Tune in for Arthur’s thoughts on The Heart Principle by Helen Hoang. Her third #ownvoices contemporary romance stars Anna Sun, a violinist who seeks out a one-night stand after her boyfriend Julian announces that they should try an open relationship before making plans to tie the knot, and Quan Diep, the tattooed and motorcycle-riding cousin of Michael Larsen from the author’s debut novel The Kiss Quotient. Initially, Quan seems to fit the bill for a one-night stand, but maybe he’s actually qualified for much more…? This episode also includes topics like advocation for better disability representation in media, a recitation of a Frasier scene that showcases the eponymous radio psychiatrist in all his control-freak glory, and the numerous striking similarities between The Heart Principle and The Kiss Quotient—including the fact that Quan, like Michael, is always in Cinnamon Roll Mode.

I live in my hometown of Seattle, Washington, where I'm delving into the career of a science-fiction author. The first story I dedicated myself to writing was about a young girl with telekinetic abilities. I'm still fascinated with superheroes, especially the ones in the Marvel Universe; it’s a tie between Spider-Man and Iron Man as my favorite. Coldplay, Ingrid Michaelson, Imagine Dragons, Ellie Goulding, and The Killers are just a few of the artists you would find me listening to while writing. --- Twitter: arthur_ant18 --- Goodreads: https://www.goodreads.com/user/show/144101970-arthur-howell View all posts by Arthur Howell
