Video:Exclusive Interview with Tomi Adeyemi, Author of "Children of Blood and Bone"


I think we just all love good stories. I think, especially if you come into a place like Comic-Con, you see every type of person, you see every age, and when the story is good, it doesn’t’ matter where you’re from. Because at the end, we’re all humans, which sounds very kumbayah, but it’s just true. If you can tell a very human story, people are going to connect with that. If you can tell a human story with like really cool magic, then people are going to connect with that and really love it. And that’s why we have a whole generation named after Harry Potter. I think that’s really what it does – it’s very human, and that’s what I always try to do, too, because when I’m reading a book – I actually have a very short attention span and I’m a slow reader, so I know I have to feel like I’m really in it and really connected and so I try and write for that person.

Yes, you’re going to have a lot of magic and you’re going to have a lot of complicated stuff, but you don’t even need to see most of that stuff. And I hate reading about it, so I’m not going to tell you about it until you absolutely need to know. It’s this big fantasy, but it’s not so up its own butt with being a fantasy. It’s still a very human story. It just happens to take place with really cool magic and giant lions. ~ Tomi Adeyemi, Bestselling author of the children's fantasy novel, Children of Blood and Bone. The novel was an instant #1 on The New York Times Bestsellers List for Young Adult Books.
"Children of Blood and Bone" has been acquired for film adaptation by Fox 2000 and Temple Hill Productions in the United States of America (USA).
