My guest today, Shaun David Hutchinson wanted to be a superhero when he was young, but as he could not be one of those he began to tell stories instead. One day when his mother had been taken to hospital with some heart problems, he was thinking about how he was so far away from her and what would he do if anything happened (something I know about too well this year). How he would not be able to say goodbye, when the thought came to him, that there should be some form of system, so that people could prepare for their death. From this acorn of an idea, that was nurtured by the voice of his character Ollie, came the mighty oak of his debut novel “THE DEATHDAY LETTER

During a hugely entertaining show, as well as discussing how being a member of the ”tenners” debut author group had helped him, we chatted about not only the theme of the book, but the wonderful characters that bring the pages to life.

THE DEATHDAY LETTER:

The clock is ticking… Ollie can’t be bothered to care about anything but girls until he gets his Deathday Letter and learns he’s going to die in twenty-four hours. Bummer. Ollie does what he does best: nothing. Then his best friend convinces him to live a little, and go after Ronnie, the girl who recently trampled his about-to-expire heart. Ollie turns to carloads of pudding and over-the-top declarations, but even playing the death card doesn’t work. All he wants is to set things right with the girl of his dreams. It’s now or never.

What would you do if you found you only had 24hrs to live, something that happens to believable; loveable and so true to life Ollie in the book, the off and on relationship with Ronnie and his mate Shane, make sure that his last 24hrs are ones that are enjoyed. While the book could be deep about the meaning of life etc, it is not though obviously there are undertones. It’s a a book full of humor, rollercoaster relationships, dynamic characters and a great plot.

Of course being 15 year old boys, Ollie and Shane thoughts revolve around sex, food, sex, girls, antimony and sex. It will bring back memories of high school, educate some girls into the inner working of a teenage boys mind and relate to teenage boys in so many ways.

This debut book has pretty much got the teenage boy persona down perfectly. Hilarious and heartbreaking at the same time, no wonder THE DEATHDAY LETTER has become one of the YA hits of 2010.

So sit back and listen to an entertaining thrity minutes as today I present “MYM A Book and a Chat with Shaun David Hutchinson”.

When my guest today told his grandmother he wanted to be a writer, in typical Jewish grandmother terms she replied, “Oh, so you want to starve?” Barry Lyga, despite that start has not only become an author, but a hugely popular YA author.

Anybody who can write terrific novel that go from revealing his on comic book geekdom, to the sexual abuse of a teen boy by a female teacher, to tackling censorship before going onto start another book with the lament about the female’s character menstrual cycle is somebody worth chatting to. And so it proved on a hugely interesting and entertaining MYM (male YA Author month) Book and a Chat with Barry Lyga.

Barry grow up with a deep love of comic books, his favorite Sandman receiving several mentions in his first book, “The Astonishing Adventures of Fan Boy and Goth Girl”.

Fan Boy and Goth Girl, is often said to be too autobiographical for his own good, the hero being a young comic book geek who meets the girl of his nightmares. Barry shared with us how the characters and events were woven from his own experiences, friends, even girls he admire, sometimes from afar. The bulling part he told us also came from an episode in his own life.

Booklist said about the book… sharply authentic….Fanboy’s whip-smart, often hilariously sarcastic voice skillfully captures a teenager’s growing self-awareness, and adds fresh, urgent perspective to age-old questions about how young people cope with bullying and their own feelings of helplessness, rage, and being misunderstood as they try to discover themselves

Many people wanted a follow up; instead Barry went a different direction… at the time… with his second book Boy Toy. A book about a teen boy being lead on, then sexually abused, by his attractive female teacher. A hard book for Barry to write he told us, more about Josh the hero facing up to the fact he was abused, and getting over his own guilt.

After that came “Hero-Type” a book Barry openly admits he wrote in anger, it is set in Brookdale once again, covering censorship, flag burning and patriotic believes.

Finally the sequel of “The Astonishing Adventures of Fan Boy and Goth Girl” did arrive with his next book “Goth Girl Rising” which had Kyra returning home from Maryland Mental Health Unit.


With further books following close behind including his first and by no means his last foray into younger readers material “Archvillian” which as we heard will be followed by several more based on the same character. Also a new YA book coming out in 2012 ”I Hunt killers” a slightly more heavy book, which already has a follow up in the pipeline.

Barry Lyga, far from “wanting to starve” has become a hugely popular writer with a string of books going to hit the stores over the next few years.

My male YA author guest on today’s “A Book and a Chat” is antipodean author William Kostakis, chatting to us about his debut book “Loathing Lola”.

William who will be finished with University in three days from now, had his first success as a writer when he won the the Sydney Morning Herald Young Writer of the Year for a story called “Bing Me”.

His novel “Loathing Lola” he began working on when he was 11 years old, and has since been refining it, sometimes, especially in the early days due to computer viruses and lack of backups, the whole story having to be re-written. He scored his first publishing contract at 17, while still completing his final year of high school.

Over the edits the book went from being written in third person to being written in first person in the voice of one of the female characters. As William shared with us in a fun and humorous program this was changing of person also removed much of the “ad lib” entries added by his own voice to the original edit, though as we learned as the show went on there are still a few of the satirical lines still to be found as you read through the book.

Loathing Lola:
As one of the bloggers(Persnickety Snark) reviewed about the book…

Fifteen-year-old Courtney Marlow didn’t exactly think it through. She thought the offer to have her life broadcast on national television was the perfect solution to her family’s financial troubles.

She was wrong.

Mackenzie Dahl, the show’s producer, promised to show Australia a real teenager. Courtney was going to be a positive role model, someone on television without a boob job and an eating disorder.

Soon, everyone wants their 15 minutes of fame via a little bit of Courtney – especially her conniving friend Katie, and her stepmother, Lola. And Courtney is just beginning to realize that ‘ordinary’ does not translate to ‘entertaining’…

People have said of the book…
extremely funny“, “highly entertaining“, and “a witty tale of trust, teenage friendship, school politics, family relationships and teenage love that is propelled by regular humor, satirical characters and loads of drama… a popular addition to the mid-teen market“.

Wirtten in the TV age, the style obviously suits itself to being made into a TV special, something I’d love to see, sort of an antidote to reality shows.
During the show William shared with us several funny anecdotes and events which I’m sure brought laughter to those listening. With that sense of humor and the wonderful style of writing, William’s next book I for one will be looking for.

So sit back and enjoy today’s Male YA Author “A Book and a Chat with William Kostakis“.

Week two of Male YA Author Month (MYM) kicks off with author of “Generation Dead” series “Daniel Waters”.

Born with a crayon in his hand, a young comic book creator, Daniel shared how he got the epiphany regarding writing when the weekly homework of putting the weekly spelling words into sentences, suddenly formed the puzzle of the story in his mind. so he wrote a story. The teacher and his class mates thought that was pretty cool, and it soon became almost a monthly serial, which even had the class bully asking what was going to happen next rather than his normal bully tactics.

From that early start Daniel commented how his work developed from comic strip entries to his first novel launched in 2008 “Generation Dead”. During the show we heard how the idea for Generation Dead, came to Daniel while channel surfing in a hotel. A news magazine program about violence in schools, where basically kids were engaging in random acts of violence just so they could be filmed and the clips put on YouTube.


After going through the thoughts of a almost series book about school life, Daniel hit on the wonderful Zombie inspired format of Generation Dead.

The first book of the series was soon followed by “Kiss of Life” and then this year “Passing Strange”. While there are more stories left in the “Generation Dead” locker, Daniel shared he’s going to have a break from his Zombie friends, who even have their own blog, which has more hits than his own.

About Generation Dead:

Generation Dead is a young adult supernatural romance novel. It follows a girl named Phoebe and her best friends, Margi and Adam. It follows a story in which the country is baffled by a strange phenomenon of dead teenagers not staying dead. Some of them die, and suddenly start walking around again a couple hours later. Phoebe finds herself attracted to Tommy Williams, one of the “living impaired” teens at Oakvale High School. Oakvale High has attracted several living impaired kids from throughout the country because of the larger ratio of living impaired kids to living kids…

As Daniel shared all the characters seem to have their own fans, he even heard from readers who were dressing up as some of the characters for Halloween.

So sit back and enjoy today’s Male YA Author “A Book and a Chat with Daniel Waters“, after all as Daniel says… “YA fiction is the new Rock and Roll

Today’s Male YA Author requested by the bloggers to appear on my “A Book and a Chat” during this special month of shows is Jay Asher, author of the hugely popular novel “Th1rteen R3asons Why“.

JAY has worked at an independent bookstore, an outlet bookstore, a chain bookstore, and two public libraries. He hopes, someday, to work for a used bookstore.

Writing has always been part of his life that and playing the guitar, his first book he wrote during a Children’s Lit Appreciation class was a picture book called “Stop, Easter Bunny! You Forgot Something”. The book never sold, but with Jay and his wife expecting their first baby, he is once more looking at picture books, and with a title like that it could well be back on the market.

As a debut YA author Jay was part of the “Class of 2k7” the first of the debut YA authors groups that have helped many great YA authors on their debut year plenty of whom have appeared on my show.

His debut novel “Thirteen Reason Why” was started to be written in late 2003 making its appearance in 2007. The book won several awards along the way to publication, and it was interesting to hear how it even went to a “publisher auction, before being picked up by Razorbill/Penguin.

About Thirteen Reasons Why:

It’s about a high school junior, Clay Jensen, who comes home and finds a package on his doorstep. Inside are seven audiotapes, their sides labeled one through thirteen. He finds a tape player, pops in the first tape, presses play, and out comes the voice of Hannah Baker…his classmate and crush who, two weeks earlier, committed suicide. Each side of each tape tells a story about a different person at their school who, Hannah feels, led to her decision. And since Clay received the tapes, he’s one of the reasons why.

Jay shared how he originally got the idea after taking an audio tour at a museum several years ago, and I felt that would make for a fascinating way to format a novel: someone’s recorded voice leading another person on a journey through their town.

He wrote the book in two separate parts after struggling to write in two voices. Firstly creating Hannah tape messages, then after a break, writing Clay’s responses and thoughts and what he heard on the tapes.

One of the things that many have picked up on, indeed there are actually pages of them on the internet are quotes from Hannah’s tapes, rather “Quotes from Jay Asher
During the show Jay explained how some of the better known ones are used not just in the book but the phrase “Everything… affects everything” is one he used when signing books. One of my own favorite is “in the end… everything matters

Jay went on to give us an incite into his next book which is nearly finished and should be out towards the end of next year.

So sit back and enjoy today’s Male YA Author “A Book and a Chat with Jay Asher“.

To start MYM (Male YA Month) on a Book and a Chat I was very glad to hand over the host of the show to the one and only Heidi R Kling, author of the very popular 2010 YA book “SEA“.

Fighting the threat of erupting children, something I myself know about, Heidi still managed to lead the show through various questions about my book “Across the Pond” my short romance stories at http://romance2read.com and why I am running the “Male YA Author Month”.

We chatted about why the month event was set up, following a challenge from YA Auhtor Alexander Diaz (Stupid Things), and how I went about getting a list of possible authors from bloggers, then contacting the authors to see if they were interested in being on the radio show.

I went through the guest we have receiving several oo’s and aa’s from those listening in the chat room, where it seemed many of the guests were indeed popular.


I even had time to ask Heidi herself what she was working on and producing after the success of “SEA”.

The end of the show was a revise of the MYM calendar of guests, a couple of anecdotes about England, and I even managed to answer a question about some of my favorite English saying/language issues.
