Speculative Fiction Blog Hop - Carole McDonnell
This week, I'm really delighted to announce that my friend Carole McDonnell is doing the Speculative Fiction Blog Hop!
Carole is a fantasy writer and author of The Constant Tower and Wind Follower. She is currently working on a YA contemporary fantasy, My Life as an Onion. Carole has also written numerous short stories, reviews and essays, including a contribution to the acclaimed Griots: A Sword and Soul Anthology, edited by Charles Saunders and Milton Davis.
Here Carole explains what makes her writing distinctive:
My stories are pagan, anthropological, multicultural, and Christian epic fantasy. Yet they transcend race and religion. My characters are Black but my stories are not really afro-centric, although they have racial concerns. My genre is called sword and soul. Even when I write steamfunk -- the black equivalent of steampunk-- my stories transcend race.Read the whole post about her writing process here: http://carolemcdonnell.blogspot.co.uk/2014/09/speculative-fiction-writing-blog-hop.html
