43-Talking Creativity With Mary Robinette Kowal

Episode Summary

Hello and Welcome! I hope you have been kind to yourself this past crazy week. Today I am so excited to welcome another conversation that will help us breathe a little easier and get in touch with one of the most joyous sides of ourselves, our creativity! There is no one I am more excited to have as a guest than Mary Robinette Kowal. Let me share with you a little of the magic she brings to the world. Mary Robinette Kowal is the author of the Lady Astronaut duology and historical fantasy novels: The Glamourist Histories series and Ghost Talkers. She’s a member of the award-winning podcast Writing Excuses and has received the Astounding Award for Best New Writer, four Hugo awards, the RT Reviews award for Best Fantasy Novel, the Nebula, and Locus awards. Stories have appeared in Strange Horizons, Asimov’s, several Year’s Best anthologies, and her collections Word Puppets and Scenting the Dark and Other Stories. Her novel Calculating Stars is one of only eighteen novels to win the Hugo, Nebula, and Locus awards in a single year. As a professional puppeteer and voice actor (SAG/AFTRA), Mary Robinette has performed for LazyTown (CBS), the Center for Puppetry Arts, Jim Henson Pictures, and founded Other Hand Productions. Her designs have garnered two UNIMA-USA Citations of Excellence, the highest award an American puppeteer can achieve. She records fiction for authors such as Seanan McGuire, Cory Doctorow, and John Scalzi. Seriously! And there is so much more to this creative woman that is not in that bio! Welcome, Mary Robinette! Mary Robinette, you are one of the most creative people I know. You exude creativity. Not just what's on your bio, puppeteer, writer, but the clothes you create, every social media post that describes your feline family, your passion for creating or finding the most delicious libations, your pie making! All of that is born out of your beautiful creative mind. Have you always been in touch with that side of you?
