Today we peel back the curtain a bit with a fantastic Black Library author – and Red Corsairs expert.
We all know Black Library has an extremely talented pool of writers who craft the universes we play in and flesh out the characters we love and love to hate. Today we get to sit down with Sarah Cawkwell and take a peek behind the curtain.
Tyler M. here with an interview with Black Library’s Sarah Cawkwell. She is most famous for writing The Gildar Rift for 40k and Valkia the Bloody for Warhammer Fantasy, but has also written a multitude of other short stories and novellas. I was lucky enough to get ahold of her and ask a few questions about what its like to write for BL, her inspiration, and what she’s working on next.
T: Most of your novels and short stories center around either the Silver Skulls or Red Corsairs (or both), what draws you to these factions?

An NHS worker by day and a writer under the cover of night, Sarah’s first novel ‘The Gildar Rift’ was published by the Black Library in 2011. Since then, she has written several other novels and short stories set in the grim-dark worlds of Warhammer. ‘Heirs of the Demon King: Uprising’ is her first full-length original work and is due for release in May 2014. Other works include tie-in fiction for World of Warcraft and several original tales for an assortment of publishers. Sarah lists her hobbies as reading, writing, reading about writing, writing about reading, online gaming and writing about online gaming. She needs to get out more.
