We’re honoured to have Isabel Cañas join us on the show as she talks us through not only her fabulous new novel, Vampires of El Norte, but also her experience of breaking into publishing as a Mexican-American writer and the pressure on marginalised creators to produce something “fresh”.

Mentioned in this episode:

  • Dracula by Bram Stoker
  • Certain Dark Things by Silvia Moreno-Garcia
  • Twilight by Stephenie Meyer
  • Bram Stoker’s Dracula (1992)
  • Dracula Daily
