  3. "Scads of witty dialogue, a story packed full of twists and turns, and two of the cheekiest thieves you’ll ever meet… What more could a reader ask for? The Lies of Locke Lamora is the first book in the Gentleman Bastard series, and the two books that follow are equally entertaining. Scott Lynch weaves an absorbing tale that will whisk you right out of this world and keep you thoroughly entertained.”

    Mary Jo recommends The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch.

  8. Why do you write?
    A couple of years ago, my answer to this would have been different, I expect. Wizards of the Coast was putting together an anthology of all of the short stories I had done for the Forgotten Realms over the years. Part of my task was to provide an introduction to each of the stories — what was I thinking when I wrote it?

    Going over those stories was like looking at an old photo album. I was thrown back to the time, place, and mental state so vividly… it was like reliving the last 25 years of my life.

    And then I understood why I write: This is my spiritual journey. This is the way I make sense of the world around me. I use my characters as sounding boards as I try to resolve the big questions bouncing around inside my head. I cannot imagine my life without this tool, this outlet.
