Authors Hotline - Where authors and their readers connect
CW4K

The Author Hotline

is being developed by CW4K, or Creative Writing 4 Kids. They are the company behind a website that enables children to create and publish their own stories online.

Q: What were you like at school?

snap

A bit too brainy for my own good. Now I'm not such a clever clogs and I'm much happier.

Q: Which three words describe you best?

snap

'I am very ...' Oops! That's my three words!

Q: What is your favourite word?

snap

Hey! I'm a writer. I have lots of fave words. Can I choose two? Ok, there's 'lugubrious' and 'satsuma'. I get really lugubrious when I don't eat satsumas!

Q: What are you afraid of?

snap

Anything fat and hairy that has more than two legs!

Q: How long have you been a writer?

snap

About ten years.

Q: Where do you do your writing?

snap

Anywhere. You'll often see me scribbling at street corners until the police come and carry me off.

Q: Where do you get your greatest ideas from?

snap

I wish I knew. They just seem to pop into my head like lemon sherbet.

Q: Which of your own characters do you most identify with?

snap

The Newt in the Suit. He always gets to do the things I never did as a child.

Q: What was your favourite book as a child?

snap

The Lord of the Rings. I remember being glued to my Gran's couch for about three days while I got through all 900 pages. She had to bring me my meals and snacks and everything. It was great!

Q: What advice would you give to aspiring authors?

snap

Always carry round a notebook, and whenever something pops into your head (however silly) just write it down. Also, read lots and lots of books!
