Welcome back to the Rocket Talk podcast!

This week’s episode features fantasy and science fiction authors Kate Elliott and Emma Newman. Having read both of their most recent novels, Justin asks them about what it’s like to write aged characters and what kinds of resistance exists in society to hearing those stories. They also discuss the rarity of anxiety disorders in fiction.

Kate Elliott is the author of twenty five novels including the recently released Court of Fives, Black Wolves, and The Very Best of Kate Elliott. Visit her website or find her on Twitter. She lives in Hawaii.

Emma Newman is the author of four novels, including the Split Worlds series from Angry Robot Books. Her newest novel, Planetfall, came out November 3 from Ace Roc. She is also a professional audio book narrator and co-writes and hosts the Hugo-nominated podcast Tea & Jeopardy, which involves tea, cake, mild peril and singing chickens.
