“We feel great,” he said. “It happened very early, like late March, early April. We were doing our best before, and I thought I had the flu, and I didn’t want to be paranoid about it.

His new book, The Magic Misfits: The Fourth Suit, is the fourth in his young adult series centering around a kid magician. If you’re in the market for a YA magic series without a transphobic author, your search ends here.
