Read more

Hey there word nerds! Today, I have the pleasure of interviewing Fonda Lee on the show.

Fonda is a recovering corporate strategist, black belt martial artist, and an action movie aficionado as well as the author of several highly acclaimed books of fantasy and science fiction, such as the young adult sci-fi novels Zeroboxer, Exo, and Cross Fire

Her work has been nominated for several awards, including the Nebula and Locus Awards, and been featured on Best of Year lists such as NPR and Syfy Wire. She also won the Aurora Award, Canada’s national science fiction and fantasy award, twice in the same year for Best Novel and Best Young Adult Novel. 

Fonda’s latest writing project is the fantasy/crime drama series the Green Bone Saga. The first book in this series, Jade City (which I am loving!), won the 2018 World Fantasy Award for Best Novel, and the second book in the series, Jade War, has just been released.

So listen in as Fonda and I chat about this amazing series, and the numerous strategies and decisions that go into crafting the world of your story.  

In this episode Fonda and I discuss:

  • How to choose the right way to build your world.
  • The “iceberg effect” of worldbuilding.
  • How to put your reader into the middle of your story from page one the right way.
  • Using a fantasy element to make your story feel more real.
  • How to manage the powerful tool of multiple point of view.
Plus, Fonda’s #1 tip for writers.
