I love Mary Stewart’s books. She has a wonderful way with prose, where she can suck you into the atmosphere until you’re not even reading the words, just feeling the magic of the moment. I wanted to write in no small part because of her, and what she could do with the English language. Plus she likes magic and ancient history and all the things I do too. Anyway, this is a slightly old interview with her about how and what and why she writes. Enjoy.
