Skinny Dip with Will Hobbs

Never Say Die coverWhat animal are you most like?

Sea turtle.

Which book of yours was the most difficult to write or illustrate?

Bearstone, my first book, had six drafts written over an 8-year period. It even had several different titles, including Pride of the West. When I wrote the sixth draft I knew it was a quantum leap.

Which of your books would make a good movie and who would be the star?

Crossing coverI’d love to see a movie of Crossing the Wire. The star would be an unknown Mexican teenager. Are you listening, Hollywood?

What’s your favorite line from a book?

The last line of Johnny Raven’s letter in Far North: “Take care of the land, take care of yourself, take care of each other.”

What book do you tell everyone to read?

The Wind in the Willows. Mr. Toad is one of my all-time favorite literary characters.

    Great to see this skinny dip with Will. We got to know each other years ago when I spent a few months in Durango. His books always capture the spirit of the West. I’ll look for the new novel!
