In Conversation with Julia Fierro

I know there are writers who think the discussion of so-called “unlikable” characters, particularly women characters, has been played-out, I think it is terribly relevant. The issue of likability was in my awareness from the very start of Cutting Teeth.

Author Museum Interviews: The Frost Place in Franconia, New Hampshire
