Describe your book Reborn (Scourge of Kallandin) in ten words or less
Reborn == fantasy that doesn’t pull punches.
Where or how did you come up with the idea for your story?
Reborn started out as a completely snarky idea where the hero was actually the villain. If one were to sneak a peak at my Scrivener file with all of my development information, they’d find that I was poking fun at the genre.
The actual book, however, is anything but. It’s mean, violent, dirty dark fantasy.
Which of your characters is closest to your heart and why?
I love the heroine of Reborn, Morgaine. She has a knack for seeing through the muck that everyone else struggles with.
Morgaine is smart, a little sarcastic, and determined. Nothing is going to stop her, even if it means doing that which is impossible.
If you weren’t a full-time author, what other career would you be in and why?
If I weren’t a writer, I’d be developing video games. However, I’ve already proven to be a terrible coder so I don’t think that would go well. I’d likely end up writing for games, which would mean I was writer… just for video games instead of books. It always comes back to writing for me.
Or maybe I’d be a cat behaviorist.
Tell us about an upcoming book or project you’re excited about
I’m currently juggling two different series: the Debate Team (Omni is the first book) and the Scourge of Kallandin (Reborn being the first). In tried-and-true fashion, I’m taking turns writing one of each.
The follow-up to Omni is 75% complete. Where Omni was a little bit sarcastic and light, the sequel is turning out to be more serious, with more development on some of the characters who didn’t get as much screen time in the first book. I’m jazzed about where this one is going and I can hardly wait to get to the third book in the series. I have plans for that one! Oh yes, plans.
Bonus Question! Fill in the blank: If you like ___, you’ll probably like my book too!
RA Salvatore (who is awesome and a nice guy)
