How did you get started writing?

When I was 7 we had to write a diary entry every day at school.  The best ones received a star. My entries never won a star, so I started to make things up. My uncle was the pilot of Concorde. I'd climbed the Eiffel Tower. Once I started getting the stars I never looked back.  

Who influenced you?

So many great writers from Jane Austen to JK Rowling. 

Do you have a favorite book/subject/character/setting?

Favourite book - Of Mice and Men

Character - Peter Pan 

What advice do you have for someone who wants to be an author?

Accept that you are a writer. Success is irrelevant. You've been born lucky, you’ve found something you love. 

Where is your favorite place to write?

In my house, in a quiet room with the sound of my family in the distance. 

What else would you like to tell us?

I love writing and have one purpose, to write something that makes people happy. If a few people are taken away to a different place for a few hours, that's enough. 


Thank you for joining LitPick today! We are quite impressed by your creative diary entries when you were only seven years old.
