Friends of the Festival
Paul Mosier began writing novels in 2011, but has written in some fashion his entire life. He lives a short walk from the place of his birth in downtown Phoenix, Arizona, but it has been a very circuitous route that brought him there. He is married and is father to two lovely daughters who both read fanatically. He loves listening to baseball on the radio, eating vegetarian food, drinking coffee, and talking nonstop. His middle-grade debut novel, "Train I Ride," has earned starred reviews from Publishers Weekly, Booklist and Kirkus, is a Junior Library Guild Selection and earned him a Publishers Weekly "Flying Start" designation. His second middle-grade novel from HarperCollins, "Echo's Sister," will be released August 7, 2018. A third novel from HarperCollins- "Summer and July"- is scheduled for release in summer 2019.
