Katherine Applegate thinks writing is “the best job on the planet,” although “it’s not as easy as it looks.” Her many books include the Newbery Medal-winning “The One and Only Ivan,” as well as “Crenshaw,” “Home of the Brave,” the “Roscoe Riley Rules” series and, with her husband, Michael Grant, the “Animorphs” series, which has sold more than 35 million copies worldwide. Her new book is “Endling: The Last” (HarperCollins).
