Web Exclusive: Favorite of All His Books
Shauna Lake asks Richard Paul Evans what his favorite book that he's written is.
SHAUNA LAKE: I know it’s like picking your favorite child, but which one is your favorite? Which one is closest to your heart?
RICHARD PAUL EVANS: Well Christmas Box is first born. So that’s always going to be special. It’s usually whatever one I’m working on. I always try to make each book my favorite book, but they all have different meanings. Like my book Grace is the most autobiographical. It is about two young boys, they meet a girl who they keep in their clubhouse. I remember some people saying this is so unrealistic, you know two kids living without their parents involved. It’s like well actually that was my life. We had just moved to Utah. My parents were in dire straits, and we were on our own. So we just had our own society, our own culture.
