She'll be joining us in the comment thread on this very post tomorrow, June 29 between 8:00-9:00 AM Pacific Time. Start posting your questions for her now, and she'll answer as many as she can during that hour.


Please be polite!

Want to get a head start on our next book? In July, we'll be reading Saladin Ahmed's Throne of the Crescent Moon, which we've been raving about for months (we reviewed it here). [Amazon] We'll meet July 24 to talk about the book, and Ahmed will join us in a conversation later that week.

Most of your books are, at first glance, genre: fantasy, murder mystery, alternate history, etc. But upon reading them, one realizes they often quite flagrantly defy genre expectations. (Anyone who has seen Brave may contrast that genre tale with Among Others to see what a conventional mother/daughter fantasy might do vs. what a Walton one does.)

I'm just wondering if you choose deliberately to muck about with genre conventions, or if it's just something that you're drawn to in writing?
