Ep. 03: LGBT & Humour in Young Adult Fiction with Simon James Green
In This Episode…
In this episode, I chat with Simon James Green, author of Noah Can’t Even. We discuss why LGBT and humour are important in YA fiction, especially today, and the upcoming Proud anthology, in which Simon features with his short story about gay penguins.
We also discuss Noah Can’t Even being adapted into a TV show, whether YA fiction is inclusive enough yet despite the rise in LGBT themes, and what’s next on the cards for Simon.
