Life is about making adjustments to new things. When people stop learning, they die. And I'm learning more and more as the years go on. "The best teacher, failure is," Grand Master Yoda says in Star Wars, and after my fair share of failures (of course, I think it was a little more than a fair share) I'm trying to understand readers a little more. I've always had a story--but it's important to communicate that story to people who might not be expecting to listen to it.
Now planning Temmark Osteraith. So fun--going to love working with Amethyst, her gang of friends, a trio of weird brothers from a super-snobby elevated class, and the creepy boy who has a very serious crush on Amethyst.
Life is so funnnnnn.
I live surrounded by cultivated fields that rapidly give way to wild flowers, wild plants, and wild life. I get most of my ideas while drifting innocuously around my house and some of those ideas get into print.
