Real-life superhero Lauren Spieller of TriadaUS.
2. Favorite Books?
The Lumatere Chronicles by Melina Marchetta; Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake; The Abhorsen Trilogy by Garth Nix; Plain Kate by Erin Bow; All These Things I’ve Done by Gabrielle Zevin; An Enchantment of Ravens by Margaret Rogerson; The Bear and the Nightingale by Katherine Arden; A Ring of Endless Light by Madeleine L’Engle; The Collected Letters of CS Lewis (no, really!)
3. Writing Music?
YES, always! If The Light Between Worlds had a theme song, it would be Old Days by Ingrid Michaelson. I use a lot of her music while working. If Philippa had a theme song, it would be Ingrid’s song Drink You Gone. If Evelyn had a song, it would be The Light by Regina Spektor. My playlist for TLBW also includes songs by Birdy, Ella Fitzgerald, Sara Bareilles, and tracks from The Village score by James Newton Howard.
If my current work in progress had a theme song, it would be Issues by Julia Michaels. Again, its playlist includes a lot of Ingrid Michaelson, as well as Regina Spektor, Marianas Trench, Bon Iver, LIGHTS, and a little bit of Halsey.
4. Favorite Movies/TV?
Ever After. Any Jane Austen adaptation ever. Wives and Daughters. North and South. The first season of Poldark. Downton Abbey. Star Trek: Voyager. Farscape. Firefly. The Great British Bake Off. Escape to the Country. The Painted Veil. Water. The Lord of the Rings Extended Editions.
Gardening, whenever possible. Raising chickens. Baking, though my food is almost always ugly. Playing piano, badly. Begging my husband for sheep. Moisturizing. Concocting and consuming delicious soups.
