Authors Hotline - Where authors and their readers connect

Q: What is your favourite word?

snap

Babyspeck - an elderly German woman once used it to describe my baby's chubby thighs. It means 'baby bacon'!

Q: How long have you been a writer?

snap

I wrote my first books in 2003, the year that Europe launched its first mission to Mars. I've written more than 100 children's books since then, from picture books to encyclopedias.

Q: Where do you get your greatest ideas from?

snap

Everywhere! Your memory is a unique mix of everything you've read, heard, seen and done. Making interesting connections between these things can give you a brilliant idea for a book. I've done a lot of travelling, and studied some fascinating science at university, so my brain is packed with plenty of raw material. But it's often a question from one of my children that helps my brain look at this knowledge in a brand new way.
