Comments Off on Comic Book Hero Gene Luen Yang – This Creative Life ep 11

In this edition of This Creative Life, hear about my plan to start all over in life with a new identity! But seriously folks! I hope you enjoy my conversation with Gene Luen Yang as much as I did. He’s a National Book Award finalist, Printz winner, two-time Eisner Award winner, and all-around terrific person. We did talk a bit about midlife, the deceptive appeal of a life with no commitments, balancing a day job with his creative work, and the difference between the pain of writing vs. the pain of not writing. Also a lot of other stuff. (Like outlining and Frito Scoops.)

Buy Online

By special arrangement with my local independent book store, The King’s English, you can always find signed copies of my novels there.

If you’re not local, you can order signed copies from them and have them shipped and, if you like, gift wrapped. Also, if you’d like me to personalize a signed copy, we can make that happen.

And, of course, anywhere books are sold.
