Tad Williams and Deborah Beale on The Dragons of Ordinary Farm

   (Tad Williams and Deborah Beale on the farm, looking at dragons?)

This summer NYT Bestselling author Tad Williams teamed up with his wife, Deborah Beale, for The Dragons of Ordinary Farm, a wonderful fantasy novel aimed at ages 9 to 12. Tyler and Lucinda, sent to the farm of a distant relative, discover--to both their delight and sometimes their horror--that the farm is not “ordinary” at all. In fact, great-uncle Gideon has a menagerie of all manner of fantastical creatures. What else does the farm hide, and how could a vacation suddenly be full of all sorts of peril? This first volume supplies the solutions to some mysteries, while making readers anxious to read the second of a planned five-book series. Perfect summer reading for kids of all ages.

Deborah and Tad were kind enough to take time out of their busy schedules to answer a few questions for Omnivoracious about their collaboration...

What a lovely interview! It's great to see collaborators who not only communicate well with the questioner, but who, also, enjoy a spirited relationship with one another even while engaged in this wonderful dialogue. Humanity shines through as does kindness, interest in craft and, most of all, warm concern for the 'children of all ages' for whom their series is intended. Bravo.
