Last fall, I (Sarah) met up with Marjorie at the Melbourne Writers' Festival, and we had tea together one afternoon before we were part of a panel together. Australian tea, too, so there were about six levels of sandwiches and sweets and we were there for hours.
Now, I'm back in the states and Marjorie's in Tokyo. You know, like you do. (Seriously, Skype sometimes is amazing.) Not only does she have a new book out, the last book in her Hunter Kiss series, but an animated film she wrote is also being released as well.
Marjorie's writing career has included novels, video games, and comics and graphic novels. In this interview, we talk about telling stories in multiple formats, finding your voice after being away from one format for awhile, and her favorite characters in the Marvel universe. We also get the lowdown on Marjorie's real opinion on Pacific Rim and the latest Wolverine novel, and we talk about the role of minorities in storytelling.
This is a really fascinating discussion, and thank you to Marjorie for hopping on Skype with me to chat for awhile.
Here are the books and movies we discuss in this podcast:
Jace Warden is sent to the Shiftertown in Austin to find a way to free all Shifters from their Collars. But pulling off the Collars can cause Shifters to go mad or kill them outright.
In Austin, Jace meets Deni Rowe, a wolf Shifter with troubles of her own–she was deliberately run down in the road, and while her body has healed, she still has episodes of total memory loss during which she retreats into her pure animal self.
Jace has never met anyone like Deni. Courageous and beautiful, she volunteers to help him test the Collar removal. And as Deni and Jace work together, they feel the mate bond begin. But can Jace help Deni believe she can heal enough to be anyone's true mate?
