The answer really comes down to writing style. When I write a book, I don't outline at all. I get an idea in my head, I think about it for a bit, and then I start writing and see where the idea takes me. In the case of Stolen Songbird, the idea was the setting. I had a dream about a city buried with rubble, and the story grew out of questions I asked myself about the place. Who would live there? How would they survive? Why would they choose to stay? The trolls came into being as a result of those answers, so it was more a matter of the story needing to be about them than a conscious decision on my part to write about them. Hopefully that makes sense!(less)

Due to the series moving from Strange Chemistry to Angry Robot, they are still figuring out where to fit me into their schedule. I'm hoping to know more in the next couple months, and when I do, I'll let everyone know!(less)

“I think it is our nature to believe evil always has an ugly face,” he said, ignoring my question. “Beauty is supposed to be good and kind, and to discover it otherwise is like a betrayal of trust. A violation of the nature of things.”
Danielle L. Jensen , Stolen Songbird

“I cannot stop the world from moving. All I can do is be prepared for when it does.”
Danielle L. Jensen, Stolen Songbird

“Dying was and easy thing to accomplish, effortless in its agony. It was living that was hard, requiring endless toil and labor, and for all one's efforts, it could be stolen in an instant.”
Danielle L. Jensen, Stolen Songbird
