Interview with Duyu Wander, Author of Arrival of The Moon Hare

25 Oct 2023

What’s the story behind the story? What inspired you to write Arrival of The Moon Hare?

I have a profound passion for the psychological challenges that arise when an individual must confront the unknown. I also have a great love for Japanese culture, anime, and pretty much anything related to horror. I combined all of these interests to create this series.

What’s your favorite genre to read? Is it the same as your favorite genre to write?

Yes, dark fantasy novel with psychological and horror elements.

What books are on your TBR pile right now?

More than I could count, probably. Among them are: Dreamer’s Throne by Seth Ring, Stolen Tongues by Felix Blackwell, Betta by Sammy Scott, Yami-Hara by Mizuki Tsujimura, and A Budding Scientist in a Fantasy World by Acaswell.

What scene in your book was your favorite to write?

Honestly, I enjoyed writing all of it, but I’ve noticed that it’s easier for me to write scenes that include a lot of humor or horror elements.

Do you have any quirky writing habits? (lucky mugs, cats on laps, etc.)

No, I don’t. I need to be left alone so I can focus.

Do you have a motto, quote, or philosophy you live by?

Write what you wish to read.

If you could choose one thing for readers to remember after reading your book, what would it be?

Even new authors can write good books.
