Librarian Natalie McCall chats with debut author Ryan Douglass. Ryan’s book, The Taking of Jake Livingston, is about a teenage boy who has to deal with ghosts and racism at his mostly white college prep school. It’s a horror coming-of-age story that offers both scares and the exploration of real-world issues.
Natalie and Ryan talk about what it’s like being horror-loving children, spooky racism, and what the editorial process is really like. This episode is a must-listen for any aspiring writers!
