An enlightening Q&A with award-winning author Kiran Millwood Hargrave, exploring the Gothic world of Kiran’s debut novel for young adults, The Deathless Girls.

Written as a prequel to Bram Stoker’s Dracula, the book marries the classic Gothic milieu with very contemporary themes such as representation of marginalised communities, LGBTQ relationships, feminism and friendship.

Gothic, intoxicating, feminist and romantic – this is the breathtakingly imagined untold story of the brides of Dracula.
