6 Books with Jane Yolen

The prolific Jane Yolen is an American writer of fantasy, science fiction, and children's books. She is the author or editor of more than 400 books

Today she lists her Six Books.

1. What book are you currently reading? 

How to Find your Way in the Dark 
by Derek B. Miller

2. What upcoming book are you really excited about?

Bad Company by Adam Stemple

3. Is there a book you’re currently itching to re-read?

 No.  I already have a stack lined up on my bedside table that will take me about six months to get through.

4. A book that you love and wish that you yourself had written.

Any Peter Beagle story. Or ANY of Diana Wynne Jones' books.

5. What’s one book, which you read as a child or a young adult, that has had a lasting influence on your writing?

FERDINAND about the bull who refuse dto fight in the bull ring. Not only was it important to me because my father was then off in London while then buzz bombs raged (he came home
wounded ) but the short, lyrical text rang deep in my heart.

6. And speaking of that, what’s your latest book, and why is it awesome?

 I have a book of love stories and poems (published and unpublished in the fantasy/science fiction mode,
called Scarlet Circus which I hope will lift the hearts of readers of all ages teen and up making them smile or sigh, but always making them aware of the many ways one can love and be loved..

Thank you, Jane!
