I think the best thing of all about being a writer is getting to dwell for a time in worlds of wonder, walking beside our characters, living their lives, facing their trials.

There are two answers to this, because my current series has two parts.

1) A roleplaying game, run by my friend Mark Whipple. He made up the basic idea, the major characters (except for Rachel, Siggy, and the Princess, who were the player characters) and the overall plot.

2) The story needed a new background. My young son had come up with an idea of a magic school on the island of Roanoke, where the original colonists disappeared. I was not familiar with that area, so I made it a floating island and moved it to the Hudson Highlands in NY, because I love that area and it is almost as steeped with magic and lore as Great Britain. So it seemed like a perfect place for a school of magic.(less)

“I loved weather, all weather, not just the good kind. I loved balmy days, fearsome storms, blizzards, and spring showers. And the colors! Everyday brought something to be admired: the soft feathery patterns of cirrus clouds, the deep, dark grays of thunderheads, the lacy gold and peach of the early morning sunrise. The sky and its moods called to me.”
L. Jagi Lamplighter, Prospero Lost
