Elizabeth Miles grew up in Chappaqua, New York, not far from New York City. She graduated cum laude from Boston University in 2004, worked for several years at the Boston Phoenix, and now writes for the Portland Phoenix, an alternative weekly newspaper. She has won several awards from the New England Press Association and was nominated for an Association of Alternative Newsweeklies Award. Elizabeth serves on the board of trustees of Portland Players, a community theater and second home. She loves pizza; she can often be found running around on stage while scantily clad; and a cold winter night in Maine is one of the creepiest and most beautiful things she can think of. Fury is Elizabeth’s first novel.
For those who don't know, who are the Furies?
Fury is told from two different perspectives, Em and Chase. Whose perspective did you enjoy writing from more?
t-shirt design for Fury bears the phrase, "Revenge is Sweet." Em and Chase both do some pretty awful things to be chosen by the Furies, but did you take any pleasure in writing the scenes where the Furies get their revenge?
Without giving away any major spoilers for anyone who hasn't read Fury yet, what can we expect from the sequel, Envy?
Thank you so much to Elizabeth Miles for answering my questions and to Michelle for setting up this interview!
