“Yea,” Mary replied, “that’s them. Santos and Knox.” “What in the hell kind of romance novel names are those,”
Katrina Jackson, From Scratch

“Love is a combination of care, commitment, knowledge, responsibility, respect and trust.”
bell hooks, Communion: The Female Search for Love

“And once upon a time I wondered: Is writing epic fantasy not somehow a betrayal? Did I not somehow do a disservice to my own reality by paying so much attention to the power fantasies of disenchanted white men?

But. Epic fantasy is not merely what Tolkien made it.

This genre is rooted in the epic — and the truth is that there are plenty of epics out there which feature people like me. Sundiata’s badass mother. Dihya, warrior queen of the Amazighs. The Rain Queens. The Mino Warriors. Hatshepsut’s reign. Everything Harriet Tubman ever did. And more, so much more, just within the African components of my heritage. I haven’t even begun to explore the non-African stuff. So given all these myths, all these examinations of the possible… how can I not imagine more? How can I not envision an epic set somewhere other than medieval England, about someone other than an awkward white boy? How can I not use every building-block of my history and heritage and imagination when I make shit up?

And how dare I disrespect that history, profane all my ancestors’ suffering and struggles, by giving up the freedom to imagine that they’ve won for me.”
N.K. Jemisin

“Reading was not a fallback position for her but an ideal state of being.”
Laura Lippman, What the Dead Know

“Nowadays I know the true reason I read is to feel less alone, to make a connection with a consciousness other than my own.”
Zadie Smith, Changing My Mind: Occasional Essays

“Power is the ability not just to tell the story of another person, but to make it the definitive story of that person.”
Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
