A. J. Hackwith is (almost) certainly not an ink witch in a hoodie. She's a queer writer of fantasy and science fiction living in the Pacific Northwest, and writes sci-fi romance as Ada Harper. She is a graduate of the Viable Paradise writer's workshop and her work appears in Uncanny Magazine and assorted anthologies. Summon A.J. at your own peril with an arcane circle of fountain pens and classic RPGs, or you can find her on Twitter and other dark corners of the Internet. ...more

Hi Ashok!

A little backstory: I wrote THE LIBRARY OF THE UNWRITTEN first, then wrote two romances as Ada Harper while I was despairing of ever getting LIBRARY published. (Romance is good for despair, it is known.)

I chose to use two pen names just to help out readers: while I might include plenty of romance as a sub-plot in my fantasy books as A. J. Hackwith, Ada Harper is reserved purely for romance-centric books (and usually with a higher heat level with sex scenes). (less)

“Claire lived by the firm moral philosophy that one could never have too many pockets, too many books, or too much tea.”
A.J. Hackwith, The Library of the Unwritten

“Stories can die. Of course they can. Ask any author who's had an idea wither in their head, fail to thrive and bear fruit. Or a book that spoke to you as a child but upon revisiting it was silent and empty. Stories can die from neglect, from abuse, from rot. Even war, as Shakespeare warned, can turn books to graves.
We seek to preserve the books, of course. But we forget the flip side of that duty: treasure what we have. Honor the stories that speak to you, that give you something you need to keep going. Cherish stories while they are here.
There's a reason the unwritten live on something as fragile as paper.”
A.J. Hackwith, The Library of the Unwritten

“Forgiven doesn't mean no regret. We'll always regret the wrongs we've done. It just means you're not punishing yourself for it.”
A.J. Hackwith, The Library of the Unwritten
