Interview with Lindsay Buroker, Author of The Princess Paradigm

28 Jul 2022

What’s the story behind the story? What inspired you to write The Princess Paradigm?

I’ve long been a fan of elves (the first fantasy books I fell in love with were R. A. Salvatore’s Drizzt books), so when I started thinking of doing fantasy romance, it was natural to want to bring in some sexy elves. Who doesn’t love pointed ears?

In the first book I wrote in this world, The Elf Tangent, the hero was an elf. In this one, the story focuses on his sister, an elf princess with a few issues to work through, and the hunky human warrior she falls in love with. A bit of a reverse on the typical elf romance! I hope people enjoy it.

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

I enjoy fantasy and science fiction with strong and quirky characters and a bit (or a lot) of romance. Yes, it’s what I like to write too!

What books are on your TBR pile right now?

I’m currently reading Warprize by Elizabeth Vaughan.

What scene in your book was your favorite to write?

There’s a scene where the hero and heroine are escaping from the bad guys and quietly sneaking off a river boat… and whoops, here comes the hero’s horse who *unquietly* leaps over the railing and into the river. Horses have to escape too, after all. 🙂

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

I have a tendency to think up scenes and dialogue while I’m hiking with my dogs, so lots of notes get written into my phone, often in between me tripping and clunking my head on branches.

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

Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result.

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

People deserve a second chance. 🙂
