J.R. Robinson is the author of Theodore Roberts & the Key to the Imaginary Door. This novel tells the story of the titular character’s dilemma of whether or not to hold on to his imagination when growing up. The author says imagination is scarce in today’s society.

“Now it seems that our children are needing to cast away childhood things faster, such as belief in magic in general” says Robinson, adding that such whimsy often leads to unfair criticism from their peers and parents.

“Where does your imagination go as you grow up?” Derrell asks.

“Unfortunately it dies away at the beginning of adulthood. We have a lot of responsibilities and a lot of stress,” Robinson answers.
