Legendborn is the result of a handful of personal inspirations colliding in the best of ways. First and foremost, I was inspired by my own grief journey after the passing of my mother - we often look for stories in loss, and Legendborn is part of the story I told myself. There are lots of unexplained, magical experiences in my family history, specifically around the women in my family, and I folded these events together with inspiration from African-American folk magic to create Legendborn's #BlackGirlMagic mythology. I was also inspired by the legend of King Arthur, of course, but in particular the way that Susan Cooper extended the legend for her own contemporary fantasy series, the classic "The Dark is Rising Sequence."

I can't wait for everyone to visit the Legendborn world, which is not too far off from our own. ;-) (less)
