Bay Area novelist Tara Sim caught the attention of young adult readers back in 2016 for her historical fantasy set in Victorian London, The Timekeeper—the first of a trilogy of groundbreaking LGBTQ fiction. Now she’s back with a new novel titled Scavenge the Stars, which borrows the general outline of The Count of Monte Cristo and pulls a gender switcheroo. The new book is the first of two parts, and the author sits down with fellow YA novelist Kat Cho (Wicked Fox) for a conversation about writing, world-building and gender in fiction.
