David Metzenthen on writing, YA literature and Jarvis 24

The 2 videos below are of a David Metzenthen interview (2009) where he discusses writing, his way of writing for young adults and also Jarvis 24, one of the 2010 CBCA short listed books. David answers questions about his approach to writing very honestly and thoughtfully. 

There is also a very readable review of Jarvis 24 on the Fiction Focus (CMIS) blog
