Author Interview: J.A. Culican
Another author interview! This one is with USA TODAY Bestselling author J.A. Culican! I had the pleasure of working with her back late 2016 and early 2017 and I can personally vouch for her books! Check out what she has for free further down below!
Can you tell me about yourself and what you write? I write YA Fantasy. The books I write are appropriate for all ages!! I am a middle school teacher and it was important to me to write books my students and others could enjoy.
What inspired you start writing? Who do you consider your inspiration (s) My children were my inspiration. I used to tell the story of my Keeper of Dragons series to my kids at night. My oldest asked me for the book, when I told her that I had made the stories up and a book didn't exist, she asked me to write is. I figured why not, not thinking it would ever go live and bam...the Keeper of Dragons was born.
What is your favorite part about creating fantasy worlds? Escaping reality. Even if it's just for a few minutes a day, the idea of magic, dragon's and fantastical worlds is a fun and amazing escape.
Do you have any really cool or unique creatures in your fiction? I am known for my dragons. I love writing about dragons and incorporating them into my stories. There is something so majestic about dragons that I feel they make a fantasy story.
My readers really enjoy darker themed fantasy? Do you have any works that they might especially like? My new release (8/22) Second Sight is my darkest fantasy. The book revolves around Ela who can foresee peoples deaths.
