DC Pierson is busy. His Alex Award-winning first novel, The Boy Who Couldn’t Sleep and Never Had To, is now being made into a movie. He’s part of an acclaimed improv team called Derrick Comedy which performs regularly at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater in Los Angeles, and with whom he made a 2009 movie called Mystery Team that was featured at Sundance. And he’s only 27!
Pierson joined us as a National Juror in the Humor category for the 2012 Scholastic Art & Writing Awards; earlier this year, blogger Brendan Bourque-Sheil interviewed Pierson about his writing process. Check out an excerpt of the interview below! We’re positive that he’ll get you to Start.Write.Now!
