Nate Wilson: Storytelling and ‘the Aroma of the Gospel’

As part of our continuing series on the concept of calling, we present Warren Cole Smith’s interview with the bestselling author of young adult fantasy fiction, Nate Wilson. Wilson talks about the importance of good storytelling, how young people can develop as writers, and what Wilson calls “the aroma of the Gospel” that he tries to incorporate in each story.

The interview was conducted at a recent Great Homeschool Convention.
