In today’s episode of Signal Boost, Paul talks to Sean Grigsby about his debut novel, Smoke Eaters, which imagines a future world in which firefighters also fight dragons! They discuss how Sean’s fire service career helped inform the novel and why he chose an older protagonist. He also gives us a glimpse into his next book, Daughters of Forgotten Light.
Then Elizabeth is joined by the Aurealis and Ditmar Award-winning author Thoraiya Dyer to talk about her Titans’ Forest Trilogy, especially the second book, Echoes of Understorey. They also discuss why she chose a jungle setting, the reason for changing the main POV in each book, the Greek mythological influences, and what her favorite Eucalyptus tree is!
We hope you enjoy the episode!
