My guest on this week’s podcast is novelist Melissa De La Cruz. Melissa is the #1 New York Times, #1 Publisher’s Weekly and #1 Indie Bound bestselling author of many critically acclaimed and award-winning novels for readers of all ages.



Her books have also topped the USA Today, Wall Street Journal and Los Angeles Times bestseller lists, and have been published in over twenty countries.

Melissa’s the author of the Blue Bloods series, the Beach Lane series, the Ashleys Project series, the Heart of Dread series and the semi-autobiographical novel Fresh off the Boat.

She is ALSO the author of The Isle of the Lost, the prequel to the Disney Channel Original Movie Descendants. That book spent thirty-seven weeks on the New York Times bestseller list, fifteen at #1 and has over a million copies in print! Melissa is also the author of its sequel, Return to the Isle of the Lost.

We talk about:

  • what her writing process looks like
  • how she approached writing the prequel for a movie that was already in production
  • advice for would-be writers
  • her new novel
  • and much more
