I Talk Sh*t and Read: Interview with Kathleen O’Neal Gear
Sometimes, there's a book that catches your attention because it takes a popular trope (reincarnation) and builds a story around that feels like a fresh approach especially when it's main characters are under 21. Cries from the Lost Island certain fit the bill.
I had the opportunity to sit down and ask Kathleen O'Neal Gear some questions about her latest stand alone novel (and solo project) Cries from the Lost Island.
Bio: Kathleen O'Neal Gear is an archaeologist and historian. She lives in and raises bison (yes, you read that correctly) in the Owl Creek Mountains in northern Wyoming. She began writing full-time in 1986 and has been prolific (non-fiction and fiction) pretty much ever since. She's authored 10 novels under her name and 37 international bestsellers with her husband W. Michael Gear.
What started out as a pretty straightforward curiosity about what made her want to write about Cleopatra turned into an interesting discussion about her inspiration, process, and random facts I discovered while prepping for the interview.
