365: Fantasy Inspired by Greek Mythology – Interview with Emily R. King
Today, I have the pleasure of interviewing Emily R. King.
Emily is the author of the Hundredth Queen series, along with Before the Broken Star, Into the Hourglass, and Everafter Song in the Evermore Chronicles.
Her latest novel is Wings of Fury, which was released earlier this year, and we’ll be discussing it today. It is the first in the Wings of Fury duology; the second book, Crown of Cinders, will be out in October of this year.
Born in Canada and raised in the United States, Emily is a shark advocate, a consumer of gummy bears, and an islander at heart, but her greatest interests are her children and three cantankerous cats.
In this episode Emily and I discuss:
- How she chose which versions of mythology she was going to use in her novels.
- What she learned about the role and lives of women in Ancient Greece.
- Why she wrote a duology as opposed to a trilogy or a longer series.
Plus, her #1 tip for writers.
