WHERE AND WHEN WERE YOU BORN?
I was born in London, England in 1989.
WHAT WAS YOUR FAVOURITE SUBJECT AT SCHOOL?
I loved Maths and English the most. English because I got to write poems and stories. Maths because I’m great with numbers.
WHAT DID YOU WANT TO BE WHEN YOU GREW UP?
I wanted to be a teacher. I lined up my toys, gave each one a name and did registration. I told off anyone who was late. If my toys were going on a school trip, I collected money for the trip and money for packed lunch. It was a lot of fun!
DID YOU HAVE PETS WHEN YOU WERE YOUNGER?
We had a cat called Ruby, a hamster called Malcolm and a dog called Mercedes. They were all amazing pets!
WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE COLOUR?
Blue because it’s the colour of the ocean and the sky.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE ANIMAL?
It’s too hard to pick one. It’s a tie between cats and horses. Cats are so cute and friendly. Horses are so wild and free. I love them both.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE VEGETABLE AND FRUIT?
Broccoli is delicious, and the green colour is lovely to look at. My second favourite vegetable is sweetcorn because it’s so tasty. Just like Mya Dove, I love grapes! Her favourite is the green (white) ones. I prefer juicy, sweet, tasty red grapes.
WOULD YOU EVER GO SKYDIVING, BUNGEE JUMPING OR DEEP SEA DIVING?
Sea diving would be great because I love the ocean so much. It’s so beautiful to look at. I’d love to see the creatures down there. I wouldn’t go skydiving or bungee jumping because it’s too scary!
WHAT IS THE SCARIEST MONSTER YOU CAN IMAGINE?
I hate spiders, so I’d hate to meet a flying, jumping spider that can swim. How could I escape? It’d be so scary!
WHAT HAVE YOU CREATED THAT YOU’RE MOST PROUD OF?
My books. I love the characters and worlds they live in. I’d love to write hundreds of books in my lifetime.
WHAT DO YOU WANT TO BE REMEMBERED FOR?
I want people to remember me for being a good person.
WHAT WOULD BE YOUR SPIRIT ANIMAL?
A bird because they can travel around the world. They fly with other birds so they aren’t lonely on long journeys.
WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE THING ABOUT BEING A WRITER?
The freedom. I love being free to write fun stories about whatever I want. Writers can write anywhere, anytime we like. I write on my phone, tablet or computer. When I’m ready to write, I write!
