BBB: What inspired you to become a writer?

JD: I’ve always been fascinated by storytelling. My dad is a natural storyteller, and ever since I was a boy, I loved hearing his stories about “the old days.” When I was just four or five years old, I discovered a black-and-white TV show called Space Patrol, and I was instantly hooked on science fiction. When I started elementary school, I looked for time travel and space travel books in the school library. There wasn’t much, but I did discover a book called A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’Engle. When I read that book, I knew I wanted to write stories about adventures on other worlds. That’s what really lit my fire to write.
