Interview with BR Kingsolver, Author of The Gambler Grimoire

25 Aug 2021

What’s the story behind the story? What inspired you to write The Gambler Grimoire?

Most academy/college urban fantasy novels are written as Young Adult or New Adult stories, with students as the main characters. I wanted to use that setting, but with adults as the main characters. A college makes a great cozy mystery setting.  

If you woke up in the world of The Gambler Grimoire, what is the first thing you would do?

It is a rather comfortable world. Other than witches and magic being common, it’s basically the world we live in.

If you had to write a blurb for the last book you read, what would it say?

A not-very-good cozy mystery with two-dimensional characters that is really slow.

Where did you write The Gambler Grimoire?

I do most of my writing at the kitchen table. There’s a bay window that overlooks a golf course with the mountains in the distance.

Pretend you qualified for the Olympics this year. What sport would you compete in?

Downhill skiing. Senior division.
