Sidney Maris Hargrave


Sidney Maris Hargrave is a sentient bag of curly fries running wild through the swamps of Virginia, emerging once every two months to wreak havoc on unfortunate passers-by. All writing is done on the finest paper made of swamp grass and written in tree sap, and all proceeds will be donated to local faeries, because curly fries have no need of such things.

Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
I was eleven, and at the time, utterly besotted with the Harry Potter books. My grandmother sent me the link to the Warner Bros. website, which in 2001 was actually very popular, and I was immediately hooked. Someone had, in their signature, a link to a fanfic, which was my first experience with it. I, who'd always had the ideas for stories, suddenly realized that I could put them down and people could read them. It was really exciting!
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I've moved around constantly, my entire life, and I think the longest I've ever spent in any one residence was probably about three years! It's never bothered me, though, because I've always spent most of my time reading and drawing and exploring, so it's always been an adventure. I like to think that this means I have a better grasp on the idea of transitioning from one world to another, and to sudden changes that you don't really understand.

And, I dunno. It's really very fun, going to places you've never been. I try to incorporate that into my stories when I can.
