ACCORDING to the world of publishing, fantasy ‘is a genre of fiction that uses magic and other supernatural phenomena as a primary element of plot, theme, or setting’.
Like magic, however, it is difficult – if not impossible – to disambiguate unrestrained imagination and compartmentalise it into a single concept. So many authors of the genre, therefore, are placed into that wide and indeterminate list they in the publishing business call ‘speculative fiction’.
I am a writer of fantasy and paranormal fiction. I create worlds of dark and light, of good and evil, of sorrow and happiness. My panoramas, scenes and characters are born purely from a wild imagination – at times extravagant, but never restrained. I don’t write ‘what ifs’ but rather try to create believable stories and characters that my readers can absorb themselves into and escape for a while into my world.
