Interview with Fantasy author Brandon Sanderson

Brandon Sanderson is one of the most prolific writers in Sci-Fi/Fantasy, and consistently delivers fresh stories that expand the genre in new and exciting ways.  With over 20 million books sold, Brandon is one of the most beloved authors publishing today.

Brandon and I talked about how his eighth grade teacher Mrs. Reader, gave him Dragonsbane by Barbara Hambly and how this (cliches aside) changed his life. We chatted about how his two year missionary journey to Korea informed his later writing, why fantasy resonates with people in emotionally powerful ways, and much more.

I'm Hank and I'm a writer. I write stories about life, but with a supernatural twist. I love the art of writing so much that I started a podcast called Author Stories.
I'd love to hear from you.
