What is your latest release and what genre is it? Aarial would be considered young adult fantasy, but the story alternates between reality and fantasy, so it is not pure fantasy.

Quick description: Dylan is an unruly, troubled boy who has been in and out of group homes his entire life. With every new home, comes a new school and new challenges. To escape the misery of his life, Dylan enters into a world where he is in control of his destiny and able to make decisions for himself. The ancient power of Aarial connects Dylan to his environment and guides him on a cryptic quest.

Dylan walks a fine line between reality and fantasy, between rejection and acceptance. What is the true path for a boy without a sense of place? Enter Dylan’s world and follow him on his search for truth and identity.

What are you working on now?
At this time, I am not working on one thing in particular. I have many ideas that are developing, but I have not committed to one story at this time.

Collin’s reading recommendation:
I like to know what my students are reading, so I often ask them for their suggestions. The latest recommendation was The Fault in Our Stars, by John Green. I strongly recommend it to all age groups. A good story is a good story and it doesn’t matter if the intended audience is Young Adult. Another book I strongly recommend is The Spectacular Now, by Tim Tharp. These are both great coming-of-age novels involving young people trying to find their way in a complicated world.
