Rebecca Kim Wells is the author of Shatter the Sky, forthcoming from Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers in Summer 2019. When not writing, reading, or talking about writing or reading, she sells books at a fiercely independent bookstore in Massachusetts. She can also be found drinking tea, singing along to musicals, or playing soccer. (Usually not all at once.) If she were a hobbit, she would undoubtedly be a Took.

I talked about one of the specific inspirations in a different question, so I'll talk guiding principles here: I wanted to write an unapologetic bisexual heroine in a world where being queer is unremarkable.

My aim is to dust off some internet spaces this year, but I’m not going to commit to anything that hints at being a schedule—considering that I wrote literally two blog posts in 2018, that’s probably a good thing. Last year was a big year—I sold a book! I rewrote that book A LOT! I sold a second book! (Actually, that’s pretty...
