Thursday Twitter Takeover: Glen Zipper and Elaine Mongeon

Each week, an accomplished published author takes over the YEM Twitter account for Thursday’s Twitter Takeover. Each week, the YA author will answer questions, tell stories, and give advice on our social media. This week authors Glen Zipper and Elaine Mongeon will be taking over our Twitter account.

From award-winning filmmakers Glen Zipper — known for creating the wildly popular Netflix series Dogs and producing such films as the Academy Award winning Undefeated and the critically acclaimed Showbiz Kids directed by Alex Winter (Bill & Ted Face The Music), currently streaming on HBO, and Elaine Mongeon — associate producer on notable films and series such as Magic Mike XXL and Red Oaks and the director of cult short horror films for Warner Bros. and Hulu — comes the incredible new novel Devastation Class (HarperCollins/Blink, Hardcover, $18.99, September 8, 2020).
When Zipper and Mongeon first met, the two bonded over their love of all things sci-fi, and films like Star WarsAlien and The Last Starfighter. Finding inspiration in their shared creative passions, it wasn’t long before they began working on their own science fiction novel, Devastation Class, having an eye toward an adaptation for film.
With pulse-pounding action, mind-bending twists, and mysterious Easter eggs hidden throughout, the novel and the forthcoming sequels of the Devastation Class trilogy should no doubt delight fans of the genre.
Set in the distant future, seven cadets must stage a mutiny aboard a revolutionary starship when the mysterious Kastazi — a vicious and highly advanced alien race — threatens to invade again after a nine-year siege.
