Justice for DC and YA Heroes Panel

Sarah J. Maas = Catwoman (2018) 

  • Selena’s friends are meant to draw her out from her guarded nature and be a teen in the way she wasn’t able to before because of who she had to take care of 
  • Selena is toward the later end of the teen, age spectrum 
  • It is dual POV (or multi) 
  • There is a character named Lucas Fox, the son of Lucius Fox 
    • I KNOW RIGHT LUCAS = LUCIEN, FOX !!!! I HAD THE SAME WTF OH MY GOD MOMENT 
  • Selena is a bit “quiet” and guarded because of the people she has protected from a young age and growing up so quickly 
  • SJM continually referenced Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn (maybe something important)
  • Her favorite version of Cat woman is Michelle Phipher
    • She kept her in mind when drafting the book but when she started writing her version of Selena is much different that the way Phipher portrayed Selena 
  • SJM doesn’t outline her books, LIKE DOES NOT, so when she was told she had to send DC a three page synopsis of what the book was going to be about she was nervous 
    • But then when she started writing she just didn’t stop and it ended up being 23 (or maybe 33) pages 
  • She advises to not wear leather in July 
    • Selena’s new suit is more “breathable" 
  • She has just sent in/gotten back feedback on her first round of edits 
    • This summer will be a BIG focus on Cat woman edits
