Don't laugh, but David Gerrold's books on his work for Star Trek have interesting comments not just on writing for Trek, but writing in general. Stephen King's Danse Macabre (haven't read his On Writing) also has some cool insights.
I'd like to write some of the aforementioned retold-fairy-tales-in-novel form. I'd also love to write a Sherlock Holmes pastiche. (Maybe at the screenwriters' meetings, I can get some tips on how to adapt the Holmes novel Valley of Fear.)
I love fantasy (yea Harry Potter!) and am especially in love with the retold-fairy-tale genre. I also love historical fiction and mysteries. Major Sherlock Holmes fan (whether or not it's actually written by Doyle).
As I said, I'm a children's librarian in the South Jersey area. I've dabbled in fanfiction for some of the fandoms I like and would like to branch out!
I'd like to get back into writing--maybe even get published one day! As a children's librarian, I'd like to write for kids/young adults--you can find the best fantasy in those sections.
