FAQ's about writing

Here you'll find answers to the most common questions about my book.

Q: Why did you choose to write a Fiction Fantasy story for kids and young adults?
A:  If you want to write well, you need to write about something you are passionate about. My passion is kids and bettering the welfare of kids and young adults. In knowing my writing is benefitting others, it motivates me to write the best piece of work possible. Money is NOT a motivation for creating a great piece of writing.  

Q: What's the best part of being an author?
A: I think it's all about realising that the words you write could potentially reach and touch thousands of people. I also love being my own boss and being able to transport my mind to another world when I write.

Q: What's my secret dream for my book?
A: I'm not one to be interested in fame. I don't feel comfortable at the thought of being recognised on the street. My dream is to be able to reach thousands of parents and kids with the message I am trying to convey.

Q: Are you focussed on making money and selling millions of copies of your book?                                                                                                                              A: Of course I'd love to make money. Being a professional writer full time is my dream. If I make millions, great...but not for self gain. I would love to have more money than I need so that I can better our planet and the lives of the people who live in it.

Q: Why did you leave teaching to become a writer?
A:  Actually I am still teaching, but if the opportunity arises to write full time I will grasp it. Imagine being able to help thousands of kids at a time rather than just thirty or so that you teach in a year. That's my dream.
