The Weaver Series

Where did you get the idea for the Weaver Series?

I like the idea of believing in something so strongly that it can come true.  In addition, I think the idea of a “do-over” appeals to all of us!

What is a Weaver?

Not a vampire, not a werewolf, and not a fairy.  Oh, and not a witch either.  Weavers are immortal and exist to make life more interesting, fair, or…unfair.  Have you ever had something happen that seemed impossible?  Maybe a Weaver made you do it!

How long have you been writing?

I can’t remember not writing.  It has always been my passion.

Who were your influences?

My dad was my strongest influence.  He was a writer as well.  He used to recite Edgar Allen Poe and Samuel Taylor Coleridge to me when I was little and he was the greatest storyteller!  It wasn’t until I was older that I realized he was reciting his favorite works.

Who are your favorite authors?

I have tons of favorites but a few are V.C. Andrews, Cassandra Clare, Holly Black, and Charlaine Harris.

What kind of music do you like?

I have very eclectic taste in music.  I love jazz, blues, and particularly bluegrass – but having two sons that are both insanely great guitarists, I find that they influence my interests too.  I like, Poets of the Fall, Mumford and Sons, and just about anything funky from the 80’s.

Who is your favorite character to write?

I like them all but if I had to pick a favorite, that would have to be Kess.
