Sherin attended the Capclave science fiction and fantasy convention this weekend and sat down with guest of honor Alyssa Wong!
Alyssa is a sci-fi and fantasy writer who has been terrifying and amazing us with her short stories and her work on our fave video games. She’s won the Nebula Award, the World Fantasy Award, and the Locus Award, to name a few, and her latest venture is taking her into the world of Overwatch. With so many stories to tell, who better to chat to for our latest Whachudoin’?
Alyssa is currently working on a novel about teenagers, romance and social media, and godkilling (naturally). Listen in as she shares how she realized she was ready to write a novel and how she unlocks stories from within (hint: it involves a lot of bubblegum pop). She also talks about how her incredibly powerful short story The Fisher Queen came to life, the importance of writing for yourself and, of course, zombie Jesus. It’s a thing.
