KUSA - Colorado author T.A. Barron is a rockstar in the world of young adult literature. On 9NEWS 8 a.m. he talked to us about his newest novel, "Atlantis Rising."
Barron is the award-winning author of fantasy novels such as "The Lost Years of Merlin" epic--soon to be a major motion picture.
In this book, Barron creates a new fantasy world about the origins of Atlantis, suited for fans of The Lord of the Rings, Eragon, The Beyonders and Percy Jackson and the Olympians.
"Gaps in mythic lore always intrigue me," Barron explains. "That was true for the lost years of Merlin's youth-and now for the origins of Atlantis. Why do those gaps call to me? Not only because of the unspoken possibilities ... but because I wonder why there's a gap at all. What really happened?"
