TRATWD 141 – Ada Palmer

Posted by on 24 Feb 2018 | Tagged as: Interview

In this week’s episode I interviewed Dr. Ada Palmer–historian, musician, and author of the award-winning TERRA IGNOTA series of science fiction novels. We had a lovely conversation about world-building, characterization, the business of publishing, the challenges of incorporating freedom of religion in a secular society, and how concepts of wealth and scarcity might change in a world where all one’s material needs are provided for. This was a fantastic interview, and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

In this week’s episode I interview Christiana Ellis, the mastermind behind a bunch of cool projects, including Space Casey, Nina Kimberly the Merciless, and the serial detective/adventure story Phyllis Esposito: Interdimensional Private Eye. Christiana had a lot of great insights to share about putting yourself into your work, knowing what you want to get out of your writing, and why you shouldn’t worry about whether your stuff is “original” or not. I had a lot of fun with this conversation, and I hope you will too!
