Because I am hard-core about mysteries. I have another cat named Snapple, because I am hard-core about bottled iced tea, I guess. First of all — fantastic name. I wanted to write a character named Roxane because the name feels both feminine and tough to me, so, perfect for a female detective. I knew that was it. Best rodent-based horror movie ever. Which came first for you: Had Roxane been rattling around in your head for a while before you sat down to write this book?
Were there any real-life or fictional muses that shaped her character or was she born entirely from your own imagination? But Roxane herself first came to me basically as I began to write this book. I wanted to play with gender stereotypes, for one thing, and to write a mystery with a natural approach to sexual orientation, et cetera. Roxane is bisexual, and to be honest, I was a little apprehensive knowing that going in, because bisexual characters — particularly bisexual women — are so frequently exploited by writers as titillating diversions: Was this in your mind while developing her — the redemption of the bisexual character?
Bisexual representation in crime fiction is pretty grim and rarely shown in a main character. Which is really stereotypical and harmful. I also really wanted to make this aspect of her character about more than who she sleeps with, to make sure she moves through the world as a queer woman does — for example, she experienced coming out and the family tensions that come with that, et cetera. Are there any other bisexual characters that stand out as noteworthy and realistic?
Outside of crime fiction there are more, especially in YA, but bisexual rep still has a long way to go. A modern trend in the mystery genre seems to be overcompensating for the shabby way women have fared in genre history, reduced to dames or helpless victims, and too many female characters are written as glossy superhumans who solve their cases effortlessly, steamroll men in their path, kick ass and look glamorous while doing it, which is not without appeal, but lacks authenticity.
You get it so much. This is exactly what I was thinking while writing this.
Women in mystery fiction have had it rough. Warshawski for being the female detectives that first got me interested in writing one of my own. And I think all of this ties back to authenticity, as problematic a word as that has become. Are there specific challenges to writing such a nuanced character? Was it hard to write her into her mistakes?
