BookHounds invited David LaRochelle, author of Monster & Son, to our “studio” for an interview. Monster & Son was released on April 12, 2016 and we love it.
We were so excited to have him read his book (with permission from Chronicle Books) and talk what it’s like to be an author. We also chatted about great books! His newest book was just released in December 2018 , The Isle of You.
