One area of mystery we haven’t discussed on Mysterious Goings On is urban fantasy, which is, according to author Caitlin Berve essentially detective fiction plus magic. Berve is the author of When Magic Calls: A Collection of Modern Fairy Tales, and in our discussion, where we also discuss the dark history of fairy tales, why those stories are still so prevalent in society, and how fairy tales stick around because their warnings and messages still hold true today.
Through her company Ignited Ink Writing, Berve edits books, writes online content for small businesses, fantasy novels, and blogs about creative writing. Listen in for her advice to writers looking for an editor, and much more.
