Here are questions I asked:

  • On this show, we discuss “the punks”. Can you share your working definition of the term ecopunk? Is anything in-bounds or out-of-bounds for you when it comes to ecopunk and other punks?
  • Looking back, was there a specific memory or situation in your life that you feel led you to the path you’re on, writing about ecopunk and forest fantasy (so cool!)?
  • For readers who haven’t yet found your work, please give us an overview of each series and what themes readers can expect.
  • I’m excited to chat about your ecopunk series The Biodome Chronicles, which incorporates different time periods converging and nature meeting machine in compelling ways. How did you unique combinations evolve? What was your creative process in arriving at this interesting story?

Shall we make it official?!
