I have always wanted to 'become' an author. Now I know that you don't become an author, you either are one, or you aren't, published or not.
When I was 9, I sent some homemade books to Heinemann asking them to publish them. They declined, but with a personal note that they were sure I'd get published one day!
The Thought Shapers is undergoing revisions. I am half way through writing the sequel about which a reader for The Literacy Consultancy said, 'I am in awe, frankly.'.If you are interested in reading either The Thought Shapers, or its sequel, Dreamcatcher, please contact me.
I very much appreciate all the comments I've had on The Thought Shapers, It is now stronger so thank you all.
So many, I could never mention them all. Here are some books that have grabbed me in one way or the other over the last year or two.
Cloud Atlas - David Mitchell - I admire the deft way he handles so many voices.
The Time Traveller's Wife - Audrey Niffenegger - how does she manage that timeline? I loved the characters and cried - lots.
His Dark Materials - Philip Pullman - great ideas, fantasy on a huge scale.
