Funke interview

Tracy Grant interviews Cornelia Funke for the Washington Post today.

Funke talks about her last name ("My name is pronounced FOON-ka, but I don't mind when people call me funky"), how she writes (always in German first), and answers the question "Have you thought about writing a sequel to "Dragon Rider"?

Her answer?
  • "So many children ask me that question. I'm really thinking about it because they are all so passionate about that book. I'll try."

Funke also discusses her favorite characters and the sequel to Inkheart and Inspell, the forthcoming Inkdeath.
