The author Neil Gaiman has always wanted to be a writer. As a child, he wanted to be the author of great books, but not just any books: he wanted to be the author of The Lord of the Rings. Those books were already penned, so, as an adult, he wrote his own great works of fable and fantasy, books like Coraline, American Gods, and Sandman. Monday, we're airing a conversation we had with Neil Gaiman over the weekend. We talked with him about his passion for storytelling, about where he gets his ideas, and about beekeeping.
Doug interviewed Neil Gaiman at the Eccles Center for the Performing Arts in Park City. The event was hosted by the Park City Institute.
Neil Gaiman is the author of many books, including Coraline, American Gods, Sandman, and Good Omens, which he co-authored with the late Terry Pratchett. His newest book is Trigger Warning: Short Fictions and Disturbances [Amazon|Indiebound].
