Today Summer of Indie talked with writer C. M. Barrett. Barrett talked with us about two of her books, one of which is a very interesting take on the fantasy genre and the other a more realistic fictional novel.
When asked to briefly describe herself, C. M. Barrett said, " I love dragons and cats and putting fictional humans in crises where they have to redefine who they are in order to triumph."
The plots of the two pieces author C. M. Barrett chose to share with us today are very closely related to the interests C. M. Barrett expressed.
Her first book that she wished to share with us is titled Big Dragons Don't Cry, and she included this synopsis:
A cunning opportunist incites the people of Oasis to kill the local dragon because he wants Druid's swamp for suburban housing. The dragonslayer also intends to take over the government. Unless the dragon joins a kitten with attitude and a human with unlawful psychic gifts, Oasis is finished.
When asked about the book, we were given the following synopsis:
In 1968 a band of young people form a commune. Though none of them avoid the entanglement of romantic complications, they are determined to learn new ways of loving. A disturbed and seductive teenager who becomes the snake in their fragile Eden disrupts their attempts to create a family.
