I don’t set out to write themes into my work, they come to life on their own, but that isn’t to say I’m unaware they exist. When they do I subtly enhance them later. Still, in the beginning, it’s about plot and characters.
Themes might not be part of the plan, but one reason the fantasy genre attracts me is how well it lends itself to examining them.
The latest to work its way into my fiction is female friendship. It first surfaced in the last half of Bk1 and then in a couple of short stories. In Bk2 it’s become a major theme.
