These are all radio or podcast interviews, but I hope someday to be interviewed the old-fashioned way, in print!
My first ever interview was with Lara Zielinsky on her “Readings in Lesbian and Bisexual Women’s Fiction” show. It was a trial by fire because of sound problems, but Lara was able to re-dub everything so now it sounds great! I read a part from The End where Julia is getting kicked out of her community service program for being stubborn and individualistic.
Then Julia Rios interviewed me for The Outer Alliance podcast. The Outer Alliance is an amazing group of SF/F writers whose goal is to support and celebrate LGBTQ contributions in speculative fiction. I got to read an excerpt from The End where Marly has been left to die in juvenile jail, but then she meets Bast, Goddess of Cats.
Be The Change is an awesome radio show (on WVKR 91.3 FM in New York) that focuses on how people are changing the world in positive ways. I was lucky enough to be a guest along with Zara Ansell, who at that time was the outreach coordinator at the Hudson Valley LGBTQ Center in Kingston. The topic was supporting LGBTQ youth.
