Leah Vernon, the author of Impure, drops by to give us her thoughts on world building.
Impure takes place 500 years in the future, when Americans were ruled by a tyrant and divided by race and class; hate and inequality reigned. Hispanics and Blacks overthrew the government and exterminated most of the Caucasian “Europe” race – enslaving the few that remained. Sixteen-year-old Saige is an Impure – she has mixed blood – a crime for which her parents were executed. Vernon writes a compelling story of three teenage adversaries from different castes who are forced to rely on one another to thwart a dictator’s plans for mass genocide.
Leah’s amazing interview is going to be broken up into several topics and spread out over the coming weeks, but you can see ALL the segments on our Writers Off Task With Friends YouTube channel.
