Plotter + Pantser = Plantser: The writing of JD Blackrose

Some authors plot out their books in detail. Some write by the seat of their pants. And some, like JD Blackrose, combine these approaches to create works in a variety of genres. Her books include The Devil’s Been Busy, A Wrinkle and Crime, and The Summoner’s Mark series. Her dark fantasy story “Welcome, Death” appears in The Jewish Book of Horror and looks at the pogroms of 1918 and 1919. She also has an urban fantasy series, a genre she finds attractive because “one of the great things about urban fantasy is that a lot of the writers are female.” You can read more about her work at
