Page Break with Brian McClellan
Ep 54 - Amie Kaufman - Science Fiction and Fantasy Author
My guest this week is international bestseller Amie Kaufman! An author of science fiction and fantasy for young adults, Amie is known for her Starbound Trilogy and Unearthed series, which she co-wrote with Meagan Spooner; the Illuminae Files and Aurora Cycle, which she co-wrote with Jay Kristoff, and her Elementals trilogy.
Amie and I chat about international travel, the joys of a quiet hotel room, and touring as a YA author. She tells me about her mutually-constructive relationship with her co-authors and the questions you ask yourself—and each other—when working with a creative partner. We also talk a bit about writing from a place of grief and let me tell you, listening back to this hit a little bit harder since my brother passed away last month. Enjoy my conversation with Amie Kaufman!
