Interview with E.G. Radcliff, Author of The Wild Court

30 Jun 2021

What can you tell us about your new release, The Wild Court?

It’s my favorite of the series! There’s a lot more action than the previous two books, a larger cast, and a bigger world. A lot of emotional impact still stems from the characters and their relationships, but between character drama and intense plot stakes, The Wild Court explores the society of the fae, the magic there, and the ways the world across the veil ties into the human realm more closely than anybody realized.

What books are currently on your nightstand?

Crooked Kingdom (Leigh Bardugo), Blood of Elves (Andrzej Sapowski), one or two of my many notebooks

What advice would you give your teenage self?

This is the healthiest that your sleep schedule will ever be–enjoy it while you can.

If you had an extra hour each day, how would you spend it?

Ooh, maybe I’d beef up my conlang. I’ve been thinking of adding multiple grammatical declensions or maybe making vowel length contrastive.

What makes your world go round? Why does it bring you joy?

Ah, so many things. There are the easy answers–friends, family, writing, my cat–but for something a little more interesting, I like it when mundane things take my breath away. For instance, my front yard. It’s mostly not grass–it’s creeping charlie and clover, and it’s a bit of a mess. But in the spring, it sprouts wildflowers all over it, and there’s nothing quite so nice as drinking coffee on the porch while the sun shines through wild chives and buttercups. They collect dew when the sun comes up, and the bees love them. I think it’s remarkably beautiful.

What scene from The Wild Court was your favorite to write?

I loved writing every interaction between Ronan and anyone else. My boy grew up to be chaotic, bless him.
