Today, I have a guest, Stephen Schneider, and we will be discussing his middle grade fiction and a few other topics.

Stephen writes as S. A. Schneider, and he is a purveyor of fantasy and a travel guide for kids to explore the many worlds found in books. Anyone who has a wolf should be a writer of fantasy, right? Enjoy the adventure.
