CROSS ROADS - Author William Paul Young joined us this morning to talk about his new book. He rose to fame with his book, The Shack, that sold 18 million copies and became an international bestseller. William Paul Young returns with his sophomore novel, Cross Roads. In 2009, William Paul Young was juggling three jobs. Each day he hauled himself and his troubles (financial worries that led to bankruptcy, guilt from an affair that strained his marriage, memories of three devastating family deaths) on the commuter train between his rental home in Gresham, Oregon and Portland. Sometimes he scribbled bits of dialogue on napkins and receipts to help ease his pain. Since then, Young has undergone a major reversal of fortune. The Shack, a novel he started in 2005 to explain to his six kids how he copied with tragedy, has become an astonishing hit selling 18 million copies and landing on the New York Times Best Seller list for 50 consecutive weeks as #1. Paul originally wrote it as a Christmas gift for his children and printed 15 copies at the local office supply store; it was never intended for broad publication. However, friends passed it to friends and eventually he teamed up with a couple of guys to print it and the rest is a publishing phenomenon.
