We had the pleasure of interviewing Devduth Menon. Here are the excerpts from the interview. 

Hi Devduth, Great to have you with us today! Please share with our readers about yourself.

Hi, I am an 11-year-old boy living in the state of Virginia. I started to get interested in writing in my 4th grade at Colonial Trail Elementary School after doing a few writing prompts. Those prompts gave me the boost I needed to start writing The European Shard. My interests other than writing would be art, crafts, and other creative activities. My favorite author is J.K. Rowling. I always admired her way of writing and wanted to be a terrific author like her. Besides Harry Potter, I also like other books. Aru Shah by Roshani Chokshi, Percy Jackson by Rick Riordan, Ranger’s Apprentice by John Flanagan, and Magnus Chase by Rick Riordan are some books I truly love. I also have a little sister. I live with her, my dad, and my mom.
