I could never be accused of being a wallflower, and when people ask what I think about something, I'll tell them. Some call it oversharing; I call it being heard. Recently, Charlotte Bond, author, editor, and one of the hosts at the Breaking the Glass Slipper podcast (remember in March when I shared my opinions about tampons and women's bodies in apocalyptic fiction? Of course you do!) asked me to answer some questions she's been posing to authors about one of our favorite characters: the princess. What's good, what's 'tropey', what accessory needs to be Q'd. You can find my answers here. Oh, and I do have things to say about Elizabeth I.
Mostly thoughts on writing and the creative life.
