Anna Erishkigal

Biography

Anna Erishkigal is an attorney who writes fantasy fiction under a pen-name so her colleagues don't question whether her legal pleadings are fantasy fiction as well. Much of law, it turns out, -is- fantasy fiction. Lawyers just prefer to call it 'zealously representing your client.'
.
Seeing the dark underbelly of life makes for some interesting fictional characters. The kind you either want to incarcerate, or run home and write about. In fiction, you can fudge facts without worrying too much about the truth. In legal pleadings, if your client lies to you, you look stupid in front of the judge.
.
At least in fiction, if a character becomes troublesome, you can always kill them off.

Smashwords Interview

When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
For fun I study Urban Gojo karate and also take a low-level gymnastics class (hey ... it's on my bucket list!!!). I also volunteer for our local CERT Team (Community Emergency Response Team) and also am a licensed ARES (Amateur Radio Emergency Services) ham radio operator who works to support our local public safety officials during disasters. I also volunteer a bit of time for our local Science Fiction & Fantasy convention, ARISIA (because who else is going to understand your urge to dress up as Wonder Woman?). And when I'm not working, I spend an ungodly amount of time schlepping my three elementary-to-middle school age children around to activities.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
Before I self-published, I used to find most of my books at the library or, occasionally, would go to the local Borders. These days I have more than I can read thanks to friends who are also authors self-publishing books who forward me their advance review copies, but I make myself hang out in non-author readers groups and soak up whatever other people are reading because 'author think' can be extremely limiting.

Our writing group meets 1x week at the local Barnes & Noble, so I buy several books there the old-fashioned way, but my FAVORITE place to buy actual physical copies of books is the local Salvation Army.
