In this episode, we talk with Australian author Liz Butcher about Fates’ Fury, her debut novel. As the interview begins, we briefly touched on the wildfire catastrophe that has enveloped her country. Her first hand account of the devastation there is chilling. Then we talked about how her ideas became this novel. The discussion centered on her background and interests, how her characters write the story for her, why the three main characters are so well and deeply developed, how her writing style influences her work and how wonderful a sunrise can be.
This is a book that defies a pigeonhole so we explored what, in fact, its roots are and the amount of research was necessary to keep the ring of authenticity throughout. There is a unique precision to the book as a whole and the way Liz writes, It makes the reader want more and we were assured it is on the way
Enjoy the chaos.
