Rivera Sun, author & activist, talks about her new novel and how changing the story can change the world

Rivera Sun is the author of The Way Between, The Lost Heir, The Dandelion Insurrection and other novels, as well as theatrical plays, a study guide to nonviolent action, three volumes of poetry, and numerous articles. She has red hair, a twin sister, and a fondness for esoteric mystics. She went to Bennington College to study writing as a Harcourt Scholar and graduated with a degree in dance. She lives in an earthship house in New Mexico, where she writes essays and novels. She is a trainer in strategy for nonviolent movements and an activist. Rivera has been an aerial dancer, a bike messenger, and a gung-fu style tea server. Everything else about her – except her writing – is perfectly ordinary.
