Kay Villoso stops by to talk about her new epic fantasy The Wolf of Oren-Yaro, it’s foundation in Filipino mythology and needing to portray a strong female protagonist in this world.
She talks about making the anti-hero hero a strong woman who’s also a bad-ass fighter and fiercely protective of her people and their lands, how Talyien’s strength is sourced in the strong Filipino women she grew up with, about her writing process and more.
Kay even wrote her own scathing review of the book!
