Pendragon is named for both her writing passion and her drive in martial-arts. She has a black-belt in Haidong Gumdo (think Samurai) and Shaolin Kung Fu–both of which influence her style of writing. To make it short, she love swords, a little too much.
For Pendragon Inman, writing non-fantasy doesn’t work. She’s tried. Every time she sits down to write “a good ol’ Earth-based, non-magical story”, her hero will turn the corner and up pops a dragon, without fail. No matter how far from fantasy she make the stories, she just can’t escape the dragons–or swords (as noted with my unhealthy addiction to them). So, she stopped trying and just started writing.
