Authors Hotline - Where authors and their readers connect

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. 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

I enjoyed school but sometimes now I think I was lacking in self-confidence and always thought that other people were better at things than me. Once I wrote a story that I thought was very special, but the teacher didn't like it and gave it the thumbs down. That put me off writing for years! I wish now I hadn't taken any notice of her.

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

snap

I always wanted to be a writer but in the end I became a teacher: it was lots of fun and I don't regret it at all because I taught some wonderful children but now I am a writer and I am really happy doing that and helping other people write books and publish them

Q: What is your favourite word?

snap

There are so many brilliant words that I couldn't possibly choose one, but in my next book which will be published in March I have included a new word: it is 'xrosmonaut'. The word xrosmonsut describes a person who travels through time and space. It comes from joining the term chronometer - a timepiece that is designed to be accurate in all conditions of temperature and pressure and the word astronaut. The 'ch' sound has been transposed to x as if texting.
