Premee Mohamed is an Indo-Caribbean scientist and speculative fiction writer whose first novel, "Beneath The Rising" has just been released. But I discovered her through her wonderful short stories.

In this conversation we talk about what a good writing day looks like (and what to do on those other days), the inspiration for some of her stories, her writing process and how she organizes her ideas, why short stories are like tattoos, and how the phrase "it's just photons" makes writing easier.
