Becoming Persephone: An Interview w/ Author Cait Reynolds
Stephanie’s character comes from a lot of different places. Her sly, snarky observations of and nicknames for the high school social cliques are definitely part of me. As the daughter of a psychologist and a social worker, I’ve always been fascinated by human behavior. I was the eight-year-old who could tell you the difference between a psychopath and a sociopath. In school, as an outsider, I amused myself by analyzing everyone and everything around me. My senior year, I wrote a Jonathan Swift/Volatire-esque satire about the senior class (check it out here: http://caitreynolds.com/2015/11/the-roots-of-downcast-part-2-high-school/). I even wrote a paper for an anthropology class in college about the social structures of my high school (you can find it on my blog – http://caitreynolds.com/2015/10/the-roots-of-downcast-part-1-college/).
