It really depends on the publishers more than on me - I did intend to write that third book, but my US publisher didn't want to go on with the series. They asked me to start a new series instead, which was Shadowfell. I haven't ruled out writing Stela's story some time in the future, but right now I'm working on an adult series, Blackthorn & Grim, so the decision is a year or two in the future. Sorry I can't give a more definite answer. I do have the story for Wildwood book 3 all worked out!(less)

I guess modern day descendents of the Sevenwaters family would have different issues, because society has changed so much since the early medieval era when the story is set. But I think there are some universal challenges, such as finding your inner courage, and standing up for what you believe in, and understanding why other people do the things they do, that are still just as relevant to us all. As for the Otherworld, some of those descendents would believe in it and some wouldn't! :)(less)

“If a man has to say trust me, Gogu conveyed, it's a sure sign you cannot. Trust him, that is. Trust is a thing you know without words.”
Juliet Marillier, Wildwood Dancing

“He would have told her - he would have said, it matters not if you are here or there, for I see you before me every moment. I see you in the light of the water, in the swaying of the young trees in the spring wind. I see you in the shadows of the great oaks, I hear your voice in the cry of the owl at night. You are the blood in my veins, and the beating of my heart. You are my first waking thought, and my last sigh before sleeping. You are - you are bone of my bone, and breath of my breath.”
Juliet Marillier, Daughter of the Forest

So you do believe in... true love? she whispered.
I took a deep breath, I think I have to, I said, blinking back tears. Without it, we're all going nowhere.
Juliet Marillier, Wildwood Dancing
