I never planned on writing fantasy novels. Shoot, other than Arthurian Legend, Harry Potter and The Hobbit, I didn’t read fantasy. Fantasy was my brother’s realm. He’s the one who raved about The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy and Lord of the Rings. I’ve tried a thousand times to slog through Tolkien’s masterpieces and stopped around page 100 every time.
I’m not sure what changed. Maybe it was Karen Marie Moning. Or Jim Butcher. Or GRR Martin. I’m not sure. All I know is over the course of the last couple years I’ve gone from being a light reader of fantasy to someone who reads fantasy constantly.
So I guess it makes sense that I started writing a guardian angel mystery series last year. And it makes sense that the more I write, the more fantasy elements show up. I can’t wait to share Sharlene’s next book with readers. It’s in copy edits now, so it won’t be long.
Do you like fantasy novels? If so, which are your favorites? I need a new series since who knows when book 6 of Song of Ice and Fire will be out and Dresden’s done for a year.#
