I have the pleasure of having Mark Oshiroof the Mark Does Stuff Community on the show this week. We talk about his YA debut ANGER IS A GIFT, dreams coming true, and Mark's current work in progress. We talk about our anxiety disorders and how important it is to have characters to relate to and to learn from.
More about Mark:
Mark Oshiro is the Hugo finalist (in the Fan Writer category) creator of the online Mark Does Stuff universe (Mark Reads and Mark Watches), where he analyzes book and television series unspoiled. He was the nonfiction editor of Queers Destroy Science Fiction! and the co-editor of Speculative Fiction 2015 with Foz Meadows. He is the President of the Con or BustBoard of Directors. His first novel, Anger is a Gift, is a YA contemporary about queer friendship, love, and fighting police brutality. It will be released on 5/22/2018 with Tor Teen. When he is not writing, crying on camera about fictional characters, or ruining lives at conventions, he is busy trying to fulfill his lifelong goal: to pet every dog in the world.
