Now, let’s get this show on the road!
I am extremely pleased to introduce to you all Fantasy/Sci-Fi Author and playwright Charley Daveler to the ongoing Author Interview series, as she tells us all about her exciting forays into her wonderfully witty entrancing worlds and we explore her writing experiences.
Enjoy folks, here we go.
Hi there Charley, thank you for spending time with us here today to allow us to get to know you better and find out more about the wonderful stories that you lovingly create.
Thanks! I’m excited to be here. Nothing better than spending some time talking about yourself.
Let’s start with your dark fantasy episodic fiction series, which you have published on your website called “Stories of the Wyrd.” Please tell us more about the fantastic paranormal themes behind your stories, the background behind your lead characters and what conflicts they will face across the course of their adventures.
The Wyrd is a other worldly plane that moves unrestrained across Kaia and Rasmus Kondori’s realm, leaving bits and pieces of itself after it passes. They come across creatures that feed on humans, monsters that steal children away in the night, or just strange objects that human peasants have no experience controlling.
It was initially inspired by folklore and fairy tales back when it was first written as an unpublished full-length novel, and the Wyrd, named for the Celtic word “Fate,” was based loosely on the fae, Avalon, and the movie Spirited Away. It was the idea that magical creatures live in another realm that can be reached from ours, except that instead of it having portals, fairy rings, or gateways there are actual constantly moving borders that things can easily wander out of. Or into. Kaia and Rasmus’s world is lower density magic than the Wyrd, their plane a meld of America and Russia in the 1800’s, right around the industrial age and the move out west. There are some aspects also drawn from ancient Japan and medieval Europe. The magic of the world leans towards paranormal more than whimsical in most of the stories so far, being a bit more character-oriented than fantastical, but there is supposed to be some humor, silliness, and inspiration, with things like talking foxes and playful banter with bridge trolls along with the strange people you can sell your dreams to and will claw out your eyes in your sleep. They are intended to be horrific, romantic, and playful, depending on the story.
Rasmus and Kaia grew up with a father who sold “snake oil,” or any sort of trinkets intended to keep people safe from the Wyrd. He wasn’t lying all of the time, but enough of it. As they grew up, Rasmus became more invested in actually helping people while Kaia wanted the truth of things. They both still sell some snake oil to the peasants in the wilderness, but Rasmus aims to protect others from the Wyrd while Kaia aims to learn more about it.
You have also had plays premiere in Los Angeles – are these plays similar in nature to “Stories of the Wyrd” or are they different beasts entirely?
The sense of humor in the dialogue, the sarcasm, the level-headed thinker futilely rationalizing with the emotional egomaniac, has some similarities, the voice being recognizably me, but everything else is different. It’s mostly satire, and typically contemporary. One play, The Vanishing Theatre, is the closest I’ve come to my books. It’s a joke on how a lot of theatres with budget problems will start cutting down on set pieces and costumes. The characters, inside a dystopian world where people are vanishing into the Gulags, realize they can control reality by miming props and end up with a cache of illegal weaponry. Another, The Salesman Knocks, which premiered 30 minutes outside of L.A., is a supernatural drama about a Vietnam vet fleeing from a demon who he released in the war, which is speculative, but a lot more dark without any semblance of humor that my prose usually has.
But most plays are more like Molly Aire and Becca Ette Do Theatre, a modern comedy where characters remark on diverse, sarcastic opinions on current issues that are relevant in my own life.
So they tend to be less realistic and often don’t have any well-crafted magical components.
What would you choose as your own personal mascot or spirit animal when it comes to you and your style of writing?
Definitely a Pitbull.
I’m currently a dog walker in New York City, and I’ve learned a lot about the breed in the recent months. They tend to scare people on the surface; those who don’t know them are afraid of what they might do next, but they have a whole lot of love to express. Strong, but sweet, they are opinionated, filled with personality. They don’t always go where you want them, or do what is expected, but it’s not to spite you, and sometimes you end up in places you’d never think of on your own.
So yeah, that’s what I’d want leading me.
If your stories were to be made into a film (or even a TV series), who would you cast in the lead roles?
In reality, no-name actors would be my first choice. I think that having recognizable faces would take away from their performance and the sense of that character. Plus, I’m not familiar with too many actors, so it’s hard for me to truly select who would be right.
I see Rasmus as a scrawnier Chris Hemsworth, and I love Emma Stone, plus her sense of humor in Easy A would be similar to Kaia’s. Kaia can lean on being unlikably callous or needlessly petulant, so she’d need to be played by someone who has a little bit of subtle charm and good nature. Rasmus would need someone who’s laid back to make his holier-than-thou attitude tolerable. But honestly, both those actors have a bit too much confidence. Kaia and Rasmus want to sink into a crowd, only popping out on their own volition. Neither takes up much space, and they tend to flow with the world in a way that most stars get famous for not doing.
I also love David Tennant, and might cast him as Maverik, a wizard who hires the siblings on several occasions before becoming entangled with Kaia. Or he could play whoever he wanted.
What do you think most characterizes or defines your writing? Do you have any writing quirks or themes that constantly crop up in your stories?
When I first started getting feedback some years ago, I kept getting told, “I love the way you write, but sometimes it’s jarring.” The worst of it was their compliments were sincere, their favorite part was the unexpected use of words. Yet, despite the big picture issues being consistent, the actual examples were completely erratic compared to each other, or even outright contradicting.
Most notably was the line, “She furrowed her mouth,” which literally half of people who read it despised and the other half loved. No in-between. Everyone mentioned it, either with unexpected enthusiasm or disdain.
Some of the criticism on my wording was definitely for the wrong reasons. A sixty-year-old man felt competitive with the tiny 19 year old girl confusing him. “I understood it! I just don’t think other people will!” I know for a fact, at times, they were criticizing me not the choice, such as when an actor who loved Twilight accused me of making up the word “chagrin” when his favorite novel had been criticized for overusing it. Or when I wrote, “He clamped his mouth shut,” and someone said, “WITH WHAT?!” accusing me of being too ‘purple.’ Several someones, in fact. That wasn’t something I made up. It’s a cliché, if anything.
But of course, it was right too, and I knew that even at the time. I saw (see) it get over the top myself, but it was increasingly hard to tell when considering that everyone who put a red pen to my book insisted on changing words that not a single other person cared remotely about. Twenty readers on the same first three chapters, and the most agreement I got was three people. By far, most “absolutely must be changed!” words were limited to one person.
I’ve toned way back on my style in recent years, but I’ve been encouraging it again due to the lacklustre descriptions that have been coming out of me at late. My main interest is to avoid pre-conceived connotations, mess with clichés, and suddenly go against expectation at the last minute. Immersion is important; it’s just a question of when.
What do you find the most difficult thing about writing? And what do you find the easiest?
Difficult? Learning what the difference between my ego and gut is. I’m a very prideful person, but also pretty intuitive, so there has definitely been occasions in which someone has said something to me that I didn’t like, and I could not tell, even over months of thinking, if I didn’t want to take it because they ticked me off, or because I knew there was something wrong about the advice itself. And honestly, it can really be either. Or both. Plus, once someone says I can or cannot do something, even if I have a very logical and thought out reason for my ultimate choice, I can’t stop “hearing” the criticism. I flinch every time I use an adverb.
Dialogue tends to come naturally for me, I believe because I tend to think in argument and conversation. It helps me to process if I mentally take both sides of an opinion, so I typically hear my thoughts as if two people are debating.
Who are some of the authors, poets and historical figures that inspire you?
I constantly push how much Calvin and Hobbes has affected me in both my writing and my life. I want the bond that the characters have, and adore Calvin’s unapologetic impulsivity.
Diana Wynne Jones has the magical whimsy and inspiration I was talking about earlier, Neil Gaiman has the ambiance, and Stephen King has the grounded tension. I’m not a diehard fan of Samuel Beckett, but I do enjoy his wordplay, and Oscar Wilde/Antoine Chekov’s statement on the people around them was incredibly impressive that I would like to achieve myself in a fantasy novel.
What sort of research do you do to write your stories?
Over the last few years I’ve decided to enrich and deepen the setting in my stories. Previously I just considered them background decoration for the emotional arcs, but today I want to “see” things that inspire me, so I’ve started to research other cultures, travel more, and seek inspiration as well as understanding of real world history and anthropology to create a better foundation for my secondary worlds.
Why do you write? What inspired you to become a writer?
I was inspired to become a writer because my best friend wanted to be an illustrator in third grade. She changed her mind. I didn’t. Also, I like playing pretend, and my imaginary friends don’t put up with my nonsense as much as those in reality, and it’s comforting in a way.
What keeps you motivated during creative slumps? How do you deal with Writers Block?
I think that writer’s block comes in three forms: past, present, or future. Maybe it’s I don’t like what I’ve written and so I’m not excited about continuing. Maybe I’m feeling grungy, stifled, and unhappy. Or maybe I have no idea where this book is going, and if I do, I’m not sure how I’m going to get there.
When it’s just that I’m not too enchanted with the manuscript, I try to tell myself that the second half will be much better and I can always go back and fix the first. I try to use potential to inspire me, and force myself onward. Sometimes I have a “add the cat” moment, which is when I intentionally add in something that I’m interested in to help me. Literally a cat, in one case.
If I feel terrible, usually due to external factors, I take some time to fix the issue. Sometimes literally just taking a bath or an Advil. Other times, it’s a much longer process, involving something like breaking up and moving halfway across the planet.
Most commonly, it’s a problem in the fiction I don’t know how to solve. Grandma has a secret! And I have no idea what it is! But I should probably be at least foreshadowing it by this point!
In this case, I just sit down and mechanically try to force myself to figure it out, sometimes by outlining, answering questions, brainstorming with a friend, or writing the scene backwards.
You have access to a time machine. What advice would you give to your younger self?
I’d probably ask for advice from her, actually.
I like myself, and I’ve worked hard to develop the skills that I have, but I lost little bits of pieces of me along the way. The original manuscript for Stories of the Wyrd had a magic to it that recent others don’t, a voice that I’ve lost due to trying to tame down “distractions.” My execution was clunkier back then, and in skill I am a better writer, but in imagination I need to go back and do some work.
Same goes for other things. Sometimes I find myself having bitter thoughts that young me would have scoffed at, logically, and I wish I could return to her optimism and confidence. I think the pessimistic way I view certain things due to bad experiences is actually less realistic and more damaging. She took a lot of risks simply because she didn’t understand how risky it was, and it made creations that I’m too afraid to do today. I strongly believe I would be more successful if I could be a little more naïve again.
How do you spend your free time when you are not writing?
Dancing, sewing, painting, learning the violin. Recently I’ve been trying to get out more and actually socialize, live life, but I have a hard time shutting my brain down and enjoying the moment. Often I need to have something productive and progressive to distract myself, but I really do wish I would make more memories.
Tell us more about your upcoming projects. Are you working on anything specific or have plans in the pipeline?
My web comic, Mighty Morphin’ Canine Tales, has started to hit a good groove and I’m looking to expand on my audience with, shock, marketing. Play publication is different than books, and you need to have a good number of productions with reviews before something like Samuel French will consider it, so I’ve decided to self-publish the script for Molly Aire and Becca Ette Do Theatre in 2018 to have a print version to offer to theatres around the country (and anyone who wants to buy), sort of a practice if I do consider self-publishing my novels. At the moment, I’m shopping a manuscript around to agents, and I also have two finished first/second drafts that I think have a better market than the one I poured my blood, sweat, and tears into for the last four years, which I plan on attempting to get picked after this current one, plus many more shelved ones, so I have a while before I make that leap into the indie world.
Finally, are there any nuggets of wisdom that you can impart to other writers?
Have an ego, but keep it wrapped in a good attitude.
I’m a little intimidating, and definitely do have an ego, so I’m not the kind of person who needs to be advised to trust myself. But this means I have first-hand seen the benefits of being full of yourself, and can note objectively the unfairness that happens to those talented aspiring artists who humbly accept their insignificance and statistical unlikelihood of success.
It’s important to think you have something to say and say it with confidence. It’s important to stand by your opinions, to cater to your own tastes, and not to let someone bully you until you’re left demoralized. Or worse, homogenized. You need to know when to tell someone to shut up. I’ve seen many good people, extremely talented people, get torn to shreds because some power-hungry peer used their good natures against them. Moreover, people are interesting when they are unashamedly themselves, even if they rub some people the wrong way.
On the other hand, being arrogant has its pratfalls, obviously, and I think the best solution is to laugh a lot, genuinely listen to understand (which can involve pragmatic argument), and speak your mind in a way that makes people want to listen. Don’t use shame, anger, or intimidation to get your point across. Be positive, enjoy yourself, and be tactful. You can be pleasant while voicing your opinion, even when don’t agree with what anyone is saying. Even if you incorrectly don’t agree with what anyone’s saying. It’s more useful to be honest about your thoughts regardless of how true they are because it opens up everyone to alternative perspectives and enables them to point out flaws in the thinking.
And that’s a wrap! Thank you for spending time with us today and for sharing all of your useful advice, I’m sure all us fantasy and sci-fi fans can’t wait to explore your Wyrd world soon 🙂
