NWU Author Interview: Tasha Fierce

Tasha Fierce

Nothing Without Us is an own-voices, multi-genre collection of short stories where the protagonists identify as disabled, Deaf, neurodiverse, Spoonie, and/or manage mental illness.


Nathan Fréchette, Publishing Director of Renaissance, interviews Tasha Fierce, author of The Living Among the Dead, which will appear in the Nothing Without Us anthology this fall.

Story summary: What’s it like to feel like you have to ‘pass as alive’ among the living? When nobody wants to believe you’re dead, even though you’ve tried to explain it to them, you’ve no choice but to keep it a secret.
