S4 E15 An Interview with Somaiya Daud

Mental Health in YA Publishing and Writing Booked All Night

Tonight, we’re joined by amazingly nerdy author Somaiya Daud, author of Mirage and Court of Lions. We talk about Tolkein, The Mass Effect Trilogy, Worldbuilding, and so much more.

Two identical girls, one a princess, the other a rebel. Who will rule the empire? After being swept up into the brutal Vathek court, Amani, the ordinary girl forced to serve as the half-Vathek princess’s body double, has been forced into complete isolation. The cruel but complex princess, Maram, with whom Amani had cultivated a tenuous friendship, discovered Amani’s connection to the rebellion and has forced her into silence, and if Amani crosses Maram once more, her identity – and her betrayal – will be revealed to everyone in the court. Amani is desperate to continue helping the rebellion, to fight for her people’s freedom. But she must make a devastating decision: will she step aside, and watch her people suffer, or continue to aid them, and put herself and her family in mortal danger? And whatever she chooses, can she bear to remain separated, forever, from Maram’s fiancĂ©, Idris?
