New York Times bestselling novelist Cinda Williams Chima began writing romance novels in middle school. Her award-winning Heir Chronicles young adult urban fantasy series includes The Warrior Heir (Hyperion, 2006), The Wizard Heir (2007), and The Dragon Heir (2008). Two more Heir books are under contract.
Chima’s Seven Realms fantasy series debuted with The Demon King (October, 2009) followed by The Exiled Queen (September, 2010) and The Gray Wolf Throne (August, 2011.) The Crimson Crown is scheduled for fall, 2012.
Chima's presentations and writing workshops can be geared to teen and adult writers and readers, librarians, and language arts teachers. Visits are available in-person and via Skype.
Teacher comment: I was amazed at the apparent ease with which you guided the almost 60 7th graders and their teachers into writing their own fantasy. By the end of your visit, every student had a workable draft, and a solid understanding of the elements readers require for a story to be judged "good".
Re Skype visit: Cinda, thank you for a great conversation today! Your message was right on to the audience and the kids really did not want you to sign off!
