Who writes about our fun and terrifying adventures? Dan Cappello! I got to ask him a few questions about what it’s like turning our adventures into totally cool books.
How long have you been a writer?
I’ve been a professional writer for a long time. But this is my first time as a writer of books. I used to write newspaper and magazine articles, and fun words for advertisements.
Why do you write books?
I write because I LOVE to tell spine-chilling, goosebump-giving, sleep-with-your-night-light on kind of stories. And you guys have the BEST and SCARIEST stories to tell.
Well thank you! I wouldn’t say I always like being chased by a ghost, demon, or monster, but I’m happy they make great stories!
They do. They do.
So you like to write about us because of all the scary stuff we see?
Yes and no. You guys have seen some scary stuff. I don’t know how you guys do it. But what I love about the S.P.I.R.I.T. kids is how well you guys work together to solve all your mysteries. Friendship and teamwork are great, and your readers should see just how great it is.
Okay. Last question. What scares you the most?
Oooo. Good question. I’m scared of really small spaces. Where you feel like the walls are closing in on you and you’re trapped. That’s what scares me.
