Ep. 301: Isabel Cañas on The Magic of a Reading Journal

Ep. 301

Isabel Cañas is a Mexican-American speculative fiction writer. After having lived in Mexico, Scotland, Egypt, and Turkey, among other places, she has settled (for now) in New York City, where she works on her PhD dissertation in medieval Islamic literature and writes fiction inspired by her research and her heritage. The Hacienda, her debut novel, is billed as Mexican Gothic meets Rebecca set in Mexico after its War of Independence, featuring a haunted house behaving very badly, a hot priest, and witches where you least expect them.
