Teen Fanclub Ep. 2: Colin Meloy & Carson Ellis Talk ‘Flowers in the Attic’

On the second episode of TIDAL’s new young adult fiction-themed podcast, Teen Fanclub, I chatted with author Colin Meloy of the Decemberists and his wife, award-winning artist Carson Ellis.

Meloy and Ellis have been working together since their college days, Ellis creating much of the fanciful visual identity for Meloy’s various bands, the Decemberists included. They have also collaborated on several books, including the popular Wildwood¬†fantasy series.

To celebrate the release of Meloy’s newest album, I’ll Be Your Girl (with art designed by Ellis, of course) the pair stopped by Teen Fanclub to discuss working together, childhood literary obsessions and what exactly they deem children’s literature (spoiler: Stephen King’s IT is not exactly for kids…).
