I love writing picture books because …

Of the way both the words and pictures work together to tell a story. I also love the challenge of getting each word right as picture books command economy of text to the max. Then of course, there is seeing for the first time the Illustrator’s interpretation of the story –  I just love, love, LOVE IT! 

 

What’s at the End of this Piece of Rope?  is about …    

A young character (called Charlie - little-known fact as the character’s name is never mentioned in the story) who embarks on a wonderful ‘jungly’ adventure meeting animal friends along the way that help her pull!  tug!  humphff! and heave! to discover what is at the end of this piece of rope. It celebrates co-operation. problem-solving and best of all, the power of a child’s imagination.

   

I love to write …  

In quiet spots. Most definitely.    

 

I get my inspiration from …

Anywhere, anytime and anything. After all, I was inspired by winding up a piece of rope to write this story!

 

When I’m not writing I am …

Thinking about what to write next (as well as trying to keep safe my very ‘adventurous’ family.)
