Smashwords Interview

What are you working on next?
I am currently working on two different projects. The first is the third book in the Elden Forest Series, continuing the magical adventures of Tobin and Darcie. The working title for that novel is Magician's Mirrors and it will be out in November 2014.
The second projects I'm working on is a YA Steampunk trilogy. I'm very excited about this new trilogy because it will be a new genre for me, as an author.
Who are your favorite authors?
I really love Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time series. A friend introduced me to the series when I was 15 and I fell in love with the epic fantasy story. I love the strong women and all of the amazing detail of the fantastic world Jordan created.
I also love Maria Snyder; both her Study series, and the Glass series are favourites. Snyder is such a creative author, and yet I still find her writing so accessible.
Jonathan Stroud is probably my favourite YA and MG author. His Bartimaeus trilogy is brilliant! I especially love his creative use of footnotes and the anti-hero character of Bartimaeus.
