Dan Wells is the author of I am Not a Serial Killer and the recently released Mr. Monster. He likes to begin his readings with: "I am not a serial killer. My book is an autobiography." His protagonist, John Wayne Cleaver, is a fascinating teenager who has his own issues to deal with, but when there's a serial killer on the loose, John pushes these thoughts aside and does what he does best: gets into the mind of a cold-hearted murderer.

In the interview, Wells talks about how he got started writing, where he got the idea for John Wayne Cleaver, how many other books there will be, and a little on what else he's working on. You'll find out the unusual location of his everyday writing office and what hobbies he likes to get up to in his free time.
