Thank you, Author Mary Waibel for the introduction! This is a really new introduction for both of us, so I haven't had a chance to read your book, Jason and the Draconauts yet, but let me say it looks like a lot of fun. I look forward to reading it, I'm a big dragon fan.
Since I'm getting to know you at the same time as my readers, I thought I'd ask a few fun questions. Are you game? What books did you love to read the most as a kid? What captivated you? I was a HUGE reader of comic books, actually, and a big collector into my late teens.
Jason and the Draconauts
It wasn't just the costumes and super powers that captivated me, but their heroism and selflessness as well. However, I read novels too. The ones that were really big for me were the Lord of the Rings trilogy and the Hobbit. Have you ever had an odd adventure that surprised you as much as Jason's discovery surprised him? Actually, quite recently, I took my kids to Disney World for the first time. I was all prepared to put on a brave face for the kids but secretly be hating the whole experience.
It turned out, I really loved it and had a great time! The magic holds true for all ages.

What do you love the most about the kind of story you tell? I really enjoy writing the dialogue and the humorous scenes. I work really hard to capture realism in my dialogue. I also enjoy the cliffhanger, which annoys some people who read my work. I think that rush that comes from thinking, "Are you kidding me?!?

I hate being sniffed long story for another blog post I once lost my car in a parking garage. I often drive on "auto pilot" and sometimes end up in places I had no intention of going. What inspires you the most? Why do you write? The action of creating is so awesome; birthing something from your imagination that can jump start the imagination of other is such a fantastic and humbling process. My kids inspire me as well; I want to show them that art and expression are so much better than video games and TV even thought those are cool too.
Great interview. My nephew would have loved seeing you in the Dr. Who costume. And the Hobbit is priceless! Thanks so much for stopping by, Paul. It's been fun getting to know you a little better. Be sure to check out Paul's book and read an excerpt below. A live dinosaur would be more believable; at least dinosaurs once roamed the land which is now the Hewes Montana farm. Jason has just discovered a creature out of legend; a beast which all logic tells him should not—could not—exist. Some kids might run.

Others might scream or faint. Instead, Jason befriends the ancient creature, and in doing so learns an entire mythic species is emerging from a centuries-long slumber. A powerful and long-forgotten evil is watching his newly-revived enemies closely. Jason and the Draconauts is officially here!!! I completely loved this debut young adult novel by Paul Smith. Filled with top-notch fantasy and adventure, Jason and the Draconauts is sure to please Paul Smith lives in upstate New York with his wife and two sons, where he works with emotionally disturbed and mentally ill children.
