Before There Was Buffy by Maria V. Snyder

August 12, 2010, Posted by Georgia at 4:00 pm

Before there was Buffy… …there were a few other female TV characters who knew how to hold their own. And I’m going to credit them with my love of books with strong female protagonists. Now, I’m not going to go as far back to Mrs. Emma Peel in The Avengers as I didn’t grow up [...]

Guest Post by Holly Cupala

August 12, 2010, Posted by Georgia at 3:00 pm

Thank you to everyone at Eve’s Fan Garden for inviting me to the Midsummer Night’s Chat! In thinking about what makes a strong female character, I started to ponder—how do we measure whether a character is strong or weak? By traits? By actions? By something else? I’m not sure it’s possible to boil strong characters [...]

Strong female characters… Strive to be their unique selves! We spend so much of our teen years trying to fit in—the right clothes, hairstyle, taste in music—that I love to read about girls who embrace being different. And authentic. Dairy Queen by Catherine Gilbert Murdock Ash by Malinda Lo Strike out on adventures. Would I [...]

Guest Blog by Gayle Forman

August 12, 2010, Posted by Georgia at 1:00 pm

What makes a character strong? Is it her ability to kick some serious ass, a la Katniss from Suzanne Collins’s The Hunger Games? To survive in a foreign country’s war, keeping a cousin safe, like Daisy in Meg Rosoff’s How I Live Now? To face an attacker like Annabel in Sarah Dessen’s Just Listen? To utter her name and escape the [...]

Guest Post by Beth Fantaskey

August 12, 2010, Posted by Georgia at 12:00 pm

Last year I was invited to write a guest post for this wonderful blog, which celebrates “strong women.” At that time, I was just learning that my first YA novel, Jessica’s Guide to Dating on the Dark Side, featured a “strong” heroine – because believe it or not, I didn’t know it until readers told [...]

The Power of a Penny (Lane) by Elizabeth Eulberg

August 12, 2010, Posted by Georgia at 11:30 am

The Power of a Penny (Lane) My characters aren’t faced with epic battles that require swords or magic powers. They have to deal with regular high school problems, which can be even more frightening than facing down an evil creature. Even though my characters are mere mortals, I wanted to be sure to create strong, [...]
