I love fantasy and sci-fi stories because anything can happen. The only limit is the author’s imagination. New worlds are born on the page, places full of wonders and dangers. Yet these stories deal with genuine emotions and challenges that readers can relate to, just as much as fiction set in the real world.
Stories of conflict, love and growth are all the more fascinating when set against a backdrop of the impossible (or not-yet-possible.)
