Animals? Yes Sir/Ma’am I write about animals. Let me tell you why.
This is on my FAQ for sure, “Why would you put animals in your book. Isn’t that harder to write and for the readers like more difficult to understand?” I guess you have never read some New York Times bestselling series like Warriors, Seekers, or Leviathan? Haven’t you lived a boring enough life to not wonder what your dog, cat, or parrot might really be thinking? Are you sure they want to be petted or do they want to live their lives in the wild? Look at their undomesticated free counterparts. They seem pretty content with their lives until humans enter the equation. How do you think they feel when we lock them up in zoos? Do you really think they want you to gawk at them and take pictures of them? Well even in the minority people have begun to slowly unravel our lower intelligence mammal furry friends into what they really would want. Authors like: me, Erin Hunter, and Scott Westerfield have done our best to give you awesome books with page turning plots, eye popping facts, and a different view on the pet on your lap. I mean don’t you get enough drama at your job or school? Don’t you see enough of humans in your life? Unless you are a shepherd, animal hoarder, vet, or a zookeeper the answer is, yes. Science Fiction books based on animals are so much more engaging then normal fare because you have never seen anything like it. That is exactly why you are reading this post right now. So come to a science fiction world with talking animals near you. 😉
