Brandon Mull, author of the ever popular children’s series Fablehaven, visited East Meadows Elementary. He talked with kids about coming up with ideas for writing books. He said he has always had an imagination. He just started writing down the stories that were in his head and asking people to read them. Brandon has always been a fan of fantasy. His writings have been inspired by The Chronicles of Narnia, The Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter. He gave the students some tips for young writers. He told them to read a lot, write a lot, observe things around them and to ask people to read their writing and give them feedback. Brandon is a graduate of Brigham Young University. Other books by Brandon Mull are: Pingo, The Candyshop Wars, and the new series Beyonders. He says the new Beyonders series is his favorite thus far.
