Great chat with two wonderful fantasy/scifi writers. So good to visit with Dia and Sylvia at the same time -- was like a cool time warp to have them both here together.

Thanks readergirlz for all you're doing for Teen Read Week

Enchantress From the Stars was my all time favorite book in high school. I can still remember the exact spot in the library where it was shelved because I would visit it whenever I didn't have it checked out.

Also loved The Far Side of Evil and placed myself in Elana's shoes over and over in my head.

I gave Enchantress to my daughter a few years ago and was ecstatic when she loved it too.
