“I think the important thing is just to enjoy the creative writing. Sit down and let the words flow. Maybe start by keeping diary as this is a great way to put pen to paper and then slowly you may find that more and more ideas will come.

"I always wrote as a child – and I think reading, whether it’s a book, on a Kindle or an iPad is crucial too – but I never thought I would go on to publish more than 100 books!

“If any young child wants to write I would give them every encouragement and suggest they read as much as possible, keep a daily diary to get into a regular writing habit, and to have fun writing their stories.”
