The Great Big Beautiful Podcast, Episode 187: Delilah Dawson
Welcome back! I can think of no better way to celebrate your Fourth of July than by spending an hour with the impossibly charming Delilah Dawson. Good thing I’ve got you covered. You’re welcome.
Dawson published her first novel – Wicked As They Come – in 2012. Over the next six years, she’s written more than a dozen books, plus just a ton of short stories and novellas across several genres. She wrote the phenomenally well received and fan favorite Phasma novel for the Star Wars universe. As Lila Bowen, she’s writing the “weird west” Shadow series, which began with Wake of Vultures. And her latest book, Kill the Farm Boy (coauthored with Kevin Hearne), begins yet another series.
Clearly, she has clones.
On this episode, we talk to Dawson about the ridiculous number of words she’s written over the last few years, the value of writing advice, Phasma, the weird west, pseudonyms, and the difference between YA and “adult” lit.
