First Draft with Sarah Enni

Join me as I talk to D.J. MacHale, author of dozens of middle grade novels, including THE CURSE OF THE BOGGIN, first book in his new series THE LIBRARY, out now! DJ also created and wrote the Nickelodeon series ARE YOU AFRAID OF THE DARK? He talks about writing and starring in a 90-minute original Marx Brothers movie, outlining 10 books in a week, and taking critique from his mother.
