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.

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: How long have you been a writer?

snap

I have been writing stories since I was about 8 years old, I think my first story was called 'Ghost Stallion', I designed the cover and did all the illustrations, but I wrote my first 'proper' story about 18 years ago. It has never been published! Since then I have been perfecting my craft and my first book has just been published by Korea Hemingway.

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

snap

Yes I do remember the specific moment, it was a very wet Sunday afternoon about 18 years ago. I was pretty much penniless, and there was not much to do. I wrote a story about a fox and a badger.

Q: What was your favourite book as a child?

snap

I was always reading, I was never without a book on the go. My favourites were Heidi by Joanna Spyri and Anna Sewell's Black Beauty.

Q: What advice would you give to aspiring authors?

snap

Keep a note book and/or sketch book and observe everyday events/happenings characters, these notes will always come in useful for ideas, characters and plots. Know your market, your intended audience. Write a little every day. Believe in yourself.
