Cruelty and Courage: Emily Suvada in conversation with Scott Westerfeld

Cruelty and Courage: Emily Suvada in conversation with Scott Westerfeld

Scott Westerfeld (Uglies, Leviathan) talks to Emily Suvada, author of This Mortal Coil and This Cruel Design about her thoughts on science, writing, and the apocalypse.

Having studied mathematics and astrophysics, Emily Suvada’s interest in science and tech never waned, particularly in genetic engineering and the question of what it means to be human. She thought it would be fun to explore these interests through characters running for their lives in a futuristic hellscape, so she wrote This Mortal Coil. A novel about one girl’s quest for answers in a genetically and technologically advanced future, This Mortal Coil is followed up by This Cruel Design.

Join us as Emily discusses the themes and ideas behind her books with bestselling author Scott Westerfeld.
