There's writing and then there's writing. I have two published novels and a good handful of published short stories and poems, but it's hard to express how it felt to see my byline on an essay at the highly respected literary website The Millions. I shared my thoughts on whether historical fiction can be feminist (it totally can) as well as some of my favorite recent historical novels that make the case for women as fully realized members of society and pretty awesome individuals to boot.
Read the whole essay here, and I'd love it if you'd share the link around. It's been wonderful to see the positive reactions so far. I'm thrilled to have this one out in the world.
