The challenge is figuring out a way into them. I want to tell the story in a way that hasn't been done before. For LIFESTYLES, the key was Ariadne. Her voice came to me from the beginning, and I knew with absolute certainty that she wasn't someone who would fall instantly in love with Theseus. Not that she wouldn't think he was cute, but that there was no way she was handing over her thread right away. For the new one, I'm still finding my way.

I have so many ideas. One of my back burner, someday/maybe goals is to do a retelling of the story of the origins of the Trojan War. I have many thoughts about the generals and Iphigenia and the rush to war, but I don't quite have my way into that one yet.(less)

I'm taking the same approach that I did in LIFESTYLES OF GODS AND MONSTERS of looking at it from the perspective of a character that isn't the central character in the original myth. It's in the same world as LIFESTYLES, but new characters and settings. It's very fun so far, but I'm still finding the heart of it.(less)

Quotes by Emily Roberson  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“Every working mother has the things she dreads, things that keep her up in the night – pink eye, an ear infection, the parent-teacher conference, the school play – all forcing her to remind the people she works with that she is not, in fact, wholly devoted to business enterprises, but has another secret life. For me, the night terror is the 5 a.m. phone call from the nanny.”
