Writing came very naturally to me. I got into journalism because it was a place to get a job where writing was the focus.

It means everything to me. My guiding principle in life is the same thing that guides Kay Scarpetta – you don't abuse power.

It has long been my contention that the historical novel and the epic fantasy are sisters under the skin, that the two genres have much in common. 

George R. R. Martin (GRRM) - American Novelist

Fantasists enjoy certain freedoms that historical novelists do not. I can surprise my readers by killing kings and other major characters, but the fate of the kings and conquerors in the real world is right there in the history texts, we know who lives and who dies before we ever crack the novel open.

I have images and things that are like malware. I can't get them out of my head. I've seen things that I don't show my readers, I heard things I don't ever tell my readers

When I first went to the morgue and started doing all this, you really don't know what it is going to do to you until it has already happened and then it is too late and there's no getting out of it and there is no going back

It’s the Golden Age of Television right now. It’s just amazing.

George R. R. Martin (GRRM) - American Novelist

We really have two audiences now, which is a unique challenge for a TV show. We have the viewers who are coming to the TV show without any knowledge of the books. And we have the readers, who have read the books, many times in many cases. Sometimes those two audiences give very different reactions to the same things.

Prose and film have different techniques and weapons that they use.

As I say, we were projects kids; we lived in public housing, so I knew at a very early age that we were poor. I don't want to play the victim card. It wasn't too bad.

I knew at a very early age that we were poor. But I also knew that my family hadn't always been poor.

My father was a distant figure. I don't think that he ever understood me, and I don't know that I ever understood him. We didn't use the term then, but you could probably say he was a functioning alcoholic.

My first three novels, I just wrote them and gave them to my publisher. Nobody was waiting for the next one and that was so nice.

I look back on it now and say, gad, what an interesting childhood I had, what an interesting environment I lived in — so much more interesting than kids who grew up in the suburbs.
