Back & Forth: Authentic Voices and Diversity in Fiction

Back & Forth with Sven and Nevs

by Sven Davison

I’d like to broaden this month’s topic and focus on authentic voices. More and more audiences are drawn to the idea that the person behind the story has experienced what they write about: The author has experience as a minority, a drug addict, or the object of sexual harassment. Sven gives the optimistic view, and NEVS plays the troll.

Sven Michael Davison is the author of Blockbuster, a satirical look at action films and the people who make them. He has also penned The God Head Trilogy, a post-cyberpunk tale that examines the darker side of singularity theory, mass effect, and artificial intelligence.

Sven spent many years in Hollywood trying to break into screenwriting while writing trailer copy for movies like Beavis and Butthead Do America and The Relic. He then launched the DVD Production and Content Group for Twentieth Century Fox and spent ten years managing the department where he was responsible for all special features on DVD, Blu-ray, and UMD media.

In addition to hosting the YouTube channel Author/Author, Sven is close to releasing a memoir about traveling to all seven continents in seven years as well as putting the finishing touches on a contemporary fantasy trilogy.

  1. Sorry, Sven, on this one I think I agree more with Nevs than you 🙂 I write about murder and kidnapping. It’d be a pretty scary world if all crime writers had to experience what they wrote about!
