Rocket Talk: A Tor.com Podcast

Rocket Talk Episode 46: Courtney Schafer

In this episode of Rocket Talk, Justin is joined by Courtney Schafer, the author of the Shattered Sigil Trilogy. She and Justin talk about her diverse interests in mountaineering and figure skating, her first two books The Whitefire Crossing and The Tainted City, her tumultuous relationship with Night Shade Books, and her third novel The Labyrinth of Flame, which she’s currently Kickstarting.

A voracious reader, Courtney Schafer took up writing when she found that fantasy books weren’t published fast enough to satisfy her craving for new worlds full of magic and wonder. When not writing, Courtney figure skates, climbs 14,000 foot peaks, squeezes through Utah slot canyons, and skis way too fast through trees. To support her adrenaline-fueled hobbies and writing habit, she received a degree in electrical engineering from Caltech and now works in the aerospace industry. She lives with her husband and son in the climber’s paradise of Colorado.
