Author TJ Klune joins us to talk about "Flash Fire," the sequel to his YA superhero story "The Extraordinaries." TJ discusses the new characters, how Nick has to deal with changing perceptions about his father, and the importance of queer history and sex positivity within the book. He also talks about "Under the Whispering Door," the second book in what he calls his Unofficial Kindness Trilogy. Here the conversation shifts to look at writing a book about grief that is also infused with kindness and humor.
TJ also provides some hints about next year's "Tales from Verania" sequel and book three of "Extraordinaries." Plus he recommends some books that he thinks everyone should have on their reading list.
