Simon is one fascinating author. I had no idea about his past, but he is a terrific writer. And as you can hear, a very smart one. I am ashamed to admit I have not read him before, but I will eagerly await the next book. His accent is terrific, and he is a terrific storyteller. I knew nothing about him before this interview, and I am so glad I did it.
He wrote a trilogy before, which seemed to be a hit, the SANCTUS trilogy. Will have to check it out.
Hear about how he writes, how he writes with kids, and the editing process. I often wonder what makes a good writer, or even a great writer. SIMON is so easygoing and interesting.
What will he do next? so many good writers overseas. this is another one. ENJOY! DAVID
