Victor Yates: Coming In

Victor Yates

I had the pleasure of kicking off my first episode of The Read with Lamba Literary Award winning author, Victor Yates. I explored Victor’s story from personal to professional, and I came away understanding that he has a definitive voice and perspective in his work and in life.

One of the most powerful points of the interview was when he started to outline the message he wanted to convey to readers of his first novel, A Love Like Blood. He mentioned that he wanted parents of LGBTQ children to “…love them, because they might not always be there in your life.” It strikes me as very sad to need this to be a message to parents because you’d think love would be natural. But unfortunately, it needs to be said. What better way than through a beautiful narrative that follows Carsten Tynes, the protagonist, as he deals with his abusive father?

More strong moments like this are found in the interview below.

Watch it now!

I was recently interviewed by Ecelctica Cafe, a podcast hosted by Dustin and Chance, where we discussed topics of diversity in media, some politics, and what you can expect from my upcoming book, Pangaea: Unsettled Land. We continued a discussion started after my writing of the LGBT Fiction article and I’m happy to have been a part! Take a listen below and tell me what you think.
