At The Studio on KRUU this week, NYT best-selling author D. J. MacHale chatted with me about Sylo, his new YA thriller. He related lessons he learned from famous people (Alfred Hitchcock, Stephen King, Haig Manoogian) and humbler folks (a young fan, a school librarian, his 10-year-old daughter). For a guy who writes thrillers, he had lots of thoughtful advice, on writing–and life.
