I write fantasy because, well, I believe in magic. From those negligible every day moments when a smile changes a stranger’s mood, to those random acts of kindness that alter the course of another’s life – magic surrounds us
at every turn.

I've been writing practically all my life – reading even longer. The first fantasy book I remember devouring was Mio My Son by Astrid Lindgren. The story must have transformed me because I’ve been all about Twilight Zone, Outer Limits, Stephen King and Dean Koontz ever since. I suppose I’ve never lost my childhood fascination with the wonder of “what if?”

Since I grew up to be an author, writing gives me the luxury of morphing run-of-the-mill magic into bigger-than-life characters with problems and powers t

Then I resorted to getting up from the keyboard and walking around, maybe have a snack. But a year or so ago, I saw post from a writer (which came by way of another writer) who said that sometimes writer's block means that you're working on the wrong part of your story. Or something like that. So now when I get stuck, I look at the story overall and ask myself if this should be some other character's scene or if I'm being true to the story. This approach has made a huge difference in my productivity. Even though I do still like taking a break to stare out the window from time to time. (less)

My kids don't blink when I start talking about my characters like they're real life friends or co-workers. Better yet, I totally understand the kids' fascination with all things fantasy and sci-fi. (We NEVER debate over movies.) Dreams - even the craziest ones - never go to waste. They can always find a home in a story line. But maybe there is a best thing. When I was little I wanted to be a writer. And that dream came true. I still find that fact very cool.(less)

This will be my last entry on the Blogger site. At least it looks that way as of now. The platform no longer works with iOS and - face it - I like to post and edit from my phone as much as anyone else. So, I'm moving my blog over to my web site at www.stefanieworth.com/blog. Come hang out with me there!

I found it interesting the way the story seemed to fold into itself with layers of memories and "unmemories." A compelling fantasy. It left me questioning. I like that.
