Interview with Lindsay Buroker, Author of Marked by Magic

12 Dec 2023

What’s the story behind the story? What inspired you to write Marked by Magic?

This is the second spin-off series in my urban fantasy world (Seattle with dragons and magic). It’s been a fun place to visit, so I keep coming back for more. The introverted tracker heroine of this series, Arwen, was briefly introduced in my Legacy of Magic books, but this is her chance to shine. There’s also a powerful half-dragon that readers have been wanting to learn more about, and he’s a main character in this one. Even though the heroes have appeared before, I wrote this series to stand alone, so new readers can jump right in.

What’s your favorite genre to read? Is it the same as your favorite genre to write?

Fantasy romance. Whether I write fantasy or science fiction, romance seems to creep in!

What books are on your TBR pile right now?

I’m reading Legends & Lattes, a cozy fantasy.

What scene in your book was your favorite to write?

Our 30-year-old backwoods heroine has to team up with a sixteen-year-old driver and researcher with a lot of opinions about Arwen’s wardrobe (and everything). Those scenes were fun to write.

Do you have any quirky writing habits? (lucky mugs, cats on laps, etc.)

I write on the couch with my laptop, often under a dog or two.

Do you have a motto, quote, or philosophy you live by?

We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors; we borrow it from our children.

If you could choose one thing for readers to remember after reading your book, what would it be?

It’s okay not to be normal 🙂
