"I write about children and young adults," says Margo Lanagan, "because I'm interested in what it's like to piece together the world, to make connections and realise things for the first time..."

In a 20-year writing career, Lanagan has explored, with startling emotional depth and technical range, young characters in both real-world and fantasy settings, in novels and short fiction, in both animal and human habitats. Among this work is the prodigally imaginative trilogy of short stories, 'White Time', 'Black Juice', and 'Red Spikes', which earned her an international readership and a slew of awards.

Her lyricism and inventiveness combine with a robust approach to the subject matter for young readers. 'Tender Morsels', a powerful re-imagining of the Snow White and Rose Red tale, has courted controversy with its unflinching evocations of the characters' sexual lives and the devastations they bear. It was joint winner of Best Novel in the 2009 World Fantasy Awards.

Join her in coversation with Eirlys Hunter.
