Steven Banks, author of the MIDDLE SCHOOL BITES Series, and tv writer for shows like Spongebob, talks about his writing process with his Holiday House Editor Sally Morgridge. The two chat about topics ranging from the difference between writing books versus tv scripts, his experience writing for shows like Spongebob, The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron, and CatDog, to why monsters were the perfect way to dive into the real-life horror that is Middle School.

MIDDLE SCHOOL BITES tells the story of eleven-year-old Tom, who gets bitten by a vampire, a werewolf, and a zombie, right before the first day of school. As you can imagine, it’s not easy being the only Vam-Wolf-Zom known to humankind.

Middle School Bites is available wherever books are sold. The sequel, Middle School Bites: Tom Bites Back, will be released September 8th, 2020. Follow @vamwolfzom on Twitter and @middleschoolbites on Instagram for updates on the Series.
