The Elementia Chronicles: Teenage author is Minecraft star

The virtual world of Minecraft is one that many children get lost in for hours on end - but now it's coming to life in a series of books.

The Elementia Chronicles use the computer game as a backdrop for a story about resources and conflicts that arise over them.

The trilogy is written by Sean Fay Wolfe, an 18-year-old freshman at the University of Rhode Island.

He spoke to the BBC from a book store where his second book is about to be released.
