Antiheroines to the rescue

I had a great opportunity to be interviewed by Belinda Crawford, indie author of the Hero Rebellion series. Belinda has been running occasional interviews with writers who have created antiheroines, those fabulous females who run against the grain.  They’re not good girls, but often they do good in their own inimitable ways.


Noomi Rapace played Lisbeth Salander in the movies.

One of my favourites (and most unique) would be Lisbeth Salander in the Millennium trilogy of books by Stieg Larsson. She was so badly damaged and antisocial, yet was highly intelligent, utterly determined and protective of vulnerable people.

My character Carly, in my Young Adult novel Facing Up, is an antiheroine in her own way, grumpy and antisocial but trying to deal with the guilt eating away at her. Below is a link to Belinda’s website where she has interviewed me about  writing Carly, so please click if you’re interested:

Who’s your favourite antiheroine from books or movies?

  1. That’s a good question – I am going to have to think about it, as there are some good ones out there.

  2. Would Katniss from Hunger Games be an antiheroine? She certainly has qualities/issues that would put her in the category.
