Being a writer myself I definitely have my idols. I am so lucky to be able to attend Emerald City Comic Con. There are several I am so excited for. I have heard of, watched or read their works and would be deeply honored to meet them. I think I will be spending a lot of time in the Writer’s Block.
Jim Butcher- Jim is one of my all-time favorite authors! He is the author of the Codex Alera series, Cinder Spire series and of course the best of all The Dresden Files. He has even written a Spiderman novel called The Darkest Hours. Not bad for someone who got hooked on books when he had strep throat as a kid. He is scheduled to be there all days.
R. A. Salvatore- This one is my husband’s favorite author. He is the creator of Drizzt Do’Urden a drow (aka a dark elf) in the Forgotten Realms novels and is also the writer of The DemonWars Saga and even wrote Vector Prime the first book in Star Wars: The New Jedi Order. He is also the author of the story for Forgotten Realms: Demon Stone for the PC, Xbox and PS2. He has two degrees, one in English and one in Communications/Media and worked as a bouncer before becoming a full time writer. As of 2/23/18 his schedules is to be determined. I really want to meet him.
Terry Brooks- Terry Brooks is the creator and author of The Shannara Chronicles had his first book Sword of Shannara published in 1977 and is still writing books for Shannara. He wrote this series with the thought that each book could be a stand-alone novel. The series was even picked up by MTV for a time. Since I liked the show I will pick up one of the books and get lost for a time. At this time he is scheduled to be there on Saturday and Sunday.
Amy Bartol- She is the author of Secondborn and the Premonition series. Amy lives in Michigan with her husband and kids and is traveling to see us here in the Pacific Northwest. She is set to be there Thursday and Friday. I will definitely be trying to meet her.
Anne Bishop- Anne is the author of The Courtyards Of The Others series, The Landscapes Of Ephemrea series, The World of the Fae trilogy and The Black Jewels novels which she won the Crawford Award for the first three books. I definitely need to get my hands on some of her books. At this time she is only scheduled to be there Sunday.
Do you know any of these authors? Do you have anything you want me to try to ask them? Let me know below and I will do my best. See you on the other side of ECCC!
