Delaney Green lives in the American Midwest with a black cat and a Golden Retriever. When she's not writing, you'll likely find her working in the garden, making art in the garage, or coaching other writers. She is the author of Jem, a Girl of London, which won a North Street Book Prize in 2015; Jem, a Fugitive from London, a Foreword Indies Finalist for Young Adult Fiction in 2016; and Jem, a Foreigner in Philadelphia, which, like all the JEM books, shows that it’s O.K. to be different, that adventures can fall into your lap if you pay attention. Green's short fiction includes "Tsunami Surprise," featured in Murder at the Beach, a mystery and detective fiction anthology published for Bouchercon 2014; “SÁ an Bhrú: The Passage Home” which ap ...more

Okay, okay--I'll go with my gut response: Buckkeep, Robin Hobb's world. I'd prowl around the castle and the town, travel on foot to the Mountain Kingdom, see if I could travel through the mountains to Kelsingra, travel down the Rain Wild River, then take ship in Bingtown and sail around the Pirate Isles, around Clerres, and up to the OutIslands.

But…moreI don't get writer's block, although I do get mentally weary after I write for eight or nine hours, so I usually have to stop and rest my brain. But when I sit down to write, words are there. Always. I think the sheer act of picking up a pen and putting it to paper SUMMONS words. As far as JEM is concerned, the entire saga of seven books came loud and clear and strong. Jem starts out as a child, but I saw her story from the beginning clear through to the end. I WILL say that sometimes I get to a point in the story where I can feel that it needs to bubble away on its own in my unconscious for a while, so then I work on something else: a story, a poem, my garden, my house. In addition, I've got another book in another genre that I'd really like to get to soon. (Remember the King under a spell in "Once Upon a Mattress" who can't talk? The spell gets broken, and somebody says "THE KING TALKS!" The King says, "And I've got a lot to say!" I didn't give myself time to write for many years, but now that my dry spell is done, I'VE got a lot to say.) (less)
