Paper Dragon Ink posted an interview today with Star Wars author Maya Kaathryn Bohnhoff. She talks about how she got started in sci-fi, how Book View Café got started, and of course Star Wars.

Q)   Your star wars novel SHADOW GAMES with Michael Reaves was just released in paperback,   what was it like writing something that had such a place in pop culture, were you two given strict guidelines in writing the characters?

A) The strictest guidelines in the GFFA (the Galaxy Far, Far Away) have to do with technology and the Jedi and Sith codes. The characters, especially characters with very little established back story, are a bit more negotiable as long as we don’t do things that violate or compromise canon. The timeline is probably the tightest area. SHADOW GAMES takes place in the months leading up to A New Hope (Episode 4) and so we did have to be careful not to put people places where they couldn’t be. Especially since we were working with Han Solo and Dash Rendar. The main female protagonist was Michael’s invention and I gave her a backstory, so we had free rein with her.
