Join us as we continue to discuss The Diviners and ask author Alesha Escobar questions about her process, her characters, the plot, and everything in between. How did you come up the landscape and description for how the spirit world looks?
I did a lot of research on shamanism and legends surrounding the spirit world. I thought it was fascinating how the spirit world is often described as a mirror of our world and that in the center is a magical, thriving, tree. I definitely knew I wanted to use this as the landscape in the story but also add my own flair to it.If you could pick a soundtrack for your book, what would it be?
Ooh, there’s definitely a mix of upbeat and mellow throughout the story, so I think a fun soundtrack would include some 90’s R&B (because that would totally be Kelsey’s vibe), and if Tina were riding along with her then either some Portishead or Esthero. I have an eclectic taste in music so I love listening to different styles and genres.
