The Seven Towers was my fourth novel, and my first attempt at having more than one viewpoint character. It contains one of my favorite characters, the apparently absent-minded sorceress Amberglas, and it’s just been reissued by Firebird after years of being out of print.

Snow White and Rose Red is a retelling of the Brothers Grimm fairy tale “Snow White and Rose Red” set in Elizabethan England. It was one of my favorite fairy tales when I was growing up, in spite of having to explain repeatedly that I did not mean “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.”

The three Star Wars books were both a learning experience and an incredible amount of fun to do. I hadn’t worked with such an inflexibly tight time-frame before, and turning a screenplay into a book was a lot more difficult than it looked at first glance. The folks at Lucasbooks were extremely supportive and helpful, and gave me prompt answers to every question I asked (though sometimes the answer was “We’re very sorry, but George Lucas hasn’t made that up yet”).
