WaFS2-header

Aliette de Bodard writes award winning speculative fiction while raising two children and working full time as a systems engineer. She joined us from her home in Paris, France. We had a wide ranging conversation about life, writing, and gender norms. We picked up a slight echo in our recording of this interview which you may notice in places.

Aliette de Bodard is the author of the BSFA award winning novel, The House of Shattered Wings and it's sequel, The House of Binding Thorns. She has also written the Obsidian and Blood series -- Servant of the Underworld, Harbinger of the Storm, and Master of House of Darts.

Season 2 -- Episode 1 -- Melissa Westemeier - a new kind of author unhindered by publisher or genre or a busy life

Women and Fiction returns!

Women and Fiction returns with Season 2 of our podcast.

We begin the season with Melissa Westemeire. Melissa's first book, Whipped, Not Beaten, is what she calls "chick lit" and was published by Cornerstone Press.  By the time the book came out, Melissa had finished her second book. After lunch with a friend, she decided to publish her second book, Kick like a Girl, also "chick lit", herself. Her third book, Across the River, is a more serious look at change in a small town. It is published by Bridle Path Press.  

Melissa represents a new kind of author. One who is unhindered by her publisher or strict rules about staying in her genre. 

Melissa is a mother, a wife, a full-time high school teacher, who fits writing in to her life.

Melissa Westemeier joins Women and Fiction for the first Episode of Season 2.
