Swoony Boys Podcast

We start off with a debate on whether or not "y'all" should be used by everyone. Spoiler alert: It should.

Susan Dennard gives us her elevator pitch for the Witchlands series.

We find out where the idea for the series came from and what a typical writing day looks like for Susan.

Susan shares her writing process and what the publication process is like for her.

We chat about what it was like to go back to the beginning with Sightwitch and Susan shares some fun secrets.

Susan tells us her favorite part about writing in the YA Fantasy genre--and the most difficult parts.

We find out if there were any scenes cut in Sightwitch and who she would introduce her characters to if she could introduce them to any other author's characters.

Susan tells us two truths and a lie about herself, and we have to guess which is the lie. We're still losers. 😆

We find out what advice Susan would give to her 17-year-old self.

Susan shares her most-anticipated upcoming (at the time of recording) new releases, a few of her go-to re-reads, and her favorite swoony boys.

We wrap things up with a fun Word Association Game
