It went beyond the limitations of what I previously thought a graphic novel had, and it inspired me to look at writing books the same way. I write every series with experimental styles, and I don't want any of my books to sound like the previous series I've written, and if I have to change my writing style or add in a new technique because I believe it would help the story, then I'll do it!
The Sandman graphic novels, for all the reasons above! I think The Girl from the Well series would be gorgeous as graphic novels, but I would want the subversively, beautifully horrifying Junji Ito treatment. My next series, Wicked as You Wish , will be out in March of ! I've got a couple of other WIPs in the works—strangely enough, they're adult fantasies this time! The characters that sprung to mind for them are much older and requires a lot more things that kids usually wouldn't be doing—they involve a gay heist and a demonic Regency romance, respectively!

The idea for Spy Goddess came to me one day when I saw a commercial on television about a school you could attend to become a private investigator. I thought it was interesting that you could go to PI HIGH as I immediately dubbed it, and the idea kicked around in my brain for a little while. No, a novel has to have many different parts like characters, words, punctuation and other stuff.
I had none of those things yet. Then one day this character Rachel Buchanan appeared to me in my imagination. I saw her immediately: what she looked and sounded like, what her background was and her voice came to me like a gust of wind. I decided that I was going to take Rachel and send her to this school and see what happened.

Elle Casey has jumped by leaps and bounds to my personal top authors, sharing the space with David Dalglish, R. I am recommending it to everyone I know!! Such a fun read. Great characters and action. Will not disappoint. Jayne is one of those lead characters that you will just fall in love with. Funny, strong, and extremely likeable. I lost track of time while reading these books. Didn't know what day it was, what time it was The characters are still just as funny as they were in the other books…This is a must read for anyone who loves fantasy, magic, and a funny story that is extremely complicated but so well-written that you don't even notice all the complexities.
