Seven Impossible Things Interview

October 27, 2009


I know its been a little quiet here on the blog front. That would be because I am locked down in my Florida office, knee-deep in writing the second draft of my next novel, The Search for WondLa, which will be out next fall (For those of you who attended an event during the “Spiderwick Farewell Tour”, you may have received a somewhat cryptic postcard promoting it).

I will certainly be posting a lot more about WondLa in the coming months, but I leak a little bit about it in a new interview with Julie Danielson at Seven Impossible Things Before Breakfast. Please to enjoy!

PS – While I am at it, here are a few other interviews I did while promoting The Wyrm King and Adventure of Meno:

Never Abandon Imagination Tony DiTerlizzi: Never abandon imagination.

Imagination is a world of possibility that exists within each of us. It is what makes us uniquely human. It is our creative fingerprint that touches and influences the world around us. Imagination is essential to art and science; to innovation and prosperity. It gives us hope, calls us to action and leads to change.

Whether it’s fairies, dragons, robots or aliens, all of my children’s book characters are siblings born of my imagination – an imagination strengthened through years of encouragement from family, teachers and friends. While so many others abandoned it during their transition from childhood to adulthood, I fiercely held onto mine, hoping for a day when I could share it to inspire the next generation of dreamers. Innovators. World changers.

Imagination empowers us to envision and create a reality of what could be. We must hold it dear, foster it and never abandon it.
