Guest Post by Sarah Kuhn and Paul Krueger
Paul Krueger and I met because we're part of a very exclusive club: Hapa Authors With Debut Urban Fantasy Novels Starring Asian American Protagonists Out Summer '16.
Paul wrote Last Call at the Nightshade Lounge, which chronicles the adventures of recent college grad Bailey Chen as she's inducted into a secret society of bartenders who fight demons using alcohol magic. And I wrote Heroine Complex, which is all about Evie Tanaka, the put-upon personal assistant to glamorous superheroine Aveda Jupiter (aka Annie Chang), and her epic battles against demonic cupcakes, supernatural karaoke stars, and her own feelings.
As we wrap up our debut summers — and prepare to appear in a show featuring geeky Asian American writers at LA's second annual Comedy Comedy Festival — Paul and I thought it would be fun to sit down and talk writing, representation, and how our Asian American identities play into our work.
