I have been kicking around for the better part of a year the thought of writing a fantasy novel targeted for the YA market. Maybe it was seeing Chris Paolini’s success with Eragon or also my love of the Harry Potter novels. My own first brush with the genre started at a young age myself when I read Lloyd Alexander’s Chronicles of Prydain. So I’ve chatted on-line with my contact at Del Rey and gotten some names of the major editors out there so I can interview them for Deep Magic. Heard back from one of them this morning who was agreeable to doing an interview. Should be fun!
