This year, during class visits from St. Mary’s Catholic School, we’ve been reading THE NIGHT GARDENER by Jonathan Auxier. It’s a dark, wonderful tale, and the kids have been enjoying it so much, I’ve even had children stop me in the grocery store begging me to tell them a few secrets from upcoming chapters. (I don’t.)
So when I came across an interview with Auxier that uses questions from eight other children’s book authors, I was super interested to hear what he had to say. You can read the full interview by clicking here.
If my group of writers doing Camp NaNoWriMo could take away one great piece of advice from this interview, I think it would be regarding distractions. Auxier doesn’t even have INTERNET ACCESS on his phone or computer! Wow. That’s dedication to writing.
