I’m a mother of two boys who have always read fantasy, and now I’m writing too. Currently revising the first ever attempt (the first in a planned trilogy that has serious issues with semi-standing on its own) and planning a new one that *will* stand on its own. I hope.
BTW – I’m Swedish, so English is my second language. I write in both… often I think in English when it comes to fantasy, probably because I almost only read that genre in English now.
