  • Infusion YA Book Festival!
    This past weekend, I participated in the Infusion YA Book Festival! Usually it takes place in Vancouver, but this year is was online, but boy did it ever run JUST as smoothly! Thank you to all those working behind the scenes to make these panels truly great! My panel was the last one: “Is This the Real Life…Or Is This Just Fantasy” and with such a diverse array of authors involved, I’m proud to say that our discussion of the fantasy genre went beyond discussing just the conventions of fantasy to the very political meaning of fantasy itself! Take a look at the video below:
