Marissa chats with Chloe Gong about her debut historical fantasy - THESE VIOLENT DELIGHTS - as well as why readers continue to be enamored with Romeo & Juliet (despite the unfair scorn it receives in pop culture!); some of the decision making that goes into retelling a well-known and beloved story; building tension through world-building and using moments of omniscient point-of-view to help bring your setting to life; and how time-management has helped Chloe write her debut duology while also working toward her college degree.
