About the Author: Mercedes Lackey

Pages 391 Gwenhwyfar: O Espírito Branco Read Rating 2.2 × Mercedes Lackey Mercedes entered this world on June 24, 1950, in Chicago, had a normal childhood and graduated from Purdue University in 1972 During the late 70 s she worked as an artist s model and then went into the computer programming field, ending up with American Airlines in Tulsa, Oklahoma In addition to her fantasy writing, she has written lyrics for and recorded nearly fifty songs for Firebird Arts Music, a small recording company specializing in science fiction folk music I m a storyteller that s what I see as my job My stories come out of my characters how those characters would react to the given situation Maybe that s why I get letters from readers as young as thirteen and as old as sixty odd One of the reasons I write song lyrics is because I see songs as a kind of story pill they reduce a story to the barest essentials or encapsulate a particular crucial moment in time I frequently will write a lyric when I am attempting to get to the heart of a crucial scene I find that when I have done so, the scene has become absolutely clear in my mind, and I can write exactly what I wanted to say Another reason is because of the kind of novels I am writing that is, fantasy, set in an other world semi medieval atmosphere Music is very important to medieval peoples bards are the chief newsbringers When I write the folk music of these peoples, I am enriching my whole world, whether I actually use the song in the text or not I began writing out of boredom I continue out of addiction I can t not write, and as a result I have no social life I began writing fantasy because I love it, but I try to construct my fantasy worlds with all the care of a high tech science fiction writer I apply the principle of TANSTAAFL There ain t no such thing as free lunch , credited to Robert Heinlein to magic, for instance in my worlds, magic is paid for, and the cost to the magician is frequently a high one I try to keep my world as solid and real as possible people deal with stubborn pumps, bugs in the porridge, and love lives that refuse to become untangled, right along with invading armies and evil magicians And I try to make all of my characters, even the evil magicians, somethingthan flat stereotypes Even evil magicians get up in the night and look for cookies, sometimes I suppose that in everything I write I try to expound the creed I gave my character Diana Tregarde in Burning Water There s no such thing as one, true way the only answers worth having are the ones you find for yourself leave the world better than you found it Love, freedom, and the chance to do some good they re the things worth living and dying for, and if you aren t willing to die for the things worth living for, you might as well turn in your membership in the human race Also writes as Misty LackeyAuthor s website

Hands down my absolute favorite retelling of the ancient Arthurian legend Lackey draws on an obscure source for core of her plot, allowing her some freedom with Gwenhwyfar s character I loved the way she made Gwen a strong and confident warrior without depriving her of her womanhood, or of her sense I especially love how cleverly she brought the tale to its resolution, moving all the parties into their inevitable positions but in a way that is utterly new As a scholar of medieval literature, Hands down my absolute favorite retelling of the ancient Arthurian legend Lackey draws on an obscure source for core of her plot, allowing her some freedom with Gwenhwyfar s character I loved the way she made Gwen a strong and Mercedes Lackey s version of Guinevere s story is mostly distinctive in her choice of sources she has taken elements mainly from the Welsh tradition, and tried to weave a coherent story out of them The three Gwenhwyfars named in the Triads, the abductions by both Melwas and Medraut, Gwenhwyfach It s very interesting that she chose to use the Welsh tales.
