In this (very belated) episode, I'm joined by the brilliant New York Times bestselling author of steamy, diverse romance, Talia Hibbert. Her latest book is "Act Your Age, Eve Brown", an autistic romance, and her first book "Get a Life, Chloe Brown" features a protagonist living with Fibromyalgia. Talia says she "lives in a bedroom full of books. Supposedly, there is a world beyond that room, but she has yet to drum up enough interest to investigate," and ooh is that relatable! We take a deep dive into how she became an author, the role her chronic illnesses play in how she works, what it's like writing characters inspired by your personal experiences, "incidental" diversity (inspired by Olivia Dade talking about incidental fat rep), and much more. Even if writing isn’t something you’re interested in as a career or hobby, we discuss many aspects of living and working with chronic illness that I'm sure will hit home for many! I really enjoyed this conversation, and I hope you do too! This episode couldn't have happened without the editing skills of Amit Rai, the transcription by Evangeline Talbot, and the art by Shona Sawhney.
