This Creative Life with Sara Zarr

Nov 1, 2015

Justine Larbalestier is the author of half a dozen books for young adults in addition to her broader body of work writing and editing. Her most recent novel is RAZORHURST. In this episode we talk about how she got from academia to YA publishing, the pros and cons of the globalization of literature, repetitive stress injury and ergonomics, diversity in publishing (see: the lack thereof), and how her husband's optimism helped her make the leap to full-time writing. 

I give a big swearing warning in the intro and then Justine hardly swears at all! Disappointing.
