Hope you enjoy it listening so ryan. What book hooked you I would say it was a series of books and that series would be the percy jackson. series I feel like when. I read those books. And i always talk about them but i feel like when i read them as a kid. They opened up this new world to me of just kind of fantasy. That was really accessible. i'd. I'd seen movies. Like i think my intro to fantasy is probably the chronicles of narnia. The moving and When i went to re books in that genre. I found him to be so inaccessible so lofty hand. When i read percy jackson. I realized that it wasn't that. I didn't have the brain to like get through this genre. It was just the way it was being presented to me. Wasn't in a way where. I could really relate or see myself in the tech. So percy jackson was the first time i did relate to the character i felt like the book was speaking to me in house able to go on an adventure kind of adventure that i grew up to be a writer who would take readers on similar. Adventures i had that experience. Where i really felt a of the narrative and spoken to the narrative with all those fantasy elements through. Percy jackson. Was it percy jackson that really got you into reading or were you a reader long before those books came in your life I've always been a reader. Like ever since i discovered what reading was i was day passionate about reading so probably when i was in three years old. I was already collecting books because my grandma had this huge picture book collection. I got really into those Into dr seuss and had collection of his book. So i've always been reading into as i've gotten older. I've just kind of followed the trends in the books that targeted me at every age so middle school.

Who's an author of a number of great way books and her latest is the love curse of melody mcintyre so you're going to hear her journey into publishing gene.

So i thought about this a lot because there are a lot of different answers and i know you said which was very helpful that i pick something. That childhood estimate influence me as a writer so i went back and forth. I was thinking first about babysitter's club. Which i imagine you've probably had other authors and that was definitely the book that as a child or the series of child was a hugely influential on me and is probably the reason i wanted to become a writer beginning The the stan. Which was my yearbook in high school and by stephen king i should say By annan martin. I should clarify that as well familiar. You should go back and read them all. There's a couple of hundred they're really good anyway. The stand by stephen king was a favorite book in high school. And i thought about that because that would also definitely influenced me in terms of like the way it handles point of view. The dig epic story in the world building everything. I'm definitely hooked me. But i think the when i landed on the book that influenced me as a writer. Hooked me in that way is boy meets boy by david. Love with on With is a now. Classic of waie came out in two thousand three. And i'm david within for anyone who triggered wasn't listening to this podcast familiar but is an author who's very well known as well as an editor of a lot of great children's books and what was his first novel and it was part of a wave of Why document right around the beginning of the two thousands and that sort of began the new wave that we are currently still in that began with a very small but very very influential series of books.

"This is what book you. I'm Brock Shelley and thanks for listening. This week I have. Marissa. Mayer. Who is the author of? Renegade series lunar chronicles, but she's out with a contemporary book instant Karma coming out on November third. So we talk about. What broader to this book and just her podcast that she has the happy writer podcast. Great Conversation. So hope you enjoy. Listening. So. What. Book hooked you. So for me, it would have to be the Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings which my. Fantasy loving uncle gave to me when I was ten years old in fifth grade and. I feel like it was probably a birthday gift My my birthday is in February, but then I didn't actually start them until the summer and I remember reading the Hobbit when my grandparents took me and my older brother off on a camping trip in there are V and you know we're at this lovely campground and the whole trip they were like, let's go swimming. Let's go hiking and I just wanted to sit in the RV and read that book and so that was. For me the I really true high fantasy book that I had read and the first book that I remember thinking. This is one hundred percent created in someone's imagination. This is not set in our world. It's not from the past. It's not in the future it is brand new and this that idea that someone could create an entire world and different creatures a different language all of it was just mind blowing for me. And I remember just thinking how cool that was that this writer was able to come up with all of that and so that that was really inspiring to me knowing at the time that someday I wanted to be a writer myself. And I've talked to a Lot of people about Lord of the Rings and the Hobbit, and though even say now as an adult, they had a hard time. Getting into the story or understanding the story following it so Coming to it as young agents especially, you know the Hobbit is more the book that a lot of a young kids get to but. Do you remember having any problems with books especially, the Lord of the Rings, which is a little more denser at.

"This is what book hooked you. I'm Brock Shelley, and thanks for listening, I guess, for this episode is is about sterling who's booking? These witches don't bring is out now from razor bell. I was glad to get the chance to talk to is about to hear what she was into when she was in her why years, how she got into writing and what books have really influenced her right now. So listen. So isabelle. What book hooked you? So the book that hooked me was L enchanted by Gail Carson LeVine. I actually still have my childhood copy that has the instinct get with reading sticker in it. So what time what how old were you, then when you read this book? Oh, jeez. Probably, and he's third or fourth grade. Okay. And why this book, what is about this book? That is the book that really comes to mind when asked this question. Yes, this is the first book that I can remember, you know, picking out the book reading it, and just wanting to live in that world view books that I read over and over and over again, as a child, I'm not much of every reader still to this day. And this is one that I always wanted to go back to, and especially loved, you know, all the different creatures and all the different made up languages. It would just so captivating too. Young me just wanted to disappear into those pages. So tell us then because this was a book that you read kind of in your middle grade years, what we would call now. What type of child when you kind of reflect back with type of child were you that this is a book that kind of really you latched onto? See I was very much a school kid in that. I love school. I loved learning. And I think that's part of what I liked about this book, is that, you know, Ella with a girl who was very smart. He was very funny inches good with languages. And that was that was without her more so than yeah, she wasn't mean she ended up with the prince, but she wasn't to Princess. She was kind of a normal, girl, the wisdom, you know, obviously with some difficulties with her. You know, very Lessing cash Peters, but I think just being a very. Kind of wish kid when it wasn't cool for girls to be at the pub, one of the reasons rather like this bucks. And so over all then beyond just this book, what type of reader were you were you someone that read widely, or was Ellen Shanta kind of that one book that kind of cropped up, but for the most part, maybe you weren't as big a a reader as most. Know I was a huge. I loved reading definitely kind of propelled me into a right a lot fantasy. You know, like most people my age grew up with Harry Potter near those coming out right around the same time that was roughly the same age hairy. So I guess I'm gonna last fantasy and I also read a lot of once I got to lose before it, even we really had why it was like the team fiction section and borders. I lived in action when I was growing up on all the older. So then, as you got older more in that what we call now the why a stage where you a big reader still did books were you, did you still have quiet for books? I'll say or did kind of adolescence in school kind of slow things down down, as far as you're reading life goes in high school. I still is very much a big reader. I do drop off really. When I went to college, but in high school, I read I read all the twilight books, I read almost everything that make cat it put out. I read the entire, I think, Cate Tiernan, the sweet series twenty bucks in that series at all of those, I was just reading, constantly I had grew up with a ton of siblings and reading, kind of like my alone time, just keep from the men, that's at home. And was it around this time that you kind of had the ideal or were making attempts at writing stories of your own? Not really. I really didn't do much writing. When I was younger, I did a lot of times of. I know it I guess it'd be like, sort of internal whole fan fiction, I never wrote it down. But my parents were divorced every other weekend we would drive an hour and a half between the houses. And I would spend the entire ride thinking about stories and they David stories and won't their extra character in this book. You know what would that person do? And now that self insert sort of dance it, but it never actually wrote it down in part. It was Julie to it was so dark out when we're doing the drive. I couldn't read. All right. I just can't imagine stories what point in your life. Did you kind of have that drive or have that wanting desire to start writing? Yeah. So I think they came to it late. I didn't start writing until I was in grad school. And I think part of that was channeled my creativity in a different way through college. I was actually a music composition, major I was writing, you know, string quartets and, you know, choral music, and that kind of stuff. So it's rep a lot of my creative energy for the four years. I was in college. And then when I went to old kind of gotten burned out through like the news thing I realized, I had gone from there is much more. I was like, no really good compared to other people who are trying to do that. And then went to college, and I was like, oh, no, not that good at this, and I never had the I didn't love it enough to fight for the kind of growth needed to make it as a. He's a greater. So when I went to grad school and for completely different thing and went forth. If there's so worked in student housing for a long time, my second year, I would miserable, and I needed an outlet, but I was still had no interest in going back to dick. And that's when I was like, oh, I should write a novel because that seems like something one would just do. So was there a book or maybe a couple of books that were kind of maybe get a little bit of credit for being part of that inspiration to kind of get you started to right? You know, I'm not sure if there is a book that I read and I went, oh I could write this. But I do know a few months before started writing is when I first started rereading me. That rerating but getting back into reading, so the summer before I started my source book, I read the entire hunger games trilogy. I read his in debtor's first books, something change deadly just starting to get back into why. An I think that helps because I was back into sort of a reading group at that point, I don't know if I had read, though, they might not have had the sought to write a book. And so then when you started what were those first attempts would John ra- category, kind of what kind of themes or elements where you can play around with. Yeah. Some very very but then I wrote, which was total garbage. I basically through in everything that I liked it tried to make all work in one book. So I had like every type of fantasy creature you could imagine. I had, you know, some of these like separate magic factions. And, you know the one girl who had, you know the power of both. Oh my goodness. What's going to happen? And so that was a train wreck. But it was it was fun. You know, I think that I did you know, Raimondo in twenty twelve is my first time I wrote something I did it with the whole story in a month is the first time ever trying that gave me a lot of confidence of, like, hey, I can do this thing. So then I had to actually learn how to revise it was hot. And then from there, I wrote the next year, I wrote a high fantasy novel, there's a little bit better. And then I wrote something that was sort of slow historical fiction, kind of witches have like a non linear time for like timely. And then Finally, I ended up writing the first draft Bush's. Don't burn would have been the late winter early full of twenty fifteen sounds. Right. And so as your writing was there a way that, you know, because this isn't necessarily, what you went to school for, what did you do to kind of I'll say hone your craft maybe at writing are, how did you kind of get plugged in to whether you want to see the industry are just getting into maybe best practices when it came to exploring? An expanding your craft. Yeah, that's a good question. The very first thing I did kinda hit went to Google and looking, and they ended up pretty sure it was a paid course totally lie on how to revise her novel, of course. And I was like, this is exactly what I need to do to revise, I, but this is great. So I went through that to all of the. The very detailed process of reading your novel and figuring out what you have and what it is you meant to write. And how do you bridge that gap? And that gave me kind of my first Dacian of, like characterization and the promises you make reader and world building that makes sense. So that was really helpful kind of laying the groundwork. And then I will enter talking to other writers, but I found. Dinnertime mentioned earlier. She has a wonderful amount of resources on her books. I and I was telling her kind of as she was first writing those blog posts. So I kind of used that to help hone in on what religion meant to me. I met some key partners. Some of who I'm I'm still in contact with today. The it though the sharing of our work really helpful in getting teeth back. I'm also joined a local writers grew to share chapters. So to try to find everywhere to get information as I could kind of goes back to being a very focused person, and I didn't have the money or time to go back to learn to do this sort of tried to create my own learning environment as much as possible. And so then after putting all that into it and having these other stabs at books you mentioned it already you have your first book, these, which is don't burn, which is out by razor Bill. So let's start talking about this book and give us the synopsis of what this book's about. Yeah. Chevys which is don't burn is about Hannah while she was out lesbian, but she's closeted as a witch in modern day Salem, and things kinda take a turn for the weird and sukey when blood witch in danger territory and starts going after heaven. And so..

Favorite movie based on a book? Well, oh, I I I really love the Princess bride. I it was someone. I I thought I think I was man. I was young. I was like maybe fourth grade or something, and I hadn't I felt the movie I so I didn't know it was based on a book and my grasp of humor. I didn't know that it was supposed to be funny. I found it was funny. But I was clearly taking itself very seriously. So no, this is supposed to be funny on just weird. But then as I got older I wash again, and you know, I watched it again. And again, and again, oh, this this is funny is and then I read the book and just the way that that humor translates, you know, between the two, and I feel like having having read the her seen a movie, I kind of changed things for me. And you're you're supposed to read the book, I, but so as far as reading the book first, and then, you know, a movie based on that, I really love pride and prejudice. The the cure nightly version, which I know there's people out there. They're going to fight me over that. I'm so sorry. But I love it. I've got you know, nostalgic memories attached to it. And I'm oh, I love pardon prejudice. But I really love care ninety version. Yeah. Those are both popular answers. So really, yes. Yeah. That makes me feel so much. So the next question is there a book or a series of books that you're willing to admit that you've either never read or never finished? Okay. So there's I yeah. I'm willing to admit is the key here.

The in series unfortunate events. Never never I feel like I tried once maybe I was too old at that point or something. But it didn't really get me in. Neither did the the movies. You know, feel like we'll just watch the movie, and if you don't like the books, and I try that man just doesn't do it for me. And then finally, what is the last great book that you've read? I love this one. The last great book that I read is an unkindness of ghost by river. Solomon. It's kind of a a dystopia science fiction. But it's you know, just token thing it's all these people that are living on a ship. It's like what they call a generation ship. So the society has been formed, and it's just masterful Riverstone minutes such a poet we're talking about poetry and how it affects world building. Oh, man. That's the book. That's the book. I wish I had read it before I wrote a conspiracy of stars. Because I feel like I learned so much from it just, you know, like ways of speech that different characters have in like the different, you know, the the levels of the ship and how they interact with each other. And then just reef I learned so much about Greeks from this book. So big fan of of that book. It's well, Livia anatomy, obese comes out on. April sixteenth follow up to conspiracy of stars.
