Y A Fantasy

Some of my writing buds have asked me why I write YA fantasy. That’s almost a circular sort of question. Y A FANTASY…WHY A FANTASY….get it?

Okay so, ahem.

I write fantasy because it was the first sort of book I ever read that appealed to my strange sense of adventure as a child. Reading took over my life, and fantasy enveloped me. It’s what I like the most. I have written a lot of other stuff in my life, but I always come back to this. I love mystical creatures, and magic systems, and hapy endings. I – just- love- it.

While I read a lot of fantasy that is not necessarily YA – I love YA fantasy the most. It’s all escapism, but sometimes I guess getting back to my roots is sort of cool. No one “gets” fantasy like a kid. And writing it, I feel like I can get on that level. I can imagine with the best out there.

So there ya have it.

Nothing against romance, mystery, and other genres. Just … for me… fantasy is the best.
