NYT best-selling author D. J. MacHale reveals success secrets he's gleaned from celebrities and fans while directing films, executive producing TV series, and penning wildly popular young adult novels. Paraphrasing the famous (Alfred Hitchcock, Stephen King, Haig Manoogian) and the relatively unknown (a young fan, a school librarian, his 10-year-old daughter) D. J. dispenses crowd-sourced wisdom nearly every minute. How to deal with reluctant readers, wordsmithing vs. storythinking, long-haul truckers' reading preferences--it's all covered here!

You'll also hear D. J.'s thoughts on fan fiction, Skype school visits, and his brand new thriller (deemed "unputdownable" by Kirkus) Sylo. Don't miss this show!
