Louie (rmutt1914) | 885 comments In the comics, Nadia, like her father, struggles with her mental health. Is that something the novel addresses? If so, what were the challenges depicting that struggle in a YA novel?

Richard Vogel | 234 comments Which medium (books, comics, video games) was the most difficult to write in and why? Which is her favorite?

When writing in the well established world of Spider-Man, the story worked well for a video game structure and was original. Considering the existing current media of Marvel Spider-Man movies and the excellent Into the Spider-Verse, what was the process to create a new story the was different and interesting from the previous and current works?

Adding one more question for my daughter. Simply, how did you break into the comic business?

Chris (chrisliterati) | 5 comments Hi! New to the group and I got so exited because I worked with Sam Maggs on this book (hi Sam, Chris C!). My question is: if you could do the same treatment for any other marvel superheroes, who would you want to write?
Thanks so much!

Jan | 440 comments Bzzzzz, I am probably way too late (damn you, life!) but I do have a question:

You have written in many areas and have vast experience with all kinds of different stories, I am wondering what the main difference is in writing a comic book, game content and novels regarding the development of the story and the characters? Any tv or movie scripts you would like to write?

Mark (markmtz) | 2495 comments You've told us the backstory of Enterprise crew member Yeoman Leslie Thompson. Are there any other Star Trek tales you'd like to tell?
