My brother, illustrator Will Reber, and I were invited by the Vermont Studio Center to sit down for a conversation about collaboration on VSC’s Six Feet Apart virtual video series. We talk about working as a writer-artist sibling team, our long-distance “ping-pong” approach to collaboration, and our current book Rumlands. You can watch the video here (via YouTube) or over on Instagram.
For anyone who’s curious what I’m writing these days, and why it involves airplanes and giant mushrooms, you can hear a sample of it as part of the Vermont Studio Center‘s Virtual Voices Reading Series! The sample is the first half of “The Legend of the Snapper Squadron”, a chapter from Rumlands, my YA novel in progress. Unfortunately you can’t hear the art here, but the book (and in particular this story) is gloriously illustrated by William Reber.
