What first interested you in writing for children?
Reading and being a massive book worm, both as a child and now. I never stopped reading children’s books (or listening to Abba). So it seemed a natural thing for me to do. Plus I was running the children’s department in Waterstone’s, Dawson Street when I first started writing for children – I was surrounded by wonderful books and met hundreds of inspirational children’s writers while I worked there – from J K Rowling to Judy Blume. I had no excuse – I had to write!
