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!
