Author Interviews

I'm very proud to have been both interviewee and interviewer for the BSFA. Full videos here!

Check our my most recent interview for the BSFA, in which we discuss the (frankly terrible) roles that male characters are given in fairy tales and fantasy and how I aim to subvert these in my book, The Princess And The Orrery.

And She-Ra. Lots of She-Ra!

TEDx 2017, Into The Wild

I was given the opportunity to give a mini-presentation at TEDx Aarhus - with just two hours to prepare, and delivered to 800 people. The theme of the conference was 'Into The Wild'... this is what I said!


I grew up in a comic book shop, and there's only two ways one can go with that kind of beginning. I went the geeky way. I love comics, sci-fi and fantasy, as well as board games and RPG. 

I currently live in London, U.K., with my husband and cats. I have a PhD in English Literature and work as a Lecturer at a London university.

I'm always very happy to chat! You can email me on faith@fdlee.co.uk, or find my on Twitter, @faithdlee, or Facebook, @fdleeauthor.

You can learn more about me here, if you so wish!
