Can I have two? Kindness, and independence.

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

Not really, although I sometimes think it was when I was ten and started writing my own Narnia stories. You can see one on my website!

Q: Where do you get your greatest ideas from?

snap

Who knows? They kind of appear out of nowhere.

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

Peer Ulfsson in the three 'Troll' books because he always tries so hard, and Nest in 'Dark Angels', because she likes reading and she's an adventurer.

I go out and do something different for a day or two, or as long as it takes.

Just KEEP WRITING! Don't give up, don't be discouraged, and read as much as you possibly can. That way you'll gradually figure out how other authors do it!
