Ask E.G. Radcliff a question

    • Q: Who do you write for?
      A: I write for lovers of gritty fantasy. I write for people interested in deep characters and startling secrets. I write for people who find beauty in the little things…and the big, adventurous things too. I write for fans of magic, heroes, and kings--but not tropes--as well as those with an interest in history or folklore. My audience is predominantly young adults, but some of my writing can tip toward the more-mature end of the spectrum.

      Q: What does your writing process look like?
      A: For me, there’s a magical time around one in the morning where the words just pour. At that hour, I’m relaxed enough for my mind to break from the mold, and the reason is this: During the day, there are all sorts of things that need to get done. Especially when writing isn’t the day job--which, for many authors, it’s not--responsibilities, schedules, and structures take up mental shelf space for most of the waking hours. I found a time where I could forget about all that, and that let me just write. I capture a lot of ideas in journals, but when I'm on a tear, I write on my laptop--I wish it were an old fashioned typewriter for the romance of it, but I don't think I could pull that off!

      Q: What are some of your all time favorite book covers?
      A: I really love the duality in the cover for Laini Taylor’s "Strange the Dreamer", and the incredible, symmetrical detail of Bridget Collins’s "The Binding" (created by the über-talented Micaela Alcaino, @alcainoillustration, who also did the cover for The Hidden King). I must also include the beautiful hand-drawn look of Colin Meloy’s "Wildwood".

      Q: What books rocked your young adult world?
      A: Fantasy was my go-to when I was younger, and I think that had kind of a formative impact on me. I remember being completely spellbound by Brandon Mull’s "Fablehaven" and "Beyonders" series, and shortly after that, I discovered Arthurian legend, which has grown into one of my deepest passions. "A Pilgrim at Tinker Creek", a book which I seem to be perpetually reading, likewise blew me out of the water: It’s nonfiction, but a miracle of detail, a complete phenomenon of seeing the world differently.

      Q: Any pets?
      A: Oh, yes. I have a cat named Emrys; that means 'the immortal,' and I got the name from the BBC show Merlin. I'll post a photo (or two) of him on my blog!
