It's GUESTOPIA time again! And today, I'm thrilled to welcome the larger than life, awesomely cool author Gareth Young to the stage. Let's meet him first, and if you have any further questions after the interview, feel free to leave a comment.
Gareth S. Young was born and raised in Scotland, but has now lived for more than 18 years in the American Midwest. This has played havoc with his accent. In 2010, he published his first full length story, a mystery/suspense novel called Monsters.
In 2016, his newest novel, The Wolves of Dynamo was published. Part one of an audacious YA urban fantasy series. He is currently working on The Daedalus Syndrome, the second book in the Dynamo City series.
How many drafts did you write before you let someone read it? Who was that someone?
Six drafts to get everything polished up the way I wanted it.
No, I’m happy with how it turned out. And readers’ responses have been very positive.
What part do you find hardest?
Do you think you’re born with the talent to write or do you think it can be learned?
