"Do you like contemporary retelling. I've I've seen some these before where it's like, Cinderella this is actually one that I watched I. loved it. But it was like Cinderella but they're prince's Liga shoemaker and it was like this. It was set for modern times. Do you like those as well? I would totally check them I think I love the fantasy one more but I would definitely still read modern wants Rela by like actually post in. And things like that. That are still really awesome. So I would probably read pretty much any one of them. Yeah. So what you like about the fantasy genre. I love that you can have dragons and griffins and UNICORNS elves, and so many different creatures but you can title up with like real world issues like I said Princess Cora gets bullied in there's rumors about her. And she's not the strongest when she starts out and I think that's a really good message that I think young readers especially need today to know that like you might be facing these things and other people face these things. But hopefully, once you see your favorite characters doing them, you can kinda learn to overcome them, and so I love that you can kind of weave these real world issues within fantasy and still have a fun adventure whether that's dragons or pirates. Or bears might know. All that kind of fun stuff So and I love magic I just love the different ways that magic in function and you really only get that in fantasy i. mean you can have some that's still like got Savannah's Inet but fantasy is just my. Favorite Genre where my heart belongs I'd be like Oh. It's. It's so good. Do you have any favorite fantasy books that you would like to shout out? Oh, man. So may some of already mentioned you know like? Like frost blood is such a good one and care. All is really cool. It's got a really interesting kind of magic bit to it I'm trying to think like what else are just so many good ones Dune I really liked Dune Bhai Laurie Langdon, and Carry Corp that's like a WII version of outlander or they go back in time it's almost like a brigadier in retailing if you've seen that musical as to really love that one too to off just so so many that I love. and. I'm that's that's an adult series but still got really cool magic. That's awesome. I just wanted to shout out Nassir you might like this book as well. anyone who listened to this show knows that I'm absolutely obsessed with the throat of glass series. So I just want a dimension that. So if like these other recommendations as another. High fantasy lots of magic. Yes..

"The feed for this podcast. You can actually hear me listen. You can actually listen to me interviewing mercer. Mayer to. God's amazing. Thank you. She is so wonderful sheepshanks. Great. Yeah. So are there any writers that you think are similar to you writing is like you use similar phrases or stumbling that? Maybe Ellie. Blake, wrote frost blood, which is really cool book about a girl who has frost powers in a world full of people firepower. So she's a little bit similar I Love Stephanie Garbage Work I'm not sure I can compare myself to her herself is so so well written Mary visceral. You feel like you're there. So I love that I wish I could write as well as Mary Pearson Cause Deception. If you haven't read that one, it's got a really cool point of view twist So I would love love to be compared to them. That's great. So what made you want to be an author? Well. I grew up as a child who had asthma and when I was little, I would have to take a lot of medications one of which was like a big machine like a big breathing machine that had a mask, the Delaware way at administered missed medicine and so when I was doing that the machine was very loud. So it was really hard to like watch TV or really do much of anything My mom would reach me because when she would sit behind me, I could hear in my ear. And so when she would read to me, I wasn't a sick kid anymore you know I was Harry Potter under the stairs or a hobbit on an adventure or princess you know going after a dragon or anything like that and so I loved the adventure I loved the escape and I think even in today's world there's there's so much negativity in the world that I loved to create something. Where where people can go and they can't escape and I just have such an active imagination that I love sharing my stories with other people and I hope that they bring them joy and that they can enter into these stories and maybe see what my characters go through and come back to the world a little happier a little bit more prepared to face their obstacles in their own lives. I love that so much that is like what are the sweetest stories I've ever heard on? That is really amazing. D did You have any specific favorite books as a kid? Oh man I mean I loved Madeleine lingle's wrinkle in time. That was a big one anything by Robin McKinley She had like the outlaws a share would which I loved again made cabot grew up reading making habit all the time like sister of the traveling pants, all that good stuff was just. So important to me as Oh, like the giver a loved the Giver House. Another good one so so many books as you can tell, I spent a lot of time..

"Yeah. So, how'd you choose what Song to listen to over and over like? Oh, it's hands. If I'm writing like an intense battle seeing, there are a couple that will go to like a battle song from chronicles of Narnia is. Called the battle from writing really like beep seen I'll pick like a fun song and sometimes they have music or something like lyrics and sometimes they don't just depends how I'm feeling If I can find a song that has like the field to it of what I'm writing I. think that's that's the best part. Could you share a couple of the songs that you chose for like through new book of gold or? Your cut. So one of the big ones there's a song called I. Think it's just called gold by Britain Nicole. It's just such a fun upbeat song and it's it keeps saying you're worth more than gold and it just really spoke me when I was writing the books and so I love that one for tiger a big one was roar by Katy Perry. because. You're near me roar, and that was all with that book was about was hearing her roar and helping her find kind of the tiger within helping her take her kingdom back So yeah, those are a couple of my favorite ones. I love that. Yeah. Those are great songs too. So do you hide any Easter eggs in yearbooks? Oh. Yes. I, do actually I hide quite a few and most of them only my family friends are going to pick up on but I hide a lot of names. Of people that I know within the book. So if you see like a mountain named something or an animal or like a weird creature that you're like, okay, she totally made up that name, try looking at it backwards and see what it spells Also all hide little things that just means a lot to me. So like one of my favorite TV shows growing up and I still love is the twilight zone from the sixties. The all black and white show and so in one of the Intros to one of the season's one of the famous lines, there's a signpost up ahead..

"So I, really just wanted to take her my character who is a little bit softer and help her find her way. That sounds so cool. So can you give our listeners and myself to? Any like writing tips for writing strong female characters Oh yes I mean I think the most important thing is really the first and foremost a strong female character doesn't have like wield a sword or anything like that. You know they can be witty they can be smart they can be funny. They can use all those sorts of things to get themselves out of trouble you can make jokes they can use their mind they can be like macgyver and. Just, like create things that can really good inventors So don't always think like, Oh, the character has to be the strongest because in the beginning of a touch of gold Princess Cora, who is the daughter of King Midas she's a very sought character. She's actually she's bullied she has gold skin. So there's lots of rumors about her you know people think like, Oh, she turned back into a statue at night or who leaves golden footprints or Something like that so she is a very soft characters very timid, but when she's forced to leave her safe palace behind and go out into the real world, that's when she really starts to blossom and come into her own So really think about your character arc, you know, how is your character going to progress? How are they going to go from one state to another? Are they going to be strong? The entire time? ARE THEY GONNA learn? That they need to be a little bit softer let people in That's kind of the case with with for Qatari and Tiger Queen Book that's that's base up that short story we were talking about because she's a very sword wielding character like she will cut you down in an instant, but she almost has to learn to be a little softer a little bit more open and learn to trust other people So that's kind of her character just..

"How are you doing today doing really well, how are you I am doing great. Can you tell me about your books? Yes. So I'm young adult author of young adult. I have three books. My third book just came out very recently So the first book is called a touch of gold and it's about the cursed daughter of King Midas who has to set out to retrieve her father's golden against stolen and the sequel as the book that just came out it's called a curse gold and it follows the. Daughter paying might, as she tries to break the Golden Curse and then my other book is called Tiger Queen and it is a retelling of the short story, the later tiger kind of dealing the infamous ending for anyone who's read it that cliffhanger ending and is about a warrior princess who fight suitors in an arena to win her right to rule. That sounds awesome. I've actually never heard of that short story before. So that sounds sobral or you can find it your listeners can find you find it just google the lady or the Tiger by Frank Richard. Stockton. It's available for Free Online. It's really short just a couple of pages maybe two three pages long. But I read it in Grade School, and it stayed with me because it has a cliffhanger ending just it's infamous it's not even famous it's infamous because. It's that like all nailbiting. Oh. Wow. It's so in your book, Do you answer the cliffhanger like do I knew that was like one of the inspirations for the book was to give that story the ending it always should have had that is so cool. So how did you work on coming up with the ending to that? Well so story short when I read that story in Grade School with my teacher, my teacher, you know asked us all right class. What do you think happened in the end and there's there's kind of two options that are open. In the end of that story and I raised my hand of course you know I'm like her Miami Grainger. For raise my hand and she's like Annie what's what's the answer and I said, well, it could be either and I could just see the look of disappointment on her face of like. Well, that wasn't the point. The point is to figure out which one it was. Based on the little information you're given and so at just stayed with me that I was like man I don't know this answer and So yeah, it was really about coming up with an ending that satisfied the entire story and gave a little bit more agency to the main character. That sounds so cool. Yeah everyone. Go look up that short story because from what I'm hearing from the sounds really great and then go read. Anne's books. Please do. Please So what interested you in the story of King Midas? Well I really love fairy tales and then the idea behind the.

There's just completely different types of home situations, often and juicy are also boosting online learning opportunities.

"That typifies why I've always been fascinated by it, but that that interest in history creamy predated all that did not well. I grew up in a family of storytellers. And so my parents, particularly my mother, she didn't differentiate between fictional stories in real ones. She used to read to me really stories she played Annie Sullivan. That was a real story, and her favorite book to read to me was a book called The Microbe Hunters. Good, Because terrified it is careful. So sweet Dreams. Eight year old Max, those were the stories read to me, but my mother told me these were stories of hope. These were stories where people have been dying and dying and dying. And instead of just I don't you know what medieval Europe used to do? You know, Pray, Whip yourself and kill the Jews. They started to invent science and that started to help them actually combat these plagues have to tell you the name of our womanhood never scared me until I read Germinal for because he becomes the person who by identifying this really opens the door to where we are now. Yes, he really what? He was an astronomer in reverse. Instead of looking at the stars. He looked inward, and we actually got to see these microscopic creatures that we didn't know existed by what initially planted a heretic fed gonna baby Oh, yeah. Oh, yeah, cause before it used to be called bad air. When I went to school in the Caribbean, I learned about how it was called the White man's grave yard. White people would go to the Caribbean, set up their plantations and just die in droves because they had absolutely no idea that disease came from mosquitoes. They thought it was just bad air coming in. And so was this swamp air. They didn't know that the mosquitoes Carried malaria carried other diseases that would then kill them. S so interesting, too, Because when we talk about this, Lewis the last time you were here in World War Z the idea of dealing with this kind of sort of institutional inertia and what disease Khun bring As metaphor. Was an interesting way to turn this thing into something that would connect for people on mass. Yeah, because I think that's how human beings deal with any kind of crisis doesn't have to be disease. I think initially we have what's called an ego defense mechanism. We have this wall in our mind. Which wants to protect us from things that scare us into insanity. So we instinctively say, Ah, it's fine. It's fine. I'm going to be fine. I'm going to be fine. And if you take that too far, you deny the facts and you'll prepare and then you tip over into panic. Oh, my God. Oh, my God! Oh, my God, And that is on an individual level. It's also on a societal level and you see it. You saw it in the plague of my generation in AIDS. I can't get it. It's a gay disease. It's an I V drug user. It's Haitians, all that and then suddenly we tipped over in the mid eighties to Oh, my God, it's everywhere. It's on toilet seats. It's on cops. It's on door knobs. And you have real stories about doctors, not treating patients and about Mt. Is not treating car crash victims. Oh, I could get AIDS. And we knocked out AIDS with public education. There's still no cure there. Still no vaccine, But in the 19 eighties, we sent out the C. Everett Koop. Remember that Amish admiral looking guy? The surgeon general surgeon general mailed out a pamphlet to every American household called Understanding AIDS. And that was the turning point. I remember having AIDS week at my school at Crossroads. Where we learned about AIDS. Here's how it's transmitted. Here's how you can't get it. Here's how you can, and here's how you can stop from getting it. And that's how we as a nation be AIDS with education. But that took two generations that we're talking about 30 years of learned behavior really did it took is a lot of initial panic and stigmatizing with dismissal. Then panel just Mishil, then panic. And huge stigmatizing. I don't remember. There was a comedian Sam Kinison, who had a huge joke about basically saying thanks Gay America for giving us the black plague of the eighties, and then the whole crowd stood up and cheered. And then you have the final stage, which is forgetting. Because you think about stars. You know, Iroh World War Z based on SARS. I was not looking forward. I would love to say that I predicted this, but no, I was talking about history. SARS had just happened. I'm modeled my zombie virus on that. Assuming that we learned our lesson. And we hadn't We forgot about it. We went back to making cheap iPhones and sweatshops in China, and now we're all paying the price. Because obviously the almost a conditional reaction to pain is an impulse to forget. This fascinates me because as a writer, you trade information and the way information is traded really simple terms and and That people now have access to so much information, but they aren't absorbing it or being actually really selective information. If they take in must be maddening to you. What is so maddening about it is as much as I would love to simply wag my finger at China. And say you have a you have a quasi fascist government and you didn't tell your people the truth. We have different problems here. In China. People are getting sick because they don't know the truth in America were getting sick because we don't care. Because we can surrender to apathy. Oh, I can't get it. It's not a big deal, not a big deal or greed. Oh, hey, I don't want to cancel this giant convention or trade show because I'm going to lose a lot of money. We have misinformation. Oh, I've heard on this website that this famous Hollywood celebrity told me this healing Crystal would work. In a democracy. We all have to be the leaders and we all have to grow up. I find that is thinking about specifically in World War Z. How your narrative basically goes from one institution to another. Ofwhich. Ignore the truth. And given that there's so much science now, basically, we we communicate through science. Basically, science dictates every way all the everyday details. Our lives isn't a little troubling to you that that we still Can make ourselves as ignorant as willfully ignorant as we do, I think certainly where science is concerned, We are the victims of our own success. Specifically when you think about anti vaccine A generation ago, There were no anti vaxxers because the grand parents were greatest generation. A grand parents had all grown up with horrific Killing and crippling diseases. Now the grand parents are baby boomers. They grew up getting vaccinated, so they don't have that sense Memory. They don't have that really deep, dark fear of what could be coming. So when their Children say I'm not going to vaccinate your grandchildren, they go well, that's your choice. As opposed to a generation ago where those grand parents would've smacked you. You know, in the back of the head saying, Are you crazy? No, my my Mentor II. I can't say his name because I haven't asked permission. But he's a very famous actor and writer, and he taught me how to write, and he's a family friend used to vacation together. And at this resort we'd all go to in the eighties. They brought in a misuse, and my mother said to him. Oh, you've got to get a massage..
