Those Who Hold the Threads
fantasy weaves myth into current technology
I do a lot of research. For Threads, I had to know a lot more than I did about the myths, certainly, but also some astronomy and most of all computer programming. In that case, I was coming from zero. I always have a loose general idea about the shape of a book when I begin, but I never know exact details or how it will end. These evolve as I go. I have loved working both with fantasy and with myth.
