Fantasy - end or beginning

An end or beginning…


There’s news that Tanith Lee has passed. Like so many, I’ve been browsing through the tributes, remembering the writer I thought I knew — through her words. I mourn the books that won’t ever be, but I’m also inspired. (And, I hope you are as well!)

In an interview with Locus Magazine, she once said: “Writers tell stories better, because they’ve had more practice, but everyone has a book in them.”

I think back to some of the fascinating stories I’ve heard when I took a few minutes to just listen. So many of us lead such fascinating lives, and it doesn’t take fame or fortune to make it so. We’re all storytellers, it’s true; but most of those tales are lost forever, with unspoken regret.


Esther is a full-time freelancer, who draws upon her background to deliver fun and compelling stories. To her, the story and the vehicle(s) of expression are important, but sometimes it's just as essential to explore those areas just outside one's comfort zone. She loves to jump head-first into that deep ravine, and discover where her parachute will take her.
