Rainbow Rowell
“Sharing a room with the person you want most is like sharing a room with an open fire.

He's constantly drawing you in. And you're constantly stepping too close. And you know it's not good--that there is no good--that there's absolutely nothing that can ever come of it.

But you do it anyway.
And then...
Well. Then you burn.”
Rainbow Rowell, Carry On

Lloyd Alexander
“We don't need to have just one favorite. We keep adding favorites. Our favorite book is always the book that speaks most directly to us at a particular stage in our lives. And our lives change. We have other favorites that give us what we most need at that particular time. But we never lose the old favorites. They're always with us. We just sort of accumulate them.”
Lloyd Alexander

Gillian Flynn
“Yes, I am finally a match for Amy. The other morning I woke up next to her, and I studied the back of her skull. I tried to read her thoughts. For once I didn't feel like I was staring into the sun. I'm rising to my wife's level of madness. Because I can feel her changing me again: I was a callow boy, and then a man, good and bad. Now at last I'm the hero. I am the one to root for in the never-ending war story of our marriage. It's a story I can live with. Hell, at this point, I can't imagine my story without Amy. She is my forever antagonist.

We are one long frightening climax.”
Gillian Flynn, Gone Girl

Christie Purifoy
“We must plant our dreams in real earth. We must dirty our hands. It's the only way. Whether we dream of planting flower gardens or churches, ever dream needs a place in which to take root and grow. Every dream needs a home.”

J.R.R. Tolkien
“It's like in the great stories, Mr. Frodo. The ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger they were. And sometimes you didn't want to know the end. Because how could the end be happy? How could the world go back to the way it was when so much bad had happened? But in the end, it’s only a passing thing, this shadow. Even darkness must pass. A new day will come. And when the sun shines it will shine out the clearer. Those were the stories that stayed with you. That meant something, even if you were too small to understand why. But I think, Mr. Frodo, I do understand. I know now. Folk in those stories had lots of chances of turning back, only they didn’t. They kept going, because they were holding on to something. That there is some good in this world, and it's worth fighting for.”
J.R.R. Tolkien

Terri Windling
“I love so many books and authors that it's hard to name just a few, but I'm always particularly excited when new books by Alice Hoffman, John Crowley, Joanne Harris, Elizabeth Knox, and Patricia McKillip come out. (And, of course, books by Ellen [Kushner], and Holly [Black], and the rest of the Bordertown crew!) I'm impatiently looking forward to Susanna Clarke's next book too.

Aside from writing and reading, my favorite things to do are paint, walk in the countryside with my dog, and listen to music -- especially when it's live and it's played by friends. Fortunately there's a lot of live music where I live.”
Terri Windling

Matthew Catania
“What's my favorite part that I've written? That’s like asking me to choose which of my kids is least ugly!”
Matthew Catania

Christie Purifoy
“Two years before our arrival at Maplehurst, we had left the Midwest eager for new jobs, milder weather, and a house of our own with a real backyard. We were unprepared for the enormity of our losses. Good friends. Close-knit community. A meaningful connection with the work of our minds and our hands.
There was one lost thing, in particular. It was such a natural part of our prewilderness lives that I only ever recognized it after it was gone. In our northern city, we had lived a seasonal rhythm of summer festivals and winter sledding, spring baseball games and autumn apple picking. Our moments and our months were distinguished by the color of the trees, deep red or spring green, and the color of the lake, sparkling and playful in summer, menacing and dull in winter.
These things were the beautiful, sometimes harsh, but always rhythmic backdrop in our days. Time was like music. It had a melody. In the wilderness, the only thing that differentiated one season from the next was my terrible winter asthma. Without time's music, I became aimless and disconnected, like a child's lost balloon.”
Christie Purifoy, Roots and Sky: A Journey Home in Four Seasons

S.C. Stephens
“«Hola. Por si he sido tan torpe de no haberte llamado aún, quiero que sepas que no es porque no te eche de menos. Sí te echo de menos. Seguramente, el retraso tendrá que ver con Griffin… El muy idiota dará problemas durante toda la gira, lo sé, pero por lo menos dejará de desnudarte con la mirada una temporada… Eso es cosa mía. Y por si nunca te lo había dicho, lo hago siempre. Cuando pasas a mi lado, imagino tus caderas desnudas bajo mis dedos. Cuando te inclinas para darme una cerveza, imagino tus pechos firmes, tus pezones duros pidiendo mi boca a gritos. Te preguntas por qué estoy siempre tan excitado, y te lo voy a decir. Tu cuerpo me quema. La caricia de tus dedos sobre mi piel enciende mi deseo. Tu aliento me cubre de una pasión abrasadora. Todo en ti es sensual, y tú no lo sabes en absoluto. Cuando me miras con esos ojos ahumados, desnudándome como te desnudo yo a ti, haces que mi sangre fluya como un torrente, y te deseo tanto… Sé que, esté donde esté en este momento, estaré muriéndome de deseo y que albergaré una profunda ansia, casi dolorosa… porque estaré pensando en ti. Los días no merecen la pena hasta que no estoy dentro de ti. Sólo me siento completo con tu cuerpo rodeando el mío. Pero no pienses que lo que siento por ti se limita sólo al sexo y a una reacción física. No… Es mucho más. Te has metido dentro de mí de tal forma que me has dejado herido y vulnerable. Estar contigo, hacerte el amor sólo es la muestra tangible de lo que siento por ti. Sé que me he convertido en uno de esos idiotas enamorados y balbuceantes, pero al fin y al cabo todo se reduce a dos palabras que apenas logran expresar lo que siento… Te amo.»”
S.C. Stephens, Effortless

Lisa Kleypas
“It’s like your whole life you’ve been falling toward the earth, until the moment someone catches
you. And you realize that somehow you’ve caught her at the same time. And together, instead of
falling, you might be able to fly.” The ghost went to the discarded clipping and stared down at the
photo, riveted. “She’s a beaut, isn’t she?”
“Sure,” Alex said automatically, although there was nothing of Zoë’s sparkling allure in the
photo, only a hint of resemblance.”
Lisa Kleypas, Dream Lake
