Welcome to episode 38, where I chat with bestselling author Patricia Briggs!

In this interview I chat with Patty about her newest Mercy Thompson book, SMOKE BITTEN (out 3/17/20), but we also spend a lot of time chatting about urban fantasy in general, what it’s like writing such a long-running fantasy series, why she puts her characters through the wringer, and more. We also chat a lot about other urban fantasy authors and series we both love, so if that’s a genre you’re into, you’re in luck! This is also a great episode for someone who hasn’t read these books, as there’s lots of good details about writing and plotting without too many detailed specifics to confuse new readers. All this and more in this episode!

Some of the authors she mentions:
Laurell K Hamilton
Tanya Huff
Illona Andrews
Jim Butcher
Charlaine Harris
Kim Harrison
JD Robb
Lois McMaster Bujold
