Episode 21: YA author Brian Katcher

Today we have award winner Brian Katcher on to talk about writing for young adults, starting new, starting over, and really killing your darlings -- like, whole project kind of darlings -- and how to move on from disappointment and celebrate success. We also talk research and balancing work with a day job.

Brian is a school librarian and the author of five books for young adults, including the Stonewall Award winner Almost Perfect, which also was named one of the American Library Association's 2010 Best Books for Young Adults. His debut novel, Playing With Matches, was an ALA 2009 Best Book for Young Adults, and his most recent novel is Deacon Locke Went to Prom.
