Author's Comment: I have two daughters, Laurie and Lois, who are grown now but still give me lots of ideas. I live in Somerset in the west of England in a very old house in the middle of a village. The west of England is a Magykal place, with marshes, ancient ports and ruined castles. It is a great place to live and write Septimus Heap.
