teaching literacy.

Ask me anything   Submit   ever since i was a little girl, words have danced through my head and in my heart.

"Many people still assume that fantasy is just for children and that adults who read it must be childish themselves. I see it all the time. I’ll be at a dinner party, and the person next to me asks me what I do. I’m a novelist, I’ll say, and a little light of hopeful interest kindles in their eyes. What kind of novels do you write? the dinner guest asks. And I reply: fantasy novels. And just like that, the little light of hopeful interest dies away.
I understand that reaction. I’ve even caught myself having it. But when I found my voice as a novelist, it came out as fantasy. My books have spells in them and even the odd monster or two. Is that so wrong?"
