TheWriter asked Laurell K. Hamilton:
I run a blog with some ladies and we named our blog after your book! It's Word Wenches Guilty Pleasure! I find your writing fascinating, I read the entire Anita Blake series in 1 1/2 weeks. My question is have you always known you would be a writer? Or did it happen later in life? Thank you so much for your remarkable stories. I absolutely love your work and can't wait to meet you someday!
Laurell K. Hamilton Honored to be a part of your naming system. *laughs* I started trying to write at about age twelve, and finished my first short story at fourteen. I know this because for years all my protagonists were exactly my age. I grew out of it, but even Anita started out as the age I was when I wrote her first short story, "Those Who Seek Forgiveness". But by fourteen I was determined to be a writer, by seventeen I was collecting my first rejection slips. I toyed with being a wildlife biologist, but in the end writing won. Though I think my biology degree helps make my vampires and shapeshifters more realistic.

Tracy Paglione asked Laurell K. Hamilton:
I have heard that if you could you wouldn't write about JC . Is this true? If so, why? To me Micah and Nathaniel are too accommodating to Anita most of the time. JC tells her the way reality is whether she wants to hear it or not and we all need someone like that. Also Asher is becoming a real pain in the rump.
