Matty Dalrymple talks with Dharma Kelleher about WRITING FROM OR ABOUT THE LGBTQIA+ COMMUNITY, including Dharma's experience with traditional publishing and why she went indie; the importance of remembering why you're writing (it's probably not for the money); letting the reader draw the lessons from your book; finding commonality among the differences; the importance of giving your character agency; the danger of tropes becoming words and then damaging actions; tapping into the expertise of sensitivity readers; and the importance of getting a variety of input.
