Look Who’s Going to BEA: Cinda Williams Chima

Can you introduce yourself to my readers?

I’m Cinda Williams Chima, and I have two fantasy series out from Hyperion. The first, The Heir Chronicles, is a contemporary fantasy series set in the midwest. There are three books out (The Warrior Heir, The Wizard Heir, The Dragon Heir) and two more to come. The Seven Realms series is a high fantasy set in and around the Queendom of the Fells. There are two books out (The Demon King, The Exiled Queen)  two more to come, including The Gray Wolf Throne, which goes on sale August 30.

Can you introduce us to the world that you have created?

The Heir Chronicles is set in the magical world of Ohio, which is familiar to many, save those who live on the coasts. The Seven Realms is actually kind of a used world. I created it for The Star-Marked Warder, a fantasy series for adults that I never finished. I had a magical system, characters that I loved, lots of conflict, and a map. So I took two of the characters back to when they were teenagers, Raisa ana’Marianna, the heir to the throne of the Falls, and Han Alister, a street thief with a magical legacy. The series is actually a reprise of a love story gone wrong a thousand years ago.

What should readers know before stepping into your world?

The Fells is ground zero for a conflict that has been brewing among the three peoples of the Fells–the upland tribes, known as the Clans, who make tools to channel magic, the Valefolk who live in the valleys, and wizards who invaded and conquered the Seven Realms a millennium ago.

Will this be your first time attending BEA or are you a veteran?  Any advice for those who are going for the first time?

This will be my second time at BEA, so I’m hardly an expert. My advice is to read the schedule, prioritize, and plan carefully so you make the most of your visit. Or, allow serendipity to guide you, LOL.

Are you speaking on any panels during BEA?  Are there any you are looking forward to?  What panels are you planning on attending?

I’ll be attending (not speaking) the Children’s Breakfast on Tuesday and autographing galleys of The Gray Wolf Throne at 10:30 a.m.Tuesday at Table 7. I’m looking forward to some great lunches and dinners with booksellers, et al.

If someone wanted to meet up with you at BEA, who should they look for?
