What is the best way to describe an author who writes humorous fantasy?
 
Do we tell about bookshelves full of fantasy, science fiction, and paranormal books, his love of mythology, or the years he spent as dungeon master? Or is it more important to know his favorite player-character was a chaotic-good elf? What about that stack of old comic books he never seems to get rid of?

But there's a serious side too. The other half of his bookshelf is filled with books on management, marketing, computer programming, and financial analysis? What about his years as a hospital president, or the many businesses he created, his years as a stock trader? What about his early years counseling drug addicts?

I think, more than anything, I love to play with ideas. I like to pick something up and examine it from every angle. Many of our concepts are accepted without question. I love to twist them around and see if they still hold up.

For example, in the world of The Universe Builders, they think of the universes and the creatures they create as mere tools - toys even - to be discarded if they no longer meet the purpose for which they were created. So my protagonist is the one who asks questions like "How are the creatures we create any different from us? What is it that makes us special that they do not have?" It gives me a fun way to play with ideas and concepts without offending anyone.

Hi, Debbie.

I just love this hat. I have about 6-7 just like it. As to me resembling Terry Pratchett, I take that as a high compliment. He is the author that I try the hardest to emulate with my writing. It's amazing to me how many times reviewers comment on the similarity in writing style.

Please forgive my delay in responding, Debbi. But I wanted to put together a post while I was at it:

Creation Science 101


Gods create things. Universes, in fact.


[image error]It may sound complicated, but, as they say, ‘Magic, once explained, is merely science.’ The gods do it with three skills. They use willpower, visualization, and concentration. When we explain it, you’ll see creating things isn’t as complicated as it might sound.


First, consider willpower. Gods have a lot of it. You might n...
