Why I Write Fantasy - Cinsearae S.

Welcome Cinsearae S. author of dark paranormal romance, dark humor and horror.

Amber: Why do you write fantasy?
Cinsearae S.: The reason why I write fantasy is easy. :) The real world is boring as hell. I grew up reading the likes of Poe, King, L.J. Smith, R.L. Stine and Christopher Pike. Those worlds were SO much more interesting than the one I lived in, and eventually I started to create my own worlds with the same volumes of eeriness and paranormal predicaments. The big question would be whether I would want to live in my own worlds or not. Yes AND no. Fantasy is a hell of a lot of fun, but can also be dangerous in a way, lol!

Amber: What brought you to write about the dark side?

Cinsearae S.: The 'darkside' of fantasy has always been a part of me, and has kept me a bit estranged from the mundane world, but still, I wouldn't have it any other way. Creepy movie? I'm there. Creepy book, especially if it’s non-fiction? I'm on it. There's something about the odd and unusual, the mystifying and arcane, and the exotic and dangerous, that has always kept me enraptured. It has also brought me together with many other like-minded folks that share in that same world, with extraordinary talents in more than just writing! I also created my own dark writers group, ( which houses some exceptional authors such as Anton Glascow, Tony-Paul de Vissage, Kody Boye, Mahogany Silverrain, Annie Alverez, Camille McKeever, Jeff Mullen, Phyllis Sullivan, and John Neumeister, to name a few! And to encourage new and emerging writers with those same tastes and a desire to be heard, I created Dark Gothic Resurrected magazine, which has been going strong these past few years, also winning awards from Predators & Editors in 2008 and 2009. I'm a firm believer that you can find a lot of beauty in the darkness...if you aren't too afraid to look!

Amber: Why do you think readers love fantasy?
Cinsearae S.: I believe most folks today need that 'escape' from the harshness (and boredoms) of reality, and don't mind delving into someone else's fantasy, if only for an hour or two. Fantasy offers tons of options not available in 'the real world' and gives them a chance to indulge a bit. Everyone needs a break sometime! :)

Amber: Would you write fantasy even if no one read it?
Cinsearae S.: I sure would. I was writing ever since 3rd grade, before I even THOUGHT of taking it more seriously and onto to the publishing level. Writing is my OWN escape from things, lol!

  3. I completely agree with you, Cinsearae. What's life without a little darkness. Lol.

    Mary Corrales,

  4. I agree. Fantasy is way more interesting than the real world. I don't even like to read a book unless it has some paranormal/fantasy/dark or any other weird element to it.

  5. I can't believe I sent out those email and spelled Boleyn WRONG!

  6. I think I'd go nuts if paranormal and fantasy elements didn't exist in the world, lol!
