“Emily A. Duncan was born and raised in Ohio and works as a youth services librarian. She received a Master’s degree in library science from Kent State University, which mostly taught her how to find obscure Slavic folklore texts through interlibrary loan systems. When not reading or writing, she enjoys playing copious amounts of video games and dungeons and dragons. She is represented by Thao Le of the Sandra Dijkstra Literary Agency.”

Something wrong with your animals? Is the dvorovoi upset with you? And so on and so forth.

In Polish folklore everything is probably vampires.

There's a maintaining of superstition and old magic in Eastern European folktales and culture that is deeply fascinating to me. I like playing in that sandbox. (less)

BUT I wrote the sequel while working a full time youth services librarian job and it is! hard! I have to manage my time carefully and I have a very... structured social life. there is an 11 day stretch of last year that I don't remember because i hit a deadline and was churning out 3-4k words every day just in a desperate attempt to finish.

So, I'm not going to say it's easy because it's really hard! But it's absolutely possible, and it's nice if your coworkers know that your brain is melting because of writing and cut you a little slack lol. (less)
