FAE AND WITCHES AND GHOSTS - OH MY!
SPOTLIGHT ON BUZZ GUEST M. L. SPENCER! AUTHOR of the dark epic fantasy series THE RHENWARS SAGA! LET'S GENERATE A BUZZ!
My BUZZ GUEST today is award-winning author, teacher, and creator of the dark epic fantasy series THE RHENWARS SAGA.
In M. L. Spencer’s own words, “Welcome to the Rhenwars Saga, a darkly epic fantasy series that chronicles the turbulent battle between two conflicting ideologies of magic and the moral imperatives that drive them.”
Wow! I don’t know about you guys, but she had me at ‘epic fantasy series’ and ‘magic’!!
Book Two DARKMAGE of THE RHENWARS SAGA series is available on Amazon right now!
Will Darien hold fast to the moral constraints that shackle him?
Or will he abandon his principles and become a darkmage?
M. L. Spencer’s book DARKSTORM is the prequel to DARKMAGE and is listed as COMING SOON. Can’t wait!
M. L. Spencer has carved out some time for us to get to know her better by answering a few questions:
1. What drew you to writing?
I was always writing from a very young age. When I was in elementary school I wrote little books. I wrote my first novel-length manuscript when I was thirteen.
2. How long did it take you to create your first book?
I wrote the first draft of my novel Darkmage in forty days. It was insane. It just poured out of me. I was working full time as a middle school teacher and had two children under four. The novel was 230,000 words, so that’s averaging over 5000 words a day! I still can’t believe I did that.
3. How long did it take you to create the last?
My last novel, Darkstorm, took me about three months.
4. Do you prefer creating short stories, or novels?
I don’t do short stories very well. I don’t have short ideas. Which is really too bad, because it has handicapped me that my ideas don’t usually fit in industry-recommended lengths.
5. What kind of books do you enjoy reading?
I love reading mostly fantasy with a dash of horror. I am also a sucker for literary fiction and nonfiction.
6. Do you have a favorite author(s)?
Robert Jordan will always be my favorite author and my greatest inspiration.
7. Where is your favorite place to read?
8. You’re dressed to attend a Cosplay event. What are you wearing?
I would totally Cosplay any of my various MMO avatars. I am way into MMOs! Love Warcraft and GW2 the best!
9. When you were a child what did you always want to be when you grew up?
I always wanted to be a fantasy author. Seriously. I had no other aspirations until high school, when I started thinking that perhaps I should do something that would pay the bills.
10. Do you work well under stress?
I work very well under stress. I do not write well under stress, but then I never consider writing work.
11. What hobbies do you enjoy?
I love playing MMO games, playing music, painting and being outdoors in nature.
12. Pick 3 books and tell us why you loved them.
The Eye of the World by Robert Jordan – Jordan’s world is so expansive, vibrant and gripping. Truly one of the best world-builders that have ever lived.
Where the Red Fern Grows by Wilson Rawls– Had a huge impact on me as a child, and continues to inspire. Never have I encountered another work of fiction that could so thoroughly reduce me to tears.
The Shining by Stephen King – Just the name Stephen King creeps me out. His writing is viscerally wrenching. And yes, that is supposed to be a compliment.
13. Who is your favorite Superhero?
Wonder Woman. She is my spirit animal.
14. What magical place that you’ve read about would you like to visit?
Xanadu. Always wanted to check that place out!
Thank you M. L. Spencer for sharing with us today. I really enjoyed your answers. Just a question--does anyone else have the WONDER WOMAN theme song stuck in their head right now?
