David Farland

David Farland has published over forty fantasy and science fiction novels for both adults and younger readers, including The Wyrmling Horde, the seventh volume in the Runelords series.

From his Q & A with Willamette Week:

What authors made you want to pick up a pen in the first place?

William Shakespeare and J.R.R. Tolkien.

Fight Club time: If you could fight one author (or critic), who would it be and why?

Gosh, I don’t want to fight anyone that I can think of. I’ll just crush them with my prose.

Name a book that you think is highly overrated. Be honest:

The Grapes of Wrath.
Read the complete exchange.
