Erin M. Evans has a degree in Anthropology from Washington University in St. Louis, but knowing that much about anthropods led her to stick it in box and become a writer and editor instead. Using her inside knowledge, she’s a master of RPGs, using that knowledge of bones, mythology, and social constructions to flesh out fantasy worlds. A mother and wife, she also edited Forgotten Realms and other books for Wizards of The Coast for years and now she writers them. Her books include: The God Catcher, Brimstone Angels, and Brimstone Angels: Lesser Evils. She lives in Washington State and can be found online at her website: http://slushlush.com or on Facebook and Twitter as @erinmevans.
SFFWRTCHT: First things first, where’d your interest in science fiction and fantasy come from?
Erin M. Evans: It’s something I’ve always had affection for. I can’t say I remember a particular event or book that did it—I grew up with parents who watched Dr. Who and Star Trek, who delighted in making us believe in magic. It just seems right that I ended up loving it myself.
