I like to write when I get inspiration, sometimes very late at night!
I love writing, and I want to share my work with the world!
Book Four of "The Snugs Series"
The magical optical illusion on the chalky cliffs of The Isle of Wight in England known as "The Isle of Wight Polar Bear"
I am a Children's Fiction Author, and I specialize in Middle Grade/Young Adult fiction.
A fair amount. I drew on real life experience in my childhood and adulthood to create the settings and the characters, although both are fictitious!
I play more to my strengths, and have more daring than when I started out! my characters tend to lead me and write themselves!
I felt a deep nostalgia for Southbourne, where I used to live.
Seeing kids enjoy my stories, which I read live from time to time!
I would have started writing books at a younger age.
I know what works. I scrap anything I don't like, and I am ruthless at "chipping away" so that I keep things simple.
A diver, with a little bit of forward planning, too!
I like feedback, and I am happy to say it is good.
I like to be responsive and adjust my approach or write what kids are interested in.
My publisher edits my work. He brings out the best in me and encourages me to develop ideas.
Many people have encouraged me - too many to mention here.
Get out there and meet people!
A good test of a writer, and valuable for readers who like to follow writers and their characters.
As long as it takes to say something worthwhile.
