Talking with James Patterson on 'Witch & Wizard' (AUDIO)

He is the most powerful author of our time and outsells Dan Brown, Stephen King and even Stephanie Meyer, combined. His name is James Patterson and although you may not be familiar with his name, you are definitely familiar with his Alex Cross titles. From Kiss the Spider to his latest bestselling novel,
Witch & Wizard: The Gift, Patterson couldn't miss if he tried.

Speaking with Mr. Patterson is like having a Master Class with one of the greatest living storytellers and a real privilege for any writer. I urge any writers to listen carefully to what he has to say on today's show: his journey to success, how he goes about creating some of his bestselling novels, his passion for getting kids excited about reading again and so much more.
