Author Interview Cross Roads Tour


I’m hosting an interview today with Donald Wilson II, author of YA urban fantasy / adventure “Cross Roads”. I hope you enjoy the interview.

1) How long have you been writing?

I’ve been writing since I was 8 years old. I created a graphic novel that wasn’t really good, but I kept at it. I’ve been writing ever since.

2) Is Cross Roads your first book? If not, please tell us a little about your first book.

Cross Roads is my debut novel and the first novel I’ve published but I have other works that I’ve created but never attempted to publish. They were for my own benefit.

3) Why did you choose YA as genre to write?

It’s actually one of my favorite genres because it’s so imaginative. It’s an under appreciated genre but has so much potential. I feel like many readers enjoy YA just for those reasons. I know I do.

4) Do you have any advice for aspiring authors?

Be persistent, keep writing and edit your work with a professional. Editing is my least favorite part of the process, but working with an editor who understands the process and is easy to work with really helped me.

Do you have any works in progress you’d like to tell us about?

I’m currently working on the Cross Roads sequel. I can’t tell you much because I’m smack in the middle of it, but I can tell you that it has more action than the previous book. Yes, MORE action!
