Sarah Ettritch

Smashwords Interview

What type of stories do you write?
I write science fiction, fantasy, and mystery stories that feature strong female characters. My main characters are often lesbian. I enjoy exploring different worldviews, so worldviews play an important role in many of my stories.

By strong female characters, I don't mean women who use their physical strength to get themselves out of trouble. I mean women who stick to their principles. Also, the story is truly the woman’s story (or women's, depending. Many of my stories have more than one female main character). She isn’t there to play second fiddle to a male character or support him on his quest. It’s *her* story.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
I love putting together a puzzle without the help of a picture on a puzzle box lid. I'm a "write by the seat of my pants" writer, so when I sit down to write a story, all I have to work with are a bunch of disjointed scenes I've been seeing in my mind. I have no idea how they'll fit together. Most of the time, I know little about the main character(s). I discover the story and characters as I go. That's what makes it fun and magical for me. The roller coaster ride is exhilarating.
