I've been looking forward to chatting with Jonathan Auxier for a long time. Jonathan is an award-winning, New York Times bestselling author of books for young readers. His titles include Peter Nimble and his Fantastic Eyes; The Night Gardener; Sophie Quire and the Last Storyguard; and Spirit Animals: The Burning Tide. He recently had the opportunity to return to his screenwriting roots when The Night Gardener was optioned by Disney.
Jonathan and I discuss the joys of first drafts, C.S. Lewis's words on children's literature, what it's like when Disney comes calling, and Jonathan's harshest critic (hint: he looks a lot like the guy in his mirror). I also coax him into giving us a few hints as to what he's got next in the pipeline (or in his case, the chimney).
Find out more about Jonathan and his books at his website, The Scop.
