Go Ahead and Write Something, Episode 2: Naomi Novik

Bestseller Naomi Novik's down-to-earth wisdom will help you start (and finish) your stories.

Naomi is an acclaimed American author of speculative fiction. She is known for the Temeraire series (2006–2016), an alternate history of the Napoleonic Wars involving dragons, and her Scholomance fantasy series (2020–22). Her standalone fantasy novels "Uprooted" (2015) and "Spinning Silver" (2018) were inspired by Polish folklore and the Rumpelstiltskin fairy tale respectively. She has won many awards for her work, including the Alex, Audie, British Fantasy, Locus, Mythopoeic and Nebula Awards. Her latest award-winning trilogy, The Scholomance, is available now.

The first book in the trilogy is 'A Deadly Education' and here are some reviews:

“A must-read . . . Novik puts a refreshingly dark, adult spin on the magical boarding school. . . . Readers will delight in the push-and-pull of El and Orion’s relationship, the fantastically detailed world, the clever magic system, and the matter-of-fact diversity of the student body.”

—Publishers Weekly (starred review) “The magic and mystery of this chillingly lovely novel will appeal to both YA and adult fans of J. K. Rowling’s Harry Potter books. . . . An unresolved ending leaves readers eager for the next installment.”
