Winner of the Mystery Writers of America’s Edgar Award for Juvenile Fiction, James Ponti told an Orlando Sentinel reporter, “I’m happy in this world of books. I love the librarians, the teachers, and the kids.”

In this live edition of Meet the Author, he discusses his segue from writing for television to writing young adult fiction. Ponti talks about his Framed! book series as well as the Dead City trilogy. During the webcast, students from Glasgow Middle School ask thoughtful questions via Skype, and Twain Middle School students talk about the ingredients of a good mystery.
