Interview with Jordanna Max Brodsky, author of The Immortals


Please welcome Jordanna Max Brodsky to The Qwillery as part of the 2016 Debut Author Challenge Interviews. The Immortals was published on February 16th by Orbit.



Interview with Jordanna Max Brodsky, author of The Immortals




TQWelcome to The Qwillery. When and why did you start writing?

Jordanna:  I started writing seriously due to sheer competitive jealousy. My lovely husband fulfilled his lifelong goal of starring on Broadway a few years ago. The only way to cool my burning envy was to get off my ass and start writing that novel I’d always dreamed about.



TQAre you a plotter, a pantser or a hybrid?

Jordanna:  I always start out with a plotter’s intentions and outlines, then wind up flying pants-less three lines in, only to come back to plotting by the end. It’s a bit of a plot-pant tango.



TQWhat is the most challenging thing for you about writing?

Jordanna:  Remembering that I’m writing a fantasy, not a James Michener novel! I’ve got a background in history and academia, so I tend to get caught up in factual details. I can spend hours researching the exact layout of a certain New York block before reminding myself: “This is a story about Greek gods in modern Manhattan. Strict accuracy is not my most pressing concern!”



TQWhat has influenced your writing?

Jordanna:  I have a wide variety of passions: science fiction, mythology, American history, the outdoors, politics, feminism, and adorable dogs…to name just a few. Perhaps that explains why (to my agent’s chagrin) I tend to create stories that don’t fit neatly into any one genre. The Immortals is a contemporary fantasy, but it also contains elements of noir, historical fiction, action-adventure, bildungsroman, and romance.



TQDescribe The Immortals in 140 characters or less.

Jordanna:  Artemis, the Greek goddess of the hunt, prowls the streets of modern Manhattan, mercilessly punishing men who abuse women.



TQTell us something about The Immortals that is not found in the book description.

Jordanna:  Artemis, who now goes by the name Selene DiSilva, has lived in Manhattan since it was a tiny settlement in the 1600s, so she knows the city intimately. The action of the book takes place all over the island, in secret places even many longtime residents never see but that are real locations nonetheless. In some ways, the book is as much a love letter to New York as it is to the Olympians.



TQWhat inspired you to write The Immortals? What appeals to you about writing Contemporary Fantasy?

Jordanna:  I’d always wanted to write a book about Greek gods living in the modern day, but it wasn’t until I’d lived in New York for many years that Selene’s character began to take shape. Whether you’re walking in Central Park or sitting on the subway late at night, you’re constantly surrounded by strangers. Visitors often think people in my city are rude or mean, and in my experience that’s simply not true. We may appear a little bit closed off, but our aloofness is a survival strategy: a way to secure a little privacy among a throng of eight and half million people. I think it’s human nature to start imagining what secrets might hide behind all those stern faces.

The very first scene I wrote was a prologue that I later cut from the book. I wrote it in the second person, speaking to the average New Yorker who might spot a silver-eyed woman on the subway and wonder about her story. Then a man who’s attacked a teenage girl in the park finds himself facing this same silver-eyed woman, a six-foot-tall vigilante avenger who’s holding an arrow to his throat and thinks she’s a goddess. As a jaded New Yorker, that sort of confrontation doesn’t actually sound so farfetched. But I started thinking…what would it be like if she really was a goddess after all?



TQWhat sort of research did you do for The Immortals? Do you have a favorite Greek myth?

Jordanna:  I had a basic background in mythology before I started, but I still did an immense amount of research. I traveled to Greece and Rome, and I read everything I could, of course, from scholarly treatises on ancient Greek cult practices to every myth I could find about Artemis. My favorite is still one I learned as a kid, about Artemis and Acteon:

Acteon is a young hunter who boasts that he has the best hounds in the land. One day, he stumbles upon Artemis bathing in a forest pool. Even though it’s forbidden to see the chaste goddess naked, he stays to watch. When she catches him spying, she doesn’t scare him off, or beat him up, or even just put him to death. She turns him into a stag. His hunting hounds, seeing the prey in their midst, turn on the stag and rip him limb from limb. That’s the kind of justice Artemis used to mete out in the ancient world—and it’s the kind of justice Selene wishes she could still deliver today.



TQWho was the easiest character to write and why? The hardest and why?

Jordanna:  Perhaps paradoxically, my male protagonist, the classics professor Theo Schultz, was the easiest for me. He’s an intellectual and a talker, who uses humor as a defense mechanism. His personality popped off the page to me from the beginning.

Selene herself, on the other hand, was always a challenge because she’s nothing like me. She doesn’t let anyone get inside her heart or her head. Her nature as an immortal also made things difficult. On the one hand, I wanted her to kick ass. I wanted her to have super powers and be invulnerable. (How awesome would it be if Artemis could still control the phases of the moon?) But as a fan of superhero movies, I didn’t want to fall into the old trap of creating characters who are so invincible that we don’t worry about them. Or so supernatural that we can’t identify. So Artemis, and my other gods, are not omnipotent or omniscient anymore. They retain some semblance of their old attributes, and they age very slowly, but they’re not invulnerable. Some of them are ready to die; others would do anything to stay immortal. All of them are, to a greater or lesser extent, going just a little bit mad—because that seems the only rational response to having existed for three thousand years.



TQWhy have you chosen to include or not chosen to include social issues in The Immortals?

Jordanna:  I can never resist opining on social issues! It’s a real problem at cocktail parties.

To many people, Artemis is the ultimate feminist role model, so I couldn’t help addressing that in the book. She’s strong, independent, fearless, and determined to assert a woman’s right to live however she chooses. But those traits meant something different in Ancient Greece than they do today. In a patriarchal society, men couldn’t conceive that a hunter and punisher could also be a mother or a wife. Artemis’s only option was celibacy. Because of her background, Selene buys into this dichotomy even today—so in that way, she isn’t really a feminist at all.

In the modern age, we no longer see femininity and ferocity as mutually exclusive. And we certainly don’t think that sex necessarily equates to motherhood or marriage. When she meets Theo, Selene has to explore the necessity of her own virginity and isolation. How much of her behavior is a choice and how much is simply an acceptance of the role that a male-dominated society has thrust upon her? Acknowledging that those questions exist is, to me, a quintessentially feminist endeavor.



TQWhich question about The Immortals do you wish someone would ask? Ask it and answer it!

Jordanna:  Some day someone will ask about the chapter titles. They’re all epithets! And all the ones that refer to Olympians are actually taken from Ancient Greek. Artemis herself has close to three hundred known epithets, or names—more than any other god. They range from the Good Maiden to the Relentless One to She Who Has Bear Paws for Hands. I wanted to include them because each embodies a different, often contradictory aspect of her personality. As human beings, we each have at least that many names, even if we never articulate them. Like the gods, some of these titles are roles or personality traits we’ve chosen for ourselves—others have been thrust upon us. We can’t help identifying with someone like Selene, who struggles to define her identity in terms of both her own sense of self and others’ expectations of her.



TQGive us one or two of your favorite non-spoilery quotes from The Immortals.

Jordanna:

“This was her city. Her people. They might not kneel at her statue as her acolytes had of old, but they worshiped at the same altar she did. We’re all mystai in the same cult, she realized. Bowing to a city that can be as harsh and as compassionate, as fickle and as stalwart, as any Olympian.



TQWhat's next?

Jordanna:  I’m just finishing up the second book in the Olympus Bound series, which has involved deep diving into all sorts of new fields including obscure Roman religions, geocentric astronomy, and the origins of Christmas. After that, Book Three!



TQThank you for joining us at The Qwillery.

Interview with Jordanna Max Brodsky, author of The Immortals
Manhattan has many secrets. Some are older than the city itself.

The city sleeps. Selene DiSilva walks her dog along the banks of the Hudson. She is alone -- just the way she likes it. She doesn't believe in friends, and she doesn't speak to her family. Most of them are simply too dangerous.

In the predawn calm, Selene finds the body of a young woman washed ashore, gruesomely mutilated and wreathed in laurel. Her ancient rage returns. And so does the memory of a promise she made long ago -- when her name was Artemis.

Review: The Immortals by Jordanna Max Brodsky
Manhattan has many secrets. Some are older than the city itself.

The city sleeps. Selene DiSilva walks her dog along the banks of the Hudson. She is alone -- just the way she likes it. She doesn't believe in friends, and she doesn't speak to her family. Most of them are simply too dangerous.

In the predawn calm, Selene finds the body of a young woman washed ashore, gruesomely mutilated and wreathed in laurel. Her ancient rage returns. And so does the memory of a promise she made long ago -- when her name was Artemis.



Melanie's Thoughts

Selene DiSilva has a solitary life, just her and her dog. Her mission in life is to avoid her family and rescue women who are in trouble. She arrives too late to save a young woman who has been horrifically mutilated and wreathed in laurel. Selene's past, which she had hoped was well behind her, has come back to haunt her. When another young girl is murdered in equally horrific fashion Selene reluctantly teams up with the classics professor Theo Schultz to find who is responsible and stop any other innocents from dying.

I thoroughly enjoyed The Immortals. I thought that the premise of Brodsky's plot was very clever. Selene, as the long, and almost forgotten goddess Artemis was well written and in latter parts of the story very conflicted between who she used to be and who she wants to become. The story turns into a bit of a lesson on Greek mythology as we learn more about Selene's (ancient) past. I kind of felt a bit smarter by the time I had finished The Immortals and all without having to rely on the handy Glossary at the back of the book.

Selene herself admits the gods were capricious and cruel. After all the centuries of solitary living she wants to be more than she was at the height of her power but achieving this may take a Herculaneum effort. Help may come in the unsuspecting package of a rather geeky classics professor. Theo could have been dull in comparison to the former goddess Selene but surprisingly he wasn't. Theo could hold his own and all thanks to Brodsky's ability to write convincing characters. I think the only characters that were a tad stereotypical were Selene's fellow fallen gods - Apollo, Hermes and Dionysus but I forgave this for what they added to the overall plot.

Overall, The Immortals is a solid debut for Brodsky. I will be very interested to see how Brodsky crafts a series out of these characters. The Immortals is an enjoyable read that will have you brushing up on your Latin and reaching for a textbook of Greek mythology.

2016 Debut Author Challenge - February Debuts
For fans of Kate Morton and Sarah Waters, here’s a magnetic debut novel of wrenching family secrets, forbidden love, and heartbreaking loss housed within the grand gothic manor of Black Rabbit Hall.

Ghosts are everywhere, not just the ghost of Momma in the woods, but ghosts of us too, what we used to be like in those long summers . . .
Amber Alton knows that the hours pass differently at Black Rabbit Hall, her London family’s country estate, where no two clocks read the same. Summers there are perfect, timeless. Not much ever happens. Until, of course, it does.

More than three decades later, Lorna is determined to be married within the grand, ivy-covered walls of Pencraw Hall, known as Black Rabbit Hall among the locals. But as she’s drawn deeper into the overgrown grounds, half-buried memories of her mother begin to surface and Lorna soon finds herself ensnared within the manor’s labyrinthine history, overcome with an insatiable need for answers about her own past and that of the once-happy family whose memory still haunts the estate.

Stunning and atmospheric, this debut novel is a thrilling spiral into the hearts of two women separated by decades but inescapably linked by the dark and tangled secrets of Black Rabbit Hall.

2016 Debut Author Challenge - February Debuts
Good guy Karl Bender is a thirty-something bar owner whose life lacks love and meaning. When he stumbles upon a time-travelling worm hole in his closet, Karl and his best friend Wayne develop a side business selling access to people who want to travel back in time to listen to their favorite bands. It's a pretty ingenious plan, until Karl, intending to send Wayne to 1980, transports him back to 980 instead. Though Wayne sends texts extolling the quality of life in tenth century "Mannahatta," Karl is distraught that he can't bring his friend back.

Enter brilliant, prickly, overweight astrophysicist, Lena Geduldig. Karl and Lena's connection is immediate. While they work on getting Wayne back, Karl and Lena fall in love -- with time travel, and each other. Unable to resist meddling with the past, Karl and Lena bounce around time. When Lena ultimately prevents her own long-ago rape, she alters the course of her life and threatens her future with Karl.

A high-spirited and engaging novel, EVERY ANXIOUS WAVE plays ball with the big questions of where we would go and who we would become if we could rewrite our pasts, as well as how to hold on to love across time.

2016 Debut Author Challenge - February Debuts
A debut novel about the disappearance of a famous Brazilian novelist and the young translator who turns her life upside down to follow her author's trail.

Deep in gambling debt, the celebrated Brazilian writer Beatriz Yagoda is last seen holding a suitcase and a cigar and climbing into an almond tree. She abruptly vanishes.

In snowy Pittsburgh, her American translator Emma hears the news and, against the wishes of her boyfriend and Beatriz's two grown children, flies immediately to Brazil. There, in the sticky, sugary heat of Rio, Emma and her author's children conspire to solve the mystery of Yagoda's curious disappearance and staunch the colorful demands of her various outstanding affairs: the rapacious loan shark with a zeal for severing body parts, and the washed-up and disillusioned editor who launched Yagoda's career years earlier.

Idra Novey's exhilarating debut is an international romp: a madcap blend of mystery, romance, noir, and humor.

After the missiles tore up the Earth, societies crumbled, leaving scattered patches of humanity struggling to survive. Slowly, a group came together, helping each other regrow a world worth living in.

And then the Others attacked.

Realizing the need to truly protect themselves, they formed the Academy: a place where young people could be built into an elite military force. The training is intense…and so are the consequences for failure.

Sloan Radcliffe is not a failure. In fact, she’s the best of the best—the girls’ Senior Champion—and the only one who can match her is matched to her: her betrothed, Jared Dawson. They are the perfect couple: exemplary fighters, pure leaders, and exceptional role models. But as their time at the Academy draws to a close, Sloan is starting to see signs that maybe their life is built upon secrets…and that secrets are never a strong foundation.

With the battlefront looming and whispers growing louder, Sloan is caught up not only between her loyalties to her people, but also to the man she loves.

A combination of military sci-fi and dystopian thriller, R. H. Scott’s Chosen Soldiers is an intense look at a young woman’s world shattering under the weight of its own illusions.

Square Wave
Two Dollar Radio, February 9, 2016
Trade Paperback and eBook, 394 pages

2016 Debut Author Challenge - February Debuts
Carl Stagg, a writer researching imperial power struggles in 17th century Sri Lanka, ekes out a living as a watchman in a factionalized America where confidence in democracy has eroded. Along his nightly patrol, Stagg finds a beaten prostitute, one in a series of monstrous attacks. Suspicious of his supervisor's intentions, Stagg partners with a fellow part-time watchman, Ravan, to seek the truth. Ravan hails from a family developing storm-dispersal technologies, whose research is jointly funded by the Indian and American governments.

The watchmen's discoveries put a troubling complexion on Stagg's research, giving it new shape and impetus, just as the weather modification project begins to appear less about dispersing storms than weaponizing them.

By gracefully weaving a study of the psychological effects of a militarized state upon its citizenry with topics as diverse as microtonal music and cloud physics, Square Wave signals the triumphant arrival of a young writer certain to be considered one of the most ambitious and intelligent of his generation.

2016 Debut Author Challenge - February Debuts
It Kills Slowly…

In an excavation site in Mexico, a team of archeologists uncovers the lost tomb of Montezuma--and a deadly strain of anthrax as ancient as the Biblical plagues. One by one, the team falls violently ill, bleeding from their eyes and ears before succumbing to a slow, painful death. Whatever was buried with the Aztec chief is still active, infectious--and now airborne…

It Spreads Quickly…

In Austin, a young archeologist listens to the dying words of her mentor in Mexico--a warning to quarantine the site before all hell breaks loose. In Atlanta, the CDC's Dr. Mason Williams leads an emergency squad on a life-or-death mission--into the hot zone. At Fort Detrick, an army officer sends a trained team to secure the anthrax--as a biological weapon. But time is running out. The disease is spreading rapidly across the border, into the airports, and across the globe, killing thousands. With no cure, no vaccine, and no way to contain it, there will be no hope for humanity--to survive…

What the Waves Know
William Morrow Paperbacks, February 9, 2016
Trade Paperback and eBook, 352 pages

2016 Debut Author Challenge - February Debuts
In the tradition of Sue Monk Kidd and Beth Hoffman comes a compelling debut novel about a young woman's quest to find herself—and her voice—on the island where she lost both.

The tiny state of Rhode Island is home to even tinier Tillings Island—which witnessed the biggest event of Izabella Rae Haywood's life. For it was there, on Iz's sixth birthday, that her father left...and took her voice with him.

Eight years later in the summer of 1974, Iz’s mother is through with social workers, psychiatrists and her daughter's silence. In one last attempt to return Iz’s voice, the motley pair board the ferry to Tillings in hopes that the journey will help Izabella heal herself by piecing together splintered memories of the day her words fled.

But heartbreak is a difficult puzzle to solve, and everyone in Tillings seems to know something Iz does not. Worse, each has an opinion about Izabella's dreamer of a father, the undercurrents of whose actions have spun so many lives off course.

Now, as the island's annual Yemayá festival prepares to celebrate the ties that bind mothers to children, lovers to each other, and humankind to the sea, Izabella must unravel the tangled threads of her own history and reclaim a voice gone silent…or risk losing herself—and any chance she may have for a future—to the past.

What the Waves Know is a moving, magical novel that asks us to consider the stories which tell the truth and the stories we tell ourselves.
