Who better to talk world building than #1 New York Times bestselling author Laurell K. Hamilton, who built her career off of the Anita Blake series, which is now on book 30. Laurell created a world, within a world, something not very many authors can pull off. Laurell gives you a look inside her brain and tips on how to create a successful world that will make even J.R.R Tolkein jealous. 

Laurell K. Hamilton is the author of the #1 New York Times bestselling Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter series and the Merry Gentry, Fey Detective series. A Terrible Fall of Angels, the first novel in an exciting new series, features Detective Zaniel Havelock in a world where angels and demons walk amount us.

With more than 40 novels published, Laurell continues to create groundbreaking fiction inspired by her lifelong love of monster movies, ghost stories, mythology, folklore, and things that go bump in the night. Her love of the macabre, books in general, animals, and nature led her to degrees in English and biology.
