Question to Christa: “Many people dismiss the genre as pure escapism—and nothing more. What would you say is the purpose of fantasy and sci-fi?”

“My favorite part about writing fantasy/scifi is that even without trying, my stories mean something. Whether they are a reflection of conquering inner demons or finding one’s true identity, I can bring forward these amazing philosophical revelations while adding the icing of fantastical places. This way the reader enjoys being swept along the story, but also ends up really wondering about themselves, their lives, and the universe.”

I am so honored to announce that I was chosen to be the Author of the Day, featured on the ManyBooks website!
