An Interview with Ed McDonald

This summer, acclaimed author Ed McDonald will be releasing Daughter of Redwinter, the first novel in his brand-new fantasy series. The novel follows teenage protagonist Raine as she reckons with her forbidden ability to see the dead and enters Redwinter, fortress stronghold and training ground of the magical Draoihn. Ed McDonald is best known for his Raven’s Mark series. He has also contributed to Grimdark Magazine.

Steve Green and I sat down with Ed to talk about his thoughts on the post-grimdark age, magic as a resource, necromancy as a trend, and what affects his writing process.
