Birth of 'The Goosle'

Kaaron Warren is running a great series called 'Sparks' over at her blog, all about how different authors' stories/novels got started, the things that set them off, started them wondering.

She's just now put up my spark, which is the story, simple enough, of how my Hansel-and-Gretel story 'The Goosle' began. How one small dictionary entry could turn into so much unpleasantness...I know, it's amazing, isn't it?

I would love to learn some of the interests that inspire authors, whenever I read a book such as a series I always wonder how they came up with it. Especially a series where everything comes together in the end.

You should definitely go over to Kaaron's site (see the link in the post), and have a look at the 'Sparks' series of posts from different authors. You should also look at Justine Larbalestier's blog, where she has talked quite a bit about her Magic or Madness trilogy.

My pleasure! I'm always fascinated by what kicks off a story for other authors, too. Best wishes, Margo.
