[47] Layne Fargo, author of Temper

“It’s kind of impossible to have a likeable female character. People will always find something to complain about.” – Layne Fargo

Layne Fargo is a thriller author with a background in theater and library science. Her debut novel Temper is available now from Simon & Schuster’s Scout Press imprint. She’s a Pitch Wars mentor, a member of the Chicagoland chapter of Sisters in Crime, and the co-creator of the podcast Unlikeable Female Characters.

Renee Powers founded Feminist Book Club in 2018 to provide a space for intersectional feminists to learn, grow, and connect. When not reading or running the biz, you can find her drinking coffee and trying unsuccessfully to teach her retired racing greyhound how to fetch. Favorite genres: feminist thrillers, contemporary literary fiction, short stories, and anything that might be described as "irreverent"
