The Daily Quirk was thrilled to have the opportunity to speak with James Dashner, best-selling author of the wildly popular The Maze Runner series, at this year’s New York Comic-Con. A self-proclaimed movie nut, Dashner tells us that his successful book franchise making the big transition from the page to the big screen is “the highlight of his career.” In addition to insight into the new film and its sequels to come, the Dashner also opened up about his writing process and current works in progress, specifically The Morality Doctrine series. Dashner proves that his amazing success has not caused him to stray from a humble nature (he confided that in the world of the maze, he probably would have strayed from heroics and been a slopper) and offers words of advice to all aspiring writers out there. For all of this and more, check out the video below!
