What made you put a modern day girl into a fantasy setting?

As a child and teenager, I think it was always something I dreamed would happen to myself- somehow stumble into a fantasy world and have great adventures there. Now I’ve written Memory’s Wake, I certainly don’t want to be in poor Memory’s shoes though! She has it pretty hard.

Also, I think it’s important for readers to have someone they can relate to, that is more like them than the rest of the inhabitants of the fantasy land.
