Q: Where did you get your idea for Vasilisa?
A: The idea came from a children’s picture book “Serpent Slayer: And Other Stories of Strong Women by Katrin Tchana” (with gorgeous art work by Trina Schart Hyman). A woman dresses as a man to rescue her husband, and to do so she passes three tests of strength, skill, and strategy. The picture book took on tall-tale quality as the woman injured her opponents in wrestling and shattered a tree by shooting it with an arrow. How did she become so strong? I wrote Vasilisa to answer that question.

Gray Heron, a novel about a bird, an older man, two kids, and the circle of life: it has been a rewarding experience to write and publish. It is an honor to have received this review from https://t.co/Iy5bKxURRi. #CleanWip pic.twitter.com/pnWJ9BbwIl— John Wilde (@WriterJohnWilde) February 21, 2020
