How Did You Know You Wanted To Be An Author? I have been writing for as long as I can remember and I always wanted to be an author. Growing up, I was fortunate to be surrounded by incredible storytellers. My mum, especially, was able to weave captivating tales. She instilled in me, at a very early age, a fondness of books, an appreciation of language and creating stories. I was always surrounded by books. I loved where they would take me, to lands far away, full of magic and wonder.
What Is Your Advice For Aspiring Authors? Back yourself. Keep writing and sharing your stories with others. Push past any fear or reservations you may have.
I also think it is extremely valuable to surround yourself with other authors and illustrators. They can teach you so much. I find children’s authors and illustrators are so generous. They are always willing to share their experience and lessons learned. It’s wonderful. Being around those in the industry gives you so much inspiration and guidance. It is essential for your craft.
