Chele Cooke has just posted an interview I did with her for her Sci-Festival, a series of blog posts interviewing authors of Science Fiction & Fantasy.

How did you get into writing Sci-Fi/Fantasy?
I’ve been an avid reader of SFF since I was a child (I can well remember when paperbacks first became popular, and Ace doubles hit the local stores).
As a writer, what I like about Fantasy, in particular, is that you can make it quite as character-driven as you care to. In some ways, it shares with Westerns the notion that a man’s character is everything, and with Science Fiction the notion that there are innumerable new worlds of wonder held together by consistent rules that we can explore. Anything is possible in the Fantasy genre, and the stakes can be larger than life.
