Authors Hotline - Where authors and their readers connect

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. In its first year it has signed up over 2000 members and has been enthusiastically received by children, parents and teachers. In fact the response has been so encouraging that they are planning a huge expansion of its services. Embedding The Author Hotline into the site is part of that expansion...

Q: What were you like at school?

snap

Very shy and quiet, with a good imagination. I was also kind and liked to help other children.

Q: Which three words describe you best?

snap

Creative, funny and empathetic.

Q: What is your most treasured possession?

snap

My children. Though I still have a teddy, I was given when I was 4-years-old. That makes the teddy 32! It's a gorilla called "Gorilla". Original, I know. It only has one eye because the other one fell off during a wrestling match I had with him when I was 5.

Q: What did you want to be when you were a child?

snap

I wanted to be a doctor. Until I read my first Roald Dahl book. Then, I wanted to be Roald Dahl!

Q: What profession other than yours would you like to attempt?

snap

Acting and singing in a musical, but I'm not very good at dancing!

Q: What quality do you most admire in a person?

snap

Kindness is the most beautiful quality human beings can have. If you make it your life's goal to be kind, to everyone, everyday, you can be certain that you will be loved wherever you go and remembered forever.

Q: What is the best advice anyone has ever given you?

snap

"Never get old" was the advice given to me by a 90-year-old woman when I was 18. Unfortunately, I have aged almost 18 years since she told me this. Sometimes, the best advice is the hardest to follow!

Q: What would you most like to change about yourself?

snap

I'm happy with who I am, so I concentrate on changing the world instead.

Q: What has life taught you?

snap

There is a reason for everything.

Q: How long have you been a writer?

snap

My first children's book was published in 2011. Though I had been writing poems for a few years before, this was the time I began to take my writing seriously.

Q: Was there a specific moment in your life when you decide to become a writer?

snap

While skimming stones, a bee flew into my face. After flailing out, a funny story about it formed in my mind.

Q: What are the best and worst things about being an author?

snap

The best thing is that you get to take ideas out of your head and put them into other peoples heads.

Q: Where do you get your greatest ideas from?

snap

I listen to music without words. Music makes me feel different emotions, and my brain tries to understand why by putting pictures in my mind.

Q: What was your favourite book as a child?

snap

Matilda, by Roald Dahl. I also loved James and the Giant Peach, The Hairy Toe and many more.

Q: What book do you wish you had written?

snap

The Gruffalo by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler. I also wish I had illustrated it!

Q: What advice would you give to aspiring authors?

snap

Keep trying. There will be times you feel you're not good enough, but the people who finish books are the ones who don't give up.
