M. H. Woodscourt


Writer of fantasy, magic weaver, dragon rider! Having spent the past 20 years devotedly writing fantasy, it's safe to say M. H. Woodscourt is now more fae than human. The Paradise Series wasn't her first completed work, but it's been around for so long, it's practically her teenage son, guiding the rest of her fledgeling children along a merry, arduous, questionable path. All of her fantasy worlds connect with each other in a broad Universe; forged with love, sadism, and no small measure of blood, sweat, and tears. When she's not writing, she's napping or reading a book with a mug of hot cocoa close at hand.

Smashwords Interview

What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
My stories! I know that sounds cliched, but it's still true. I look forward to a fresh mind and a new day to tackle my next bit of novel, whether it's plotting, writing, editing, or final formats. There's nothing that makes me happier than bringing a story to life!
What are your five favorite books, and why?
I'm going to stick to books within the fantasy genre, because otherwise it's too hard to narrow down.

1. The Prydain Chronicles by Lloyd Alexander. (We're gonna count this as one book, okay? Okay.) Fun, imaginative, quirky, thought-provoking, and groundbreaking in its era - what's NOT to love?
2. Covenants by Lorna Freeman. Rabbit (MC) is adorable, sarcastic, talented, flawed, and all-around the perfect catch. Eh, Rabbit? Plus, Freeman's world-building is fantastic and divine.
3. Elantris by Brandon Sanderson. Less RPG-esque than his later titles, I found this one more compelling and the characters more relatable than some. I enjoyed his world-building and magic system as well.
4. Memory, Sorrow and Thorn by Tad Williams. Classic, intricate, and compelling.
5. Lord of the Rings. My first love in fantasy and second to none. NONE.
(I saved the best for last, but the others are in no particular order of preference.)
