Karen Tucker asked Maria V. Snyder:

I just love your writing - when I pick up one of your books, I know I won't want to put it down until I've finished. Do you plan your books in detail, or do you start writing and see where your characters take you?

Maria V. Snyder Hi Karen! I'm glad my books are hard to put down :). I don't plan my books in detail - I have a general idea of where the story starts and where I want it to go, but I discover the details as I write and if I don't end up where I thought, that's okay, too. I have to write a synopsis for my editor to approve before I start a book, however she's learned not to get too attached to that synopsis because the finished book never matches it!
