagine, I love to daydream. I have an intrinsic need to experience new adventures, learn new things, and to do something creative.
Writing Science Fiction and Fantasy allows me to simultaneously engage in so many of the things that I love. I get to imagine new worlds, experience amazing adventures, create entirely new species and previously unheard of technology. In the realm of speculative fiction there are no boundaries. There are no historical facts or figures, save the ones that I invent. If I can imagine an idea, and explain it clearly through my writing, incredible new worlds can exist.
I have been so immersed in editing over the past several months that I began to wonder if I would be able to come up with any new ideas once it was time to write again. Now that novel number two (working title Searcher) is in the hands of my agent, the time has come to put pencil to paper…and I have an idea. I can’t wait to see where it will take me.
