Interview from the archives with New Hampshire writer Toby Ball, about his first novel, The Vaults, published by St. Martin's Press. He has since published another novel, Scorch City, also published by St. Martin's.

Toby Ball's novels take place in the same unnamed dystopian city, though during different time periods. This week's Write the Book Prompt is to try your hand at writing a story, poem, or scene that has to do with a dystopian community. You can read more about what a dystopian society might encompass on Wikipedia.

Good luck with this prompt and please listen next week for another.

Excerpt of The Vaults read with permission from St. Martin's Press, a division of MacMillan.
