YA Fest: How/why did you start writing?
Tom: I started writing because of a challenge from my 7th grade English teacher.  For her class, my friend and I wrote a play based on Where the Red Fern Grows and performed it for the class.  Later, our teacher challenged us to write a book.  We started writing and I never stopped.

YA Fest: One piece of advice for young writers?
Tom: Write for yourself.  Write what inspires you and what you enjoy.  The rest will follow.
YA Fest: What are you currently working on?  (Give us your elevator pitch!)
Tom: JerichoJericho isn’t a story about a dystopian society.  It’s about the events designed to create one and the teens that are destined to prevent it.  
YA Fest: Are you characters/stories inspired by real people/events?
Tom: I’d say most of my characters end up with qualities from people I know but they aren’t based solely on one person.
