Talking with Author Anne Leonard about Writing Fantasy, Dragons, and Jane Austen!

This afternoon I have a wonderfully interesting interview with Moth and Spark debut author Anne Leonard, in which we have a great time discussing writing fantasy for adult readers, how Jane Austen configures into her fantasy world, and how much she likes chocolate covered almonds.

*Giveaway Alert* I also have a giveaway of the novel from Viking/Penguin and all you have to do is comment below the post with your desire to win and your email so I can contact you!  The giveaway is for U.S. readers only this time. Good luck and enjoy!

Welcome to Oh, for the Hook of a Book and thanks for joining us, Anne! I’m loving your book and the cover is beautiful, just like your imagery.  How does it feel to be publishing your first book?

Anne:  Right now I’m mostly freaking out. I think the first time I see it live in a bookstore I’m going to flip.  But I feel both satisfied and proud. It took me a long time to get here.

Erin:  Ha, I’d be flipping out too. It probably seems surreal. It’s so cold here in Ohio that I need to snuggle up a comfy chair and warm socks with some coffee or tea. I have another comfy chair, so feel free to make yourself comfortable for our interview. If you brought your cats, one for each lap then?  What would you like to drink?

Anne: Peppermint tea will be just fine. Or hot chocolate with a dash of peppermint schnapps if we’re feeling a little more adult.

Erin: Great, I’d go for the latter!  I’ll mix some up! If we are all settled, I’ll begin the interview. I can’t wait to hear all about you and your book.  Let’s show readers the gorgeous cover first….

Moth and Spark.hi res cover

Q:  Moth and Spark is your debut fantasy novel for adults which you started to write while in law school. How did the inspiration come to you?

A: I had just finished writing another book (which didn’t sell) and realized that I had this love story in me that insisted on getting out and was warping everything else I wrote, so I started just to get it out of my system. I love Pride and Prejudice as a love story, so I thought I’d use that as a model and then add fantasy things. Then as it went along it turned into a book I thought about publishing instead of something that I was just writing to get out of the way.

Q:  I’ve read that you aren’t an outline person, but writing a fantasy book to me seems like it would be one of the hardest endeavors given the fact that you created an entirely new world from imagination with locations, people, etc. How did you keep it all straight with no outline? What was your process?

A: Well, this is one of the reasons it took five years to write. (The main reason was that it’s hard to write when you only have a couple hours a week to do it in.) There are a lot of dead-ends that got cut, and I rewrote the last quarter of the book almost entirely twice. I’m actually personally pretty good with names, so keeping my characters straight wasn’t much of an issue, but I did make lists of events and chronologies and draft maps and such. Periodically I would go through and make kind of a reverse outline to see what I had.

Q:  Going back to discussing law school, why did you decide to take such a trek after receiving your doctorate degree from Kent State University (which in fact is about 45 minutes from me!!) in English and wait to write your book? I know so many lawyers who have quit to become writers, and here you are going the other way around….

A:  I’ve been writing forever. This is just the first book that landed with a publisher. I didn’t want to do the college professor thing for a lot of reasons, so I ended up with a paralegal job that was really a lot like being an editor. Then I tried freelance writing and editing for a while and concluded that web copy about gardening was a lot less interesting to write than legal writing, and I could make a heck of a lot more money as a lawyer, so off I went. An awful lot of law is actually about storytelling and convincing the audience – it’s not as different from writing fiction as many people think. Cases are all about conflict and resolution. Winning over a jury includes making the client likeable.

Q:  Have you always been fascinated by fantasy novels, dragons, Lord of the Rings? It seems like your book would be enjoyed by people who like those themes (I do) but yet you have references to Jane Austen as well (of whom I also like). Can you explain how you’ve tied them both together?

A:  I’ve always read fantasy. I like the chance to disappear into another world entirely. That’s what I like about 19th century novels too – Jane Austen’s world is as different from mine as Tolkien’s is, though not in the same ways. Dragons are sort of the archetypal creature of fantasies, so it seemed like they would be the most fun to stick into a more ordinary domestic setting and see what happened. The ordinariness of the domestic setting vanished pretty quickly, what with palaces and such, but I did keep a lot of the details about social conventions and expectations of young women. I took some of the dialogue about that sort of thing directly from Austen.

Q:  Is your novel more a fantasy adventure or a romance? Can you describe how your book might differ some from most major mainstream fantasy novels (movies)? What makes yours stand apart?

A:  I think the fantasy and romance elements are pretty evenly balanced (which makes some people think there’s way too much romance). It is a book that is much more about relationships than it is about sword fights and leaping from one danger to another. I prefer to term it a love story, because in our culture the term “romance” is loaded with a lot of negative assumptions about women’s roles.  One of the things that people have commented on is how I have two equal protagonists – they share the stage equally and are both instrumental in resolving the plot.  Also, instead of a lot of romantic conflict my characters actually have a partnership, which is apparently a really rare thing in books and is certainly rare in movies. The number of reader comments I’ve seen expressing pleasure that there is a smart, practical heroine with an equal role to play tells me that the book stands out for that reason.

Q:  What has been your most challenging experience in the process of writing and publishing your book? What, in contrast, has been your most prized success so far?

A:  Writing is always both hard and necessary. The new and challenging part has been to continue writing as the publication date approaches. Not only am I busy with things like this interview, but it is really easy to obsess about prospective sales, reviews, and so on. It’s kind of like watching the polls before a Presidential election. The biggest success is that I have been able to be a full-time writer instead of squeezing it in to the gaps between obligations. And of course I’m pleased that people like the book.

Q:  Will Moth and Spark be an individual novel or have you set it up as a planned series?

A: It is an individual novel, and I am not going into lengthy series land, but I am working on another book set a bit later in the same world. It’s not a copy though – it has a darker tone and a very different bad guy.  The recurring characters are all a lot less shiny. When I was considering whether or not I wanted to do a sequel, which was after the book sold, I knew that I wouldn’t write a sequel that was just “the further adventures” – it had to be a story worth telling on its own. At some point I’d like to do a prequel of about 70 years earlier, but after I finish (if I finish) my current project, I’m going to live in other worlds for a while.

Q:  If you hope to write more novels in the future, will you remain a fantasy author? What other books do you hope to write in the future (in the same genre or otherwise)?

A: I will probably always include magical or speculative elements in my fiction, but I want to try other genres and other stories. I’d like to do some SF, maybe some urban fantasy or western fantasy, possibly a historical novel.  I need to stretch and try different things as a writer.

Q:  You mentioned in your bio about editing a scholarly piece of race and color and science fiction. What was being explored and what was the result of the article? I am intrigued after reading that, and it got me thinking about it in relation to various story lines within that genre.

A: I actually edited an anthology of scholarly articles (Into Darkness Peering), which at the time (1997) was the first scholarly work to pay any significant attention to the issue. I wrote a few subsequent critical articles for other publications.  Diversity in SFF is an extremely live and unfortunately contentious issue now, 17 years later, which is depressing – I’d like it to be a nonissue. But what is exciting is that there are many more writers of color than there used to be, and the faux-European setting no longer dominates the genre, so there has been real movement forward. Conversation is actually happening. I wrote a piece recently for the Mythic Scribes writing forum about how white writers can add diversity, and the first step as I see it is to become aware of one’s own whiteness and the privilege that confers.

Q:  Who are some of your favorite authors? Who are the authors that are your inspiration? And authors that you enjoy reading?

A: My current favorite author is Cormac McCarthy, although I would not say his works are ones that I “enjoy” – they’re so emotionally hard. But amazing. I’m fond of 19th c. writers (Austen, Eliot, the Brontes, Dickens, Hawthorne, and Melville). I like Faulkner and Flannery O’Connor. I also really like A.S. Byatt. In genre fiction, I read Stephen King, Ursula K. Le Guin, and anyone who has a well-written book with a good story. I used to read a lot of long series epic fantasy but it got to the point where I could read a whole book and nothing had really happened, so I’m a little burned out on that genre now. I also like a good suspense or mystery novel.

Q:  For a fun question, what is your favorite snack that tides you over during long hours of editing and writing?

A: Geez, now I’m hungry. I mostly have crackery/ pretzely type snacks. My major weakness is for Trader Joe’s dark-chocolate covered almonds with sea-salt, and I have to be really careful about having those around.

Q:  Where can readers and writers connect with you?

A:  My website is http://anneleonardbooks.com, and I am on twitter at @anneleonardauth. I also have a facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/anneleonardbooks.

Q:  Where can everyone purchase your book?

A: Everywhere! Indie bookstores have it, as do the big online retailers. There’s also an audio edition. If you’re debating between e-book and hardcover, get the hardcover – the design folks at Penguin did an amazing job creating an utterly gorgeous book. The jacket feels almost like velvet or sanded silk.

Erin:  Yes, I have the hardback and the cover is BEAUTIFUL! Anne, it was a delight to have you here and I wish you the best of luck with your debut novel, Moth and Spark. It’s an amazing journey in a novel.  Stop by again anytime here, you are always welcome! Are you sure you want to take both cats home? This one seems to be sleeping quite soundly on my lap….

Anne: If that’s the one that needs the expensive prescription cat food, you can keep him! Not really, my son would be very angry with me. Thanks for the interview, these were fun questions.

Here are Anne’s cats, they enjoyed joining us for the interview….

A Prince with a quest.

A commoner with mysterious powers.

And dragons who demand to be free—at any cost.

Set in the land of Caithen, a country on the brink of invasion by vicious Tyrekh, this breathtakingly imaginative fantasy packs every punch the genre requires—intrigue, war, sorcery and magic, dragons, and forbidden romance. For fans of the Games of Thrones series, Diana Gabaldon, and Anne McCaffrey, MOTH AND SPARK is an elegant and compelling read.

Recruited by the Firekeepers, Prince Corin has been given an impossible task—to free the dragons from their bondage to the Empire, though no one, not even the dragons or their riders, understand the bonds which hold them. Given their power, but none of the knowledge to use it, Corin is torn between his new quest and his royal duty to defend his country from the Sarian invasion.

Before arriving in Caithen for Summer Court, Tam, the unassuming daughter of a well-respected doctor, has no idea she was born a Seer, someone gifted with visions. After a rainy afternoon leads Prince Corin and Tam to a chance encounter in the palace library, they meet for dinner where sparks fly, but it’s not all happily ever after. Never mind that the prince isn’t allowed to marry a commoner, Caithen is falling to the Sarians. When an attack on the capital forces the lovers to flee, Corin and Tam must figure out how to master their newly discovered powers in order to save Caithen and themselves. With the help from a village of secret wizards and a rogue dragonrider, they might just pull it off.

At last readers will be introduced to the deadly harsh steppe lands of Sarian, to the white-barked tree-lined streets of Caithenor.  Every last element of Leonard’s lush, extraordinary world carries the heft of cinematic detail with pitch-perfect vision.

Rebecca Hazell, historical author of The Grip of God, discuss Mongols, Writing, and Important Women in History!

Today, I have an amazing interview with author Rebecca Hazell that I found so incredibly interesting. I hope you take a few moments to read, or at least bookmark for later. There is a lot of thoughtful and insightful  information, plus we had a lot of fun! Be sure to come back by the blog on Monday, when I’ll have a review of The Grip of God and a giveaway!

Hi Rebecca, thank you so much for coming by Oh, for the Hook of a Book today to chat with me about your books and your most interesting life! What has been new and noteworthy for you recently?

Rebecca: Thanks so much for inviting me! It’s been an interesting and challenging few months: a solo art show, our son involved in a serious car accident (still gives me shivers when I think about it), and a lovely visit to San Francisco that meant first getting through the blizzard in Portland, Oregon. Other than that, life goes on as usual.

Erin: It’s still snowing/sleeting rain here where I am, so I’m going to put on some hot chocolate. Would you like a hot drink? What’s your choice?

Rebecca: I love hot chocolate, too.

Erin: Wonderful, let’s have a seat and I’ll get started. I’m anxious to learn about you! Let’s show off the cover of The Grip of God first….

grip of god

Q:  On your website, you describe the first book, The Grip of God, in your series as “set in the 13th Century during the time of the Mongol invasions, the story chronicles an adventure akin to a character from the Game of Thrones, but with the feminine sensibilities of Jane Austen.” Can you explain this further to the prospective reader?  Both seem like such different characteristics!

A: Jane Austen is my favorite author, because she was both insightful and had a sense of perspective about her times. Many of her heroines had to quietly endure suffering based on lack of money, love, or opportunity, but they had a certain bravery that ennobled them. (She also had a great sense of humor!) My heroine, Sofia, has those qualities, though less sense of humor, because her life is utterly different from the gentler world that Jane portrayed. Sofia must face the loss of her entire world when the Mongols invade her homeland. But she manages not to lose heart or become bitter, qualities Jane both portrayed and embodied. The Game of Thrones element is that that series portrays a world of continual war, bitter politics, and personal uncertainty, exactly the kind of world that Sofia must face. I think the contrast of the two, the personal integrity of an Austen, played against the backdrop of a Game of Thrones world, is quite intriguing.

Q:  I’ve always been interested in Mongolian history, but haven’t come across many books featuring women of the time period. How did you find your inspiration for this book?

A: You’re right: women were truly chattel in that era, and only remarkable women broke that mold and made it into history books. My inspiration was inexplicable: the story seemed to leap out and seize me when I was in my early twenties. My husband tells me that I told him the basic plot on our third date. It haunted me for years, and one day in the 1990’s I decided it was high time to get the story told.

Erin: How exciting you did!!

Q:  How extensive was your research? Were you able to find an abundance of materials on women of this time period or did you have to creatively come up with it all on your own? Explain in either or both regard, please.

A: My research took about 15 years, off and on; for the entire trilogy I read at least a hundred books. Thank you, university libraries! The internet became a wonderful resource, but also I lucked into situations like going to Disney World with my family and discovering a traveling exhibit on the Mongols, including an amazing collection of artifacts like clothing, armor, weapons, saddles, even eating pouches with chopsticks and napkins! I was taking notes like crazy while my family went on the Disney rides.

Erin: How exciting!!

As to creating things from my imagination, I couldn’t get away with that. Even when I did make up a detail like a blue vial of rosewater, it usually turned out that I would find that very item in a museum somewhere! It got a little spooky. Overall, everything is as historically accurate as I could make it, which was my intention. History is stranger than fiction, so why try to change it?

Erin: Agreed!

Researching how the women would have lived was a challenge. I just didn’t give up, even using books written in languages I don’t speak, but which had great pictures. I haunted museums whenever we traveled, looking at scraps of textiles and how they were used, for instance. I read not only histories but also books about how life was lived, and when I couldn’t find out directly, I used modern sources on traditional cultures and extrapolated back in time. This was often necessary where the Mongols had destroyed just about everything in their path: not much left for posterity to study! And I had the great good fortune of visiting Kiev, or Kyiv as the Ukrainians call it, and visiting the very places I wrote about.

Q:  How would you describe women of the Mongol period?  How are they different or the same from other women of the 13th century? How did the gender progress as time moved on?

A: Interesting question. Sofia is, of course, not a Mongol but a minor princess of the doomed principality of Kievan Rus’, the forerunner of both Ukraine and Russia. So much of the book shows her contrasting her memories and assumptions with those of the Mongols, who thought very differently about things, including the role of women. In Rus’, noblewomen were losing ground in terms of independence because they were thought to need protecting during this war-torn period. After the Mongol invasions, they were kept isolated in their homes, almost like being in a harem. This was also the time when serfdom arose, where peasants were bound to the land by force, kind of like a protection racket. They ran away a lot, so I imagine women peasants ran away along with their men.

Women of Sofia’s rank were political pawns who were expected to marry for family and/or political gain, not for love—though mutual love may have arisen. Mongol women of lower ranks had a lot of independence and authority to run their households, but Mongol noblewomen were used in the same way as in Rus’ or other European countries, to bind families or tribes in alliances. I think Mongol women overall may have had more freedom than European women had.

Erin: I think that sounds pretty accurate. It’s all so very interesting.

Q:  Do you describe your book as biographical historical fiction, historical fiction, or historical fantasy? And why?  What type of reader would enjoy your book the most?

A: I think of my book as serious historical fiction but with a romantic orientation because I believe that everyone craves love, even when it seems like love is last on the list of priorities. And so much serious historical fiction seems to be about how selfish people were, when the world simply couldn’t have survived if no one offered kindness or insight to each other. I think women (and men!) who are curious and want to learn more about the world, past and present, would enjoy this book. It has so much resonance with modern times: how we are still trying to find ways to work with others who don’t share our points of view, for instance.

Q:  I believe I saw that there are other books in this series as well. Are they already published, coming soon, or are you still writing them? If not available, when will they be available?

A: All three books are written, and the second one, Solomon’s Bride, will hopefully be out within a month. It’s set in Iran and the Crusader states, where Sofia runs into more trouble. And the third novel, Consolamentum, will be out by April or May, fingers crossed.

Q:  I was really delighted to see your non-fiction children’s books on heroes and heroines and women writers!  I have three school-aged children and I think these books look fantastic in regards to teaching them history and life lessons. Especially the women writers, since I’m a writer, but more so because my 10 year old daughter enjoys writing. How did you decide who to feature in your books? Why is this important for young readers?

A: I loved writing those books. I drew up long lists of people for each one and then found those who covered several bases, so to speak: time periods, cultures, ethnic backgrounds, etc. It was hard leaving so many great people out, and I’d like to write a second volume of heroines and heroes. No more heroic children, though. I cried buckets writing that book, though it was a great success in many ways. Lots of people told me it made them cry, too.

And writing about women writers was truly inspiring because those authors had to work so hard, because historically, women were so marginalized. I think it’s important for girls to know that they will face obstacles in life but that they will grow stronger from meeting them with courage and creativity.

Q:  Your art is very beautiful, as well as peaceful and comforting. I’d love to see more of your work. When did you start painting? Can you tell us a little about your art?

A: I started my art career drawing on the walls of our home at around age two. Art is hard work, but for me it highlights what is wonderful about this world, so that is what I seek to capture. I had to set it aside while finishing the novels, but am now getting excited about exploring it again. I am very illustration-oriented, but would like to do some more mysterious, surreal pieces, kind of like illustrations for fairy tales but ones that were never written.

Q:  I really like your book cover of The Grip of God, as well as what I’ve seen of the others on your website.  Did you design them?

A: Yes, my daughter and I designed that one, but not Solomon’s Bride. We also designed Consolamentum, which is still not finalized.

Q:  What other women in history do you admire? Who would you choose to write about if given the chance?

A: Thanks for asking this! I admire Hatshepsut, the first great woman in history, who usurped the throne of Egypt and ruled as a pharaoh for many years, bringing peace and harmony to her subjects and rearing her ‘legitimate’ nephew to take over. I also admire Queen Tamar of Georgia, who was a great leader for her people in the thirteenth century despite nearly getting invaded by the Mongols. It was said of her reign that peasants lived like nobles and nobles lived like kings.

queentamar_giorgi1Queen Tamar of Georgia (at left)

And I admire Christine de Pisan, who was such an eloquent defender of women in the 14th/15th centuries. And then there was Eleanor Roosevelt, who was a representative to the newly formed United Nations. She almost singlehandedly got representatives of enemy nations to sit down, put their differences aside, and write the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. She was so brilliant, tough, and full of heart!

Erin: Hatshepsut is a favorite of mine, as are most Egyptian women. My two oldest children are part-Egyptian, but even before them, I have always been a huge fan of Egyptian history. I think it is still selling, even though some publishers don’t, but there is still so much left to write and explore. Their spirituality amazes me.

And as for Eleanor Roosevelt, I concur!! She is an ancestor of mine, on my mom’s side!! Nice to hear you say those things about her, I admire her as well.

Q:  Do you have plans for any other books in the future?

A: Yes, I’d like to write something about how people have created societies that were based on some vision of mutual good. Ancient Egypt comes to mind, as well as what we call Byzantium, and there are several others that worked so well for a thousand years. We could learn a lot from them.

Erin:  My goodness, I’d say so. There is drama in every society, but yet some more tranquil than others, and unified.

But I’d also like to write about a couple of medieval queens (my ancestors, yet!) who were rivals and not very pleasant people. Skullduggery and nastiness galore; they make Game of Thrones look tame! They’d make great reading, though.

Erin: Now I’m curious about your ancestors!!

Q:  Where can readers connect with you?

A: They can go to my website and email me from there. I always answer and am glad to connect with them.

Q:  Please let readers know where and when they can find your book series!

A: At present, Amazon.com and its affiliates, or they can order through their local bookstores. I root for the latter, and feel very supported by the two bookstores in the town where I live. And libraries may be willing to order copies; my library bought books directly from me.

Erin:  Thank you so very much for speaking with me today. I hope to follow your art and your writing. Best wishes to you for the success of your series!

Rebecca: Thank you, Erin. I’d love to come back and visit you again. You not only ask great questions, you make great hot chocolate!

Erin: I look forward to it!
