Fantasy and middle grade author Kacen Callender stops by to talk about their Caribbean fantasy duology, “Islands of Blood and Storm”, how the stories came about, examining privilege and the harms that can be caused by it, looking at consequences from actions without real character growth being part of the end game, changing their writing approach for YA versus adult audiences, and more.
Book 1 is Queen of the Conquered, Book 2 is King of the Rising, and both books are available now.
