Author's Comment: Q: What did you want to be when you were twelve, eighteen and thirty?

A: At twelve I wanted to be a brilliant research scientist. At eighteen I wanted to be a brilliant film director. And at thirty I wanted to write the greatest ever book about a flying pig who runs away from the circus to become a nanny.

Q: What do you hope people take away with them after reading your work?

A: Abdominal muscle tears from so much laughing. An annoying habit of quoting Nanny Piggins' words of wisdom. And a burning desire to buy my next book.
