Writing Urban Fantasy

Author S. Faxon spoke with author Dennis Crosby about tips for writing Urban Fantasy:

Talking with author Dennis Crosby about his premier urban fantasy novel, Death’s Legacy.

I had the pleasure of chatting with Dennis Crosby about his book, Death’s Legacy. The adult urban fantasy is about Kassidy Simmons, who must journey home and confront a past she’s been running from for two decades. She’ll face-off with enemies, old and new, and through a haze of fear and addiction, Kassidy will learn the secrets of her heritage, and challenge head on the one being she fears most—herself.

Following our interview, I asked Dennis if he has any advice to share with new authors looking to write urban fantasy. This is the advice he imparted:

First, read everything you can, both in your genre and outside of it. I’ve found that reading other writing styles helped me develop my own. Second, network with other writers, particularly those within your genre. Writing itself may be solitary, but we still need a community to bounce ideas off of and vent to when things get rough–and they will get rough at times. Lastly, don’t forget the human element. Remember that through all the fantasy, the players in your novel, human or otherwise, feel things. Be true to them by being true to those feelings. It’ll give them depth and help readers connect.
