OK, so I didn't get to interview him in person as I had to work, but thanks to Sean at Walker Books, Patrick Ness answered all my questions and they videoed it for me, so that I could share it with you. So here you are, Patrick Ness answering questions about his latest novel, The Rest Of Us Just Live Here, as well as questions about the filming of A Monster Calls. Stick around until the end of the post, because there might just be a giveaway!
As many of you will know, Patrick Ness has created a storm this week, by setting up a fundraising page for the Syrian refugees. On writing this post, the total raised was nearly £400,000. I would imagine on posting this, it has seriously surpassed that figure.
If you would like to make a donation to help the refugees, then please click here. Every little helps.
What if you aren’t the Chosen One?
The one who’s supposed to fight the zombies, or the soul-eating ghosts, or whatever the heck this new thing is, with the blue lights and the death?
What if you’re like Mikey? Who just wants to graduate and go to prom and maybe finally work up the courage to ask Henna out before someone goes and blows up the high school. Again.
Because sometimes there are problems bigger than this week’s end of the world, and sometimes you just have to find the extraordinary in your ordinary life.
