Get to know Calie...

Birthdate?


5/20/1969


When did you start writing?


In second grade – a story about the Keebler Elves and a cat.



When and what and where did you first get published?


Deep Magic way back when.



Why do you write?


Writing is a way to get worlds across.



Why do you write Science Fiction and/or Fantasy?


Because my imagination tends to run towards the fantastic.



Who is your favorite author? Your favorite story?


Unfair question – rather like asking which type of chocolate I prefer.  Really depends on the day, mood, season, and what type of adventure I feel like experiencing.  That said, I really enjoy Robin McKinley, Ursula K. LeGuin (of course), and more recently, Jeff VanderMeer, Nick Mamatas, and I’m currently rereading James Tiptree.



What are you trying to say with your fiction?


There’s no one theme or motif I inspire to convey – more of moods, with varying intensity.



If you could write your own epitaph, what would it say?


“She tried to do things with words.”



Do you blog?


Not precisely, but I do write the “Changing the Map” column at SpeculativeChic.com.
