She grew up in New England, where she lives and works as a crime fiction editor and story consultant for TV adaptation. She received a Masters in Prose Fiction from the University of East Anglia, and thinks fondly of her time there, partially because she learned a lot but mostly because there were a ton of bunnies on campus.  I chat with her about her writing process, tv show recommendations, and dealing with burnout as a writer.  Where to find Rory: Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/itsrorypower/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/itsrorypower Website: https://itsrorypower.com/ Socials: Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/jessicacwrites/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/jessicacwrites Newsletter: https://www.subscribepage.com/t7x2e3
