Your mythic landscape, the interdimensional hotspot Scalentine, has a well-developed geography and a cornucopia of Weres, Feys and Hermaphroditic four-armed sentients. Was there a lot of detailed note-taking and did you have character bibles to keep track of all your multi-coloured creations?
GS: I probably should have! To be honest, I just tend to think of something, go, ‘Ooh, cool, let’s put that in’ and work out later how it fits into the story. There are things and people I had to cut from the first one, or mentioned only briefly, which I hope to put in future books; and some which may never find a home, at least not in this series.
