The So Silver, So Bright Drive-by: Lisa Mantchev

Lisa Mantchev is the creator of the glorious Théâtre Illuminata and the unfortgettable Beatrice Shakespeare Smith. She is mum to the Sugar Bean and Tiny Doom, the possessor of an awesome collection of corsets, a hearter of both donuts and danishes, a perspicacious editor and a Damned Fine Writer.

1. If I wasn’t a writer, I would …
… have a lot of free time on my hands.

2. The spark for Eyes Like Stars came from …
… the name “Beatrice Shakespeare Smith” and the opening line “The fairies flew on wires.”

3. The worst idea (literary or otherwise) I’ve ever had was …
… putting purple cabbage into a batch of soup. It turned everything in the pot gray. *blech*

4. My five major writing inspirations are …
… Lewis Carroll, Terry Pratchett, Neil Gaiman, Patricia McKillip, and Juliet Marillier.

5.Donuts or danishes?

Her web (yes, web) is here.
