Speculative fiction novelist Cynthia Kraack, author of the Ashwood trilogy was a recent guest on the Mr. Media podcast. Here are some excerpts and the video.
“Anne Hartford came to me when I was doing my MFA program. I started writing a story about a young woman standing with all of her earthly possessions in front of this big, forbidding residence. It took six months after that to understand who she was and what was going on.”
“A part of Leaving Ashwood is about large multinational corporations becoming more powerful than the national governments. The 10 largest corporations in the world are now like half the largest economies in the world if you were to compare GDP with revenues. It’s like, whoa! We’re already part-way there.”
