Description of "Damosel: In Which the Lady of the Lake Renders a Frank and Often Startling Account of her Wondrous Life and Times"

WATER SPIRIT DAMOSEL, the Lady of the Lake, glides through arthurian legend like a glamorous wraith, shimmering and shifting between the worlds of fairies and humans. Her knowledge is vast (magic, metal, men's hearts) and leads to her greatest honor—and worst mistake. Damosel makes a promise to the wizard Merlin to protect young King Arthur, and then dares to break it—with WATER SPIRIT DAMOSEL, the Lady of the Lake, glides through Arthurian legend like a glamorous wraith, shimmering and shifting between the worlds of fairies and humans.

Her knowledge is vast (magic, metal, men's hearts) and leads to her greatest honor—and worst mistake. Damosel makes a promise to the wizard Merlin to protect young King Arthur, and then dares to break it—with devastating results. All the while, 17-year-old Twixt—a dwarf in a world where difference can be deadly—finds himself freed from his cruel masters and moving closer to the one place he never expected to see: King Arthur's court at Camelot.

Stephanie Spinner intertwines the two narratives of Damosel and Twixt to draw us straight into the rich Arthurian land of enchantment. From the Hardcover edition.

About Author

I was born in Davenport, Iowa, and grew up in Rockaway Beach, New York. I read straight through my childhood, with breaks for food, sleep, and the bathroom. I went to college in Bennington, Vermont, moved to New York City, and took a job in publishing so I could get paid for reading.

I read so much bad fiction that I needed a break, so I moved to London, and from there I traveled to Morocco, Iran, I was born in Davenport, Iowa, and grew up in Rockaway Beach, New York. I read straight through my childhood, with breaks for food, sleep, and the bathroom. I went to college in Bennington, Vermont, moved to New York City, and took a job in publishing so I could get paid for reading.

I read so much bad fiction that I needed a break, so I moved to London, and from there I traveled to Morocco, Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan India, Nepal, and Ceylon. I came back to America, wandered around some more - to Mexico, Guatemala, and Belize - and on returning to New York decided to study Tibetan Buddhist painting (called thangka painting) in Boulder, Colorado. I painted thangkas for many years.

Each one took anywhere from several weeks to a few months to complete, and at long last I understood that this was not the ideal way for me to make a living. Only a few hundred Americans collected thangkas, and they wanted old ones, painted by Tibetan monks. It was time to make a change.

So I took another publishing job, this time in children's books. I found that I liked children's books a lot, and before long, I became an editor. Years passed.

I was encouraged to write. I scoffed at the idea that I had anything to write about. I edited some wonderfully talented authors - Virginia Hamilton, Philip Isaacson, Clyde Robert Bulla, Gloria Whelan, Robin McKinley, Joan Vinge, Garth Nix, and Chris Lynch, among others - with great enjoyment.

Writing seemed like torture by comparison. Then, to my amazement, I found myself writing a book and having a good time - simultaneously! The book was ALIENS FOR BREAKFAST, and I enjoyed writing it because my co-author was Jonathan Etra.

Jon (who died of heart disease in 1990) was a close friend with a wild sense of humor, and collaborating with him changed my opinion of writing forever. After ALIENS FOR BREAKFAST, and ALIENS FOR LUNCH, which we also co-wrote, I began to think that writing could be interesting fun. And now that I've been doing it full-time for more than ten years, I can tell you why I like it better than a job.

First, I can work in my bathrobe. (To the FedEx man and the UPS man, I am "the woman in the plaid flannel robe".) Second, I can eat when I'm hungry, choose when to take phone calls, and walk my dogs any time. Third, the only meetings I have - and they're short - are with the dry cleaner and the post office ladies.

Fourth, I can read whatever I please. I may tell people I'm doing research when I read about horse-trekking, or hunting in ancient Greece, or 16 ways to better compost, but the truth is, I'm not doing research, I'm having a good time. Which I think is still allowed.
