It's weird going through a town where you lived for 20 years. Everything is familiar and yet has that alien feel of a place which is no longer home.

Hey, need someone to write some copy? I'm also a freelance copywriter, specialising in publishing and books. Here's an example of some copy I wrote for a lavish edition of Neil Gaiman's American Gods

We're not even getting a series of Game of Thrones this year & yet I have already seen two lists of 'while you're waiting, why not read these epic fantasies by men & Robin Hobb' suggestions. Brief thoughts on women writers being erased from SFF - again

How do you create rules in yr magical systems? 'I don't go for the chosen one trope, where your main character can use power with no consequences. My main character has limitless power, but has to sacrifice her empathy and humanity to gain it'

'There has been a great call for more diverse voices in fantasy in recent times. And I am feeling optimistic that people are waking up to this issue. Readers, creators and the industry seem all more welcoming of this...though of course progress needs to be made' -

'It's easy to fall into unhealthy stereotypes when writing fantasy. And fantasy is very 'tropey' anyway. Awareness of what you are doing and why is the most important thing...' -

'There's a great deal of nostalgia in fantasy for lost golden ages.LoTR spawned many immitators but harking after the past can be problematic. I like to modernise a little, while retaining that sense of wonder. And I like women to have adventures in my stories' -

"We are unwilling to spin out our awaking thoughts into the phantasms of sleep, which often continueth precogitations; making cables of cobwebs, and wildernesses of handsome groves." (Thomas Browne on sleep & dreams in The Garden of Cyrus, 1658. Such prose...)
