About this author

From the author: I use Goodreads to keep track of books I've read. I don't use it to troll reviews of books I've written. Know that you can talk about my books safely here. Love them or hate them, I won't show up in comments to take issue or take offense. I'm honored you're engaging with my work (thank you!) and believe the best way I can express my gratitude is by staying out of the way so that you can continue to talk about it, unhindered.

Janni Lee Simner lives in the Arizona desert, where the plants know how to bite and the dandelions really do have thorns; in spite of these things--or maybe because of them--she's convinced she lives in one of the most stunning places on earth.

Janni has published three novels for yo...more

While the very ending of this book felt just a little muddled to me, I didn't much care, because the journey was so, so very lovely. This is the sort of lyrical, mythic book that's just hard enough to find that it always feels like something special,...more

“Blessed are the powers that grant me magic.
I promise to use their gift well.
To help mend my world.
To help mend all worlds.
And should I forget to mend,
Should I refuse to mend,
Still I will remember
To do no harm.”
Janni Lee Simner, Faerie Winter

“Sometimes what we want or don't want doesn't matter in the end. Sometimes magic doesn't listen after all.”
Janni Lee Simner, Bones of Faerie

“And for adults, the world of fantasy books returns to us the great words of power which, in order to be tamed, we have excised from our adult vocabularies. These words are the pornography of innocence, words which adults no longer use with other adults, and so we laugh at them and consign them to the nursery, fear masking as cynicism. These are the words that were forged in the earth, air, fire, and water of human existence, and the words are:

Love. Hate. Good. Evil. Courage. Honor. Truth.”
Jane Yolen, Touch Magic: Fantasy, Faerie & Folklore in the Literature of Childhood

“This is. And thou art. There is no safety. There is no end. The word must be heard in silence. There must be darkness to see the stars. The dance is always danced above the hollow place, above the terrible abyss.”
Ursula K. Le Guin, The Farthest Shore

“There's lots of kinds of chains. You can't see most of them, the one's that bind folks together. But people build them, link by link. Sometimes the links are weak, snap like this one did. That's another funny thing, now that I think of it. Sometimes when you mend a chain, the place where you fix it is strongest of all.”
Bruce Coville, Into the Land of the Unicorns

“So he decided he would never listen to anybody he knew? That's just like someone in a fairy tale.'

Knowing he had given his trust amiss, how could he bestow it again?'

That's foolish. Did he expect never to make any mistakes?”
Pamela Dean, The Whim of the Dragon

“So the Dark did a simple thing. They showed the maker of the sword his own uncertainty and fear. Fear of having done the wrong thing--fear that having done this one great thing, he would never again be able to accomplish anything of great worth--fear of age, of insufficiency, of unmet promise. All such great fears, that are the doom of people given the gift of making, and lie always somewhere in their minds.”
Susan Cooper, Silver on the Tree
