My interview with Jackie Morse Kessler is up at last! Give it a listen and learn about her fascinating new YA series and hear her read from the compelling novel Hunger. You may also know Jackie as the author of racier books like the Hell's Belles series or the superhero series co-created with Caitlin Kittredge, the Icarus Project. Oh, and she works for some guy named Joss Whedon, too.
Jackie is very funny and sharp, and her characters reflect that. She's got a real knack for natural dialogue -- well, "natural" in the sense of this is how we all like to think of ourselves talking. The section she reads from Hunger is effective and affecting. Jackie can move from humorous to touching without skipping a beat. I think you'll enjoy meeting her!
