This week I'm talking to Adele Wearing of Fox Spirit Books, winner of the 2015 British Fantasy Society Best Independent Press Award.
Adele, known to the skulk as ‘Aunty Fox’ is a lifelong genre fan, was for some time a book blogger and then set up Fox Spirit in 2012 in response to, well, trickery and cunning on the part of her friends. Seriously, it was set up! Sometimes referred to as ‘feral leader’ or ‘Captain’, Aunty Fox takes care of a skulk of writers, artists, editors and other foxy folk, while trying to keep everything in place to get the books out. In addition she has a full time day job (which we do not discuss). Since she lacks the swiftness and cunning that typifies her species, Aunty Fox trains in mixed martial arts, in order to ensure her grinning muzzle and infamous brush tail don’t end up on a huntsman’s wall.
