liekinloimu asks:

1) Unreliable narrator. Unreliable narrator is not a widely discussed topic, and not easy to pull off well. What do you think about unreliable narrators, and should they be written solely in first person POV? Is it possible to write a third person POV unreliable narrator and not leave the reader feeling the writer themself (as opposed to the character) has been lying to them? Have you ever written an unreliable narrator and if you haven’t, would you ever consider writing one?

2) Mixing first person POV and third person POV in the same story. Do you have an opinion on this? Have you ever done it? What would be your advice for a writer who wanted to write that?
