Anne Gazzolo asked Jeff Wheeler:
Hi, I am drawn to your books from the great covers, that you are a Christian and have a zine of clean stories. All well and good. But I am a Ricardian, so I am nervous that your villain in Queen's Poisoner etc. is patterned after him. If just after Shakespeare's false interpretation, then I can handle that, and I look forward to reading your books. Do you think the bard was right or wrong? Thanks and God bless! :)
Jeff Wheeler Hi Anne: thanks for your kind words. I'm not sure how many fantasy writers even know what a Ricardian is, but having been one myself since college, it made me smile. I went back to many of the primary sources I used on my master's thesis for these books as well as re-read one of my favorite novels, The Sunne in Splendour, by Sharon Kay Penman. I don't think you'll be upset with many creative liberties I took with the story. Shakespeare was a brilliant man and his play is excellent and full of drama. But it was entertainment not historical truth...as are my books! Loyaulté me Lie...

Garrett asked Jeff Wheeler:
Hey Jeff, I just finished The Poisoner's Enemy and loved your work, like usual. The end left me with many questions though and wondered if you would may be adding another Ankarette prequel at some point to fill in the gaps? Or maybe I need to reread The KingFountain series again because it's been awhile.

When writing the Muirwood trilogy, did you original plans change. I read somewhere that you were planning on having Sowe go with Lia and Colvin in book one. How would that turn out? Also, when you were first introducing Scareseth, did you know he was going to come back again and again?
Thanks!!! (hide spoiler)]
