Felicity Librie was born and raised in England, and has lived in four countries and eleven cities. She received an MA from the University of Edinburgh, Scotland, and worked in publishing in New York and London. She’s been writing fiction for seven years, in between moves. She’s currently working towards an MA in English, focusing on Creative Writing, at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. She contributes occasional essays to her local NPR station, had an interview published in The Writer magazine, and recently had a flash fiction piece accepted for printing on the sleeves that go on the cups at UWM’s coffee shops. Three books that she’d love to get people reading are Angel, by Elizabeth Taylor (no, not that Elizabeth Taylor), Master and Commander by Patrick O’Brian, and I Capture the Castle by Dodie Smith.
In her conversation with novelist Tracy Chevalier, Felicity Librie uncovers how research fuels the process of character development, how the past sheds light on our present moment, and why Chevalier will never tire of getting lost on a journey of discovery.
