I am delighted to have been invited to be a guest blogger on the brilliant Blue Jinni Media website, chatting about how I use history and folklore in my fiction writing. It was interesting to actually sit back and consider how I write. Most of the time, I either have a written plan or an outline in my head and simply crack on with the writing.
I talk about WITCH and also about my new title, a collection of fictional creation myths for the world I am creating in my High Fantasy series The Fire-Eyes Chronicles, which you can check out here. The creation myths feature some familiar aspects of Norse, Swedish and British folklore, providing an anchor for the reader in an unfamiliar world of elves, dragons, goblins and trolls.
Check out my blog post and, while you're there, have a look at the rest of the site - there are some great posts and podcasts to enjoy from hosts Dedra L Stevenson and Rodney Harper, as well as guest authors.
