Rebecca Kim Wells is the author of Shatter the Sky and Storm the Earth (forthcoming in Fall 2020). When not writing, reading, or talking about writing or reading, she sells books at a fiercely independent bookstore in Massachusetts. She can also be found drinking tea, singing along to musicals, or playing soccer. (Usually not all at once.) If she were a hobbit, she would undoubtedly be a Took.

I talked about one of the specific inspirations in a different question, so I'll talk guiding principles here: I wanted to write an unapologetic bisexual heroine in a world where being queer is unremarkable. I wanted to write an adventure featuring a girl who is afraid of the world, but finds her strength when it counts--who was never told she was special, but proves her worth through her own grit and determination. Plus dragons, of course!(less)

(Kurlansky writes these really interesting micro-histories--histories of the world through a particular lense. His books are a really accessible way to pick up weird facts!) In the book he talked about entire towns that basically existed around the production and trade of salt. (Similar to some mining or gold towns.) I read that and started thinking about what would happen to those towns if one day the salt disappeared--how would the town decline? This was the direct inspiration for Ilvera, Maren's hometown, and I started building the story from there.(less)

Rebecca Kim Wells answered Goodreads's question: Rebecca Kim Wells
Recently I've been blowing through Kristen Lepionka's adult mystery series starting with The Last Place You Look--that would be a very good binge read, no matter the season. As for what's on my list for this upcoming summer... Maybe I'll finally f... See Full Answer
Rebecca Kim Wells answered Goodreads's question: Rebecca Kim Wells
Maybe the world of Dealing with Dragons? Although that's more about the characters than about the world itself. (I also would love to go into the world of Ella Enchanted or Tortall, but again, I'd basically just want to hang out with the character... See Full Answer

I'm basically awful at everything else that's creative except writing, so in a world where that's not the case, I'd be a photographer so that I could, hopefully, travel and get paid to see the world.
