1. Can you tell us a little bit about JOSHUA DREAD: THE NAMELESS HERO ?
Joshua Dread and his friends are receiving strange messages from a mysterious organization known as Gyfted and Talented. Soon they discover that they’re being recruited to join the greatest superhero team of all time. But what will Joshua’s supervillain parents do if they find out that the new celebrity superhero is . . . their son? Along the way, Joshua and his friends meet a mutant librarian, a defective robotic butler, a deadly gelatinous blob, vandalizing clones, an evil maniac in an indestructible bionic suit and lots of screaming young fans.
2. What is your favorite thing about being a writer?
I consider myself tremendously fortunate to have turned my passion into my job. Every day, I get to wake up and do what I love.
3. What’s the hardest thing about being a writer?
The flipside of #2 is that now writing’s my JOB. Which means it’s work. And like any job, it can be hard to maintain the enthusiasm, to keep the work fresh and interesting.
4. If you could spend one day inside the world of any book which book would you pick?
The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, by C.S. Lewis, so that I could sample a bit of Turkish delight.
5. What advice do you have for the young writers in my classroom?
Keep writing. Keep writing. Keep writing. Keep writing. Keep writing.
