I have spent the last year surrounded by books. It’s been a wonderful year and I have loved every minute of it.
The highlights have been spending time with the wonderful children at my school inspiring them to develop a love of reading. I have also been fortunate to spend time with some truly wonderful authors some of which have written some of the fantastic books I have had the joy of sharing with the children at school.
A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of meeting Claire Barker the author of the Knitbone Pepper books when she visited our school. Oh boy was she lovely! It was like speaking with an old friend. We talked books and writing and art and so many other things.
Claire was especially wonderful and answered some questions for me, with the proviso that I posted them here on my website.
Is it nice be known as the author of the ‘Knitbone Pepper Series’?
Oh yes! What a wonderful question. Writers dream that their stories will live on in other people’s imaginations. I’m like a proud parent, I want Knitbone to make lots of friends! I love it when children say they couldn’t put it the book down. That’s the biggest compliment. View full post »
