Part of The Writer’s Life Series
JH: Writers write for many different reasons, but there’s one reason we don’t usually consider when we start a novel. Shanna Swendson discusses this unexpected question every writer should ask when considering a new idea.
Shanna Swendson earned a journalism degree from the University of Texas but decided it was more fun to make up the people she wrote about and became a novelist. She’s written a number of fantasy novels for teens and adults, including the Enchanted, Inc. series and the Rebel Mechanics series. She devotes her spare time to reading, knitting, and music. Her newest novel is the paranormal mystery Interview with a Dead Editor.
