Autumn Daughetee of Kymera Press did a two-part interview with me for their newsletter, which is now also available on their website. I talk about my influences–both early and late–and how completely stoked I am to be living my dream of writing and editing comics.
You can read Part 1 of the interview here.
And wow, was this thing ever dusty.
A bit has happened since my last post: that’s a British Fantasy Award (Best Anthology: Women Destroy Science Fiction!) and a Hugo Award (Semiprozine: Lightspeed) in that picture, respectively. The BFA actually only arrived a few weeks ago, having been mislaid somewhere on the other side of the Atlantic for a while. It is a very strange feeling, even months later (in the case of the Hugo), to look up and see those there with my name on them. I’m so grateful to all of the people who supported WDSF!, and those who chose to honor it this way.
In other news, I’ve started working for all-women independent comics press Kymera Press as both a writer and editor–I’m editing two titles and writing one. Without hyperbole, this is a dream come true: my original career goal when I started writing was to write comics. I took a detour into short fiction to hone my storytelling skills, and somehow never made it back until now. Comics by nature have a lot of moving parts, and my roles fall right at the start of the pipeline, so it’ll be a little while before the issues I’ve worked on make their way to the masses. I’ll post updates here when I have them!
