SDCC12: Exclusive Interview with Amelia Atwater-Rhodes, Author of the ‘Den of Shadows’ Series


Amelia Atwater-Rhodes sat down with Lytherus at this year’s San Diego Comic Con for a one-on-one interview. She has written a ton of books (I think the official count at this date is thirteen published, with one more already known about, to be published next year) which is pretty amazing for someone in their late twenties — but I guess that’s what happens when you start publishing at fifteen!

Amelia and I sat down to chat about her newest book, a stand-alone book called Poison Tree, written in such a way as to bring new readers into her series. It was complex and excellent. Here’s the summary from Amazon:

The rich stew of the author’s creations—SingleEarth, vampires, shapeshifters, Tristes, the Bruja Guilds—are at full boil here in the story of two 20-ish young women trying to out run their very different pasts, and figure out where they fit in and who they might become. Each has landed in a more “normal” place, and each wonders if, like a tattoo that can’t be covered up, they can ever really fit into “normal.”

In our almost thirty-minute interview we talk about the world she’s created, how her books are connected, writing, and much more.
