Once you get into the world of dystopia, it's hard to avoid plagiarism, because other people have had such powerful visions.
I love the idea that magic and witchcraft and battles between supernatural creatures could be raging all around us but just out of our sight.
I fear dying in the middle of a book. It would be so annoying to write 80,000 words and not get to the end. I'm phobic about it. So when I'm writing a book I leave messages all over the house for people to know how the story ends, and then someone can finish it for me.

I'm not very good at creating worlds. I prefer to write about the world as it is.
