Claribel and Kat discuss why problematic books keep getting published and why the publishing industry has to hold itself accountable beforehand so this stops happening. Then they interview Mara Fitzgerald about her debut YA fantasy, BEYOND THE RUBY VEIL, and how being true to her voice helped her write the book that got her an agent and a book deal.
Mara Fitzgerald writes YA fantasy about unlikable female characters who ruin everything. She is a biologist by day and spends entirely too much time looking at insects under a microscope. She was born in the same state as Disney World and now lives in the same state as Dollywood, which is just as good. BEYOND THE RUBY VEIL is her first novel.
