Becoming Little – Guest Post at Carina Press

My guest post is online at Carina Press. It’s called Becoming Little. Here’s a snippet:

I am of slightly above-average height, but I have written a book about a little person, or a dwarf.


In order to get into character, I had to do a lot of mental adjustment. My heroine, Gretchen, is barely four feet tall. She lives in post-medieval Europe, somewhere around the Schwarzwald, or the Black Forest. She has the most common form of dwarfism, achondroplasia. It is the form you are probably most familiar with.


In order to get to know my character–to try her out, to see if she would work–I wrote a little scene about the kind of treatment she has to put up with:

2 Thoughts to “Becoming Little – Guest Post at Carina Press”

  1. Haven’t been around much lately. I had a busy week. I just wanted to let you know I finished `Magic Mirror’ just now and I love it! I love the friendship between Gretchen and Angelika. I love the twin romances. I really love Richard, and Lars is so sweet. And of course I have a soft spot for the minstrel. (I always have a soft spot for minstrels.) I like how grounded the story is in detail, and how that makes everything feel so real, including the magic. I think it’s awesome how the prologue has such a feel of legend and then you get to see later how it relates. (Like minstrels, I have a soft spot for legend-sounding back stories.) I wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed the story. It’s my favorite of the series so far. (Though my opinion may be slightly influenced by the fact that I just read it.)

      I am so glad you liked it, Chic! I definitely put a more disciplined effort into this story instead of going off into tangents as I did with Sevenfold Spell. And people have noticed. Thanks so much for telling what you thought.
