Physics makes Belinda’s brain hurt, while quadratics cause her eyes to cross and any mention of probability equations will have her running for the door. Nonetheless, she loves watching documentaries about the natural world, biology, space, history and technology.

She’s also a sucker for a fast horse, a faster computer and superhero movies. When she’s not doing the horse, computer or superhero thing, Belinda writes science fiction (emphasis on the fiction), where she loves to write about butt-kicking girls (and guys) who blow stuff up.

Belinda Crawford Not yet. The manuscript has just gone to the publisher though so I should know soon. I’ll let you know as soon as I do!

For me, writer's block is just a symptom of something else. Like right now, I'm writing the middle chapter of Hero 3 and it's like pulling teeth and every word is an effort to get on the page. Some might call that writer's block, I call it a sign that something in this chapter (or a chapter previous to it) isn't working. All I have to do is figure out what that something is and my case of writer's block is gone.

How you go about finding that something though, that's another question.

If you let yourself think of writer's block as a mysterious thing that comes along without reason, you can't do anything about it. On the other hand, see it as a symptom and there's always a cure.(less)

A single slip. A night of terror.

Elouise is a dutiful wife, a good mother, and a witch, but in this time of superstition, when men of power incite fear and the slightest hint of witchcraft invites the wrath of the mob, she is forced to hide her magic. She hides it well, unt

“Just because they say it, doesn't mean you have to believe it.”
Belinda Crawford, Hero

“All my life, everyone has used my 'ilness' as an excuse to take my choices away. I've been locked up, told what to eat, who I can be friends with, where I can go to school. They even forced those damn meds down my throat." She paused, breathing hard. "It's my life. Even if I'm sick, I'm the only one who should get to choose what I do and how I do it.”
Belinda Crawford, Hero

“Why do I feel like this is a ploy?"
"You're paranoid?"
"Or," she said as she walked back around her desk and sat, "maybe I just know my daughter too well.”
Belinda Crawford, Hero

“The first draft is your “vomit onto the keyboard” draft, wherein your task is to simply keep moving and outrun your doubts.”

“They'd all been crackpots back then, those first-gen colonists, but Woolsey had topped them all. No one else would have thought to mix a little bit of rat with a little bit of leopard and a whole lot of alien to create something big and strong and scary enough to walk the surface with impunity.”
