What are you working on at the moment?
I have written my first book entitled
Jimmy Threepwood and the Veil of Darkness. This will be available in stores from 18th October 2012.
This is the first book in a series of five and I am correctly writing the second, Jimmy Threepwood and the Elixir of Light.
If you had to recommend just one children's book you've read in the last year, what would it be?
Star Wars Darth Plagueis - by James Luceno
What is the most important thing you learned about writing or illustrating this year?
Keep going at all costs, never give up
