LAST KID RUNNING _____ I'm a featured speaker at the 2nd Annual Interactive Fiction Creator’s Conference, will be talking about the creative process behind Welcome to the Scramble

This is the Chromebook I used to develop most of the
LAST KID RUNNING interactive fiction series.
Thrilled to let you all know that the Second Annual Interactive Fiction Creator’s Conference is happening this weekend, details here and register here.

I'm a featured speaker on the first day, 2pm Eastern time, and I'll be sharing a quick guide to writing your own interactive thrillers, with some examples from my experience creating the LAST KID RUNNING interactive fiction series that's published by Penguin Random House. I'll also give a quick overview of how I used the open source IF software Twine as one of my writing tools.
