MisCon 32 Panel Volunteer

Alisha A. Knaff lives in Seattle with her two cats, Hal and Odin, who consistently assure her that she is in no danger of becoming a crazy cat lady. By day, she works to promote other people's products, and by night she weaves bizarre imaginations into hopefully coherent tales. Her urban fantasy novel, School of Sight is available through Razorgirl Press.

    Genre fiction - be it television, movies, comics, or books - has seen a tremendous increase in the number of LGBT characters. Is this a natural maturation of the writing process, or a conscious decision in the name of diversity? Our panelists will discuss their own LGBT characters, and how these characters came to be included in the narrative.

  • panel Sat 4:00 - 4:50 PM, Character and Transformation, Ballroom B
    Moderator: Dean Wells; Panelists: Carol Berg, Alisha Knaff, Tod McCoy, Dean Wells

    Transformation is the reinvention of the self by the self. It represents the heroes search for wholeness. Discuss with our panelists this integral process of your character becoming a more complete human being.
