David Macinnis Gill Celebrates Teen Read Week

October 18-24 is Teen Read Week! Sponsored by YALSA, this year's theme is Read Beyond Reality @ your library, which encourages teens to read something out of this world, just for the fun of it.

Here are a few "beyond reality" musings from YA Author David Macinnis Gill:

What is the strangest thing you have ever seen?

A snake with two heads--and it was alive!

Have you ever encountered a ghost?


No, sadly, I never have, although I've tried a few times.

UFO?

I thought I had, but it turned out to be a weather balloon.

Other?


Do relatives count?

You wish you could:

Stop time and bend space.

Which Beyond Reality character would you want to have dinner with?


Dracula. He doesn't drink wine, so I could have his.

Where would you go? What would you eat?


We would go to a salad bar. I wouldn't want a rare steak to whet his appetite.

In ten words or less, what is the most "Beyond Reality" thing in your newest book?

The cranky demon who repossesses both cars and souls.

David Macinnis Gill is the author of the debut novel, Soul Enchilada, from Greenwillow/Harper Collins. His short stories have appeared in several magazines, including The Crescent Review and Writer’s Forum. His critical biography of young adult author Graham Salisbury, Graham Salisbury: Island Boy, was published by Scarecrow Press. He holds a bachelor’s degree in English/creative writing and a doctorate in education, both from the University of Tennessee. You can learn more about David and his writing at http://davidmacinnisgill.com/

Thanks, David!

Your turn--what amazing thing do you wish YOU could do?
