Say Hello to Sarah Wilson

Today on Paws 4 Thought we welcome science fiction author Sarah K. L. Wilson. Tell us a little bit about yourself Sarah.

I’m a thirty-ish writer with a wicked sense of humor and a love for the incredible.

When did you first start writing?

I wrote my first science-fiction short story when I was fourteen, but my teacher critiqued it so harshly that I didn’t write fiction again until I was in my twenties.

Who are your favorite authors?

Terry Pratchett, Robert Jordan, David Weber, Tanya Huff

What inspires you to write?

Human nature. I love putting my observations about how people tick in my fiction.

Tell us a little bit about The Ex-Pacifist.

It’s the story of a girl with an intense internal moral code who suddenly discovers that her world isn’t what she thought it was. Over the course of this book, and the next two, she has to decide what to do with her disillusionment, the way her family has destroyed her future, and the threat they pose to innocent lives. Her conviction drives her, but she couldn’t do any of it without her bodyguard and their secret mental link.  And the way that mental link develops over the course of the books is one of the hidden gems of this series. I’d pay big money to have something like that in my head and I think most readers would too.

What attracts you to science fiction?

I love that you can do anything in sci-fi. Nothing is truly impossible, so the only limits are your imagination and your characters. I can’t limit myself to the real world.

(Me neither – DMK)

What do you like to do to relax?

I like to fish. Seriously. And read e-books while I fish. I also binge watch comedy on Netflix and troubleshoot truck problems with my husband.

If you had a super power what would it be?

Reading minds.

If you could have dinner with anyone real or fictional who would you choose?

Lord Vetinari, ruler of Ankh Morpork (see Terry Pratchett’s Discworld books for details)

(Excellent choice, DMK)

Here at Paws 4 Thought we love to meet our writer’s pets. Do you share your household with a furry friend?

Yes, this is Thistle. She is very shy normally and doesn’t like the camera so much.
