    Today I’m chatting with New York Times bestselling author Catherine Bybee. We discuss her latest book, Chasing Shadows, and we also talk about her career as a writer, and the elements she combines in her stories, particularly her latest series. Among the topics we cover: - writing chosen families and found families of friends - advice she’d give her past self when she started out - how reframing some pejorative terms used to describe women can lead to a series plot - starting over after a divorce, the empowerment of making one’s own choices, and writing characters in the same position - how her prior career as a trauma nurse shaped her writing process, and her approach to her career We also discuss the dangerous power of procrastination, the possibilities of lawful good heroines, and cover a whole pile of recommendations. Among my favorite things that Catherine says: “I can’t afford not to read.”
