LEGO: A Love Story

...but once I'd read the book, I couldn't help but shake the feeling that he maybe wasn't all that invested in the hobby - and that either he was a journalist who came up with a great idea for a book and got caught up in the topic whilst he was researching it, or it was a new hobby to him and he went all guns blazing at it (like most people do) and once the book was done and dusted, he lost interest.
I just wondered if he was still out there in the Lego community, and whether or not he was still building?

Additionally, the book concludes with what might be the answer to your question: the birth of his kid. If there's any "real life" event that could drag a person away from the LEGO community, that'd be a prime example. Perhaps he simply has no time for LEGO between taking care of his child and writing professionally to bring in the necessary income.
In any event, I don't think it's reasonable to think that he simply lost interest in LEGO. More likely he still has a strong interest, but the community aspect of it-- the aspect which was most prominent for him, as far as I could tell from reading the book-- is just too much for him to maintain given the other important things in his life.
