It’s finally here =D
I wish I could say I’ve been waiting patiently for this book since 05 but realistically, I just finished Feast Of Crows last year. While I loved the series, a certain ex-husband spoiled Feast of Crows for me before I was even done with Game of Thrones. I knew every twist and turn of Feast of Crows as well as finding out that it was a pretty boring book because it was missing the best characters stories…
And had a plethora of Cersei chapters (Gag).
So even before reading Feast of Crows, I agonized over the release date of this book. And now it’s here =D. Finished the prologue during the down time at work today and am greedily reading through the first Tyrion chapter. Oh how I miss that little dwarf…
Most girls dreamed of being a princess or a warrior. Jamie dreamed of both. Spending her days running around in the woods, Jamie spliced together different worlds to create her own unique one. The only things that stayed the same was the balance between good and evil in her characters: oh and fire. Oh and cats.
One day her dreams were shattered. She had become too old for make-believe. For a panicked moment, the world was lost, and then she discovered writing: make-believe that was accepted.
Even with a strong background of video games and 80’s cartoons, she was really only interested in talking animals. One fateful date in 6th grade, the 11 year old Jamie was forced to read The Book of Three By Lloyd Alexander. The thought of reading something without talking animals (even though her teacher assured her that the was a “talking” pig) was unbearable. She only agreed after being told that someone would be reading it to her.
The book changed her life and Jamie jumped from talking animals to the deep rich fantasy that had plagued her imagination as a child. From there, she began to write original fiction, crossovers, and fan fiction. She attended the Maine School of Science Mathematics for high school. She then ran away to Umaine for her BA in Creative Writing and finally ending her school career with a MFA in Creative Writing from Full Sail University. She currently lives in Maine with her two beloved Corgis. You can read her blog and other writings at https://curiouswitch.wordpress.com/
