I got to interview Mari Mancusi

1)    What do you need or don't need in your writing space?

Quiet and coffee.

2)    In Scorched, which I can't wait to read, revolves around a dragon. What made you want to write a story around this majestic creature?

I’ve always been fascinated by dragons ever since I read Robin McKinley’s Hero and the Crown when I was a child. They’re big, majestic, a bit scary and more than a bit dangerous but also beautiful and magical and loyal.

Also I wanted to explore what would happen if dragons became a part of our world. Too often they’re featured in stories about far off fantasy kingdoms. What would happen if they came here today? Would they trend on Twitter?

3) Can you give a 140 character sentence on what your short story in the anthology is about?

A story about loyalty and the sacrifices we choose to make for those we love…even if they don’t turn out the way we expect. Also: werewolves.

4) What is something you'd like to write about but are overwhelmed by?

Historicals. I like reading them, but could never deal with all the research that goes into making them true to life.
