Spies, pirates, angry hippos and magic eggs!
It was a real pleasure to see you at work last week. It takes a lot of confidence to start writing a story, and you took to it brilliantly. I got the impression that if you hadn't had to stop working on your cover and illustrations at the end of the day, you'd have kept at it indefinitely. I was very impressed!
I believe there are stories all around us. Every time we look out of a window or step onto the street, we become part of them. Keep your eyes and ears open, and you'll spot them everywhere.
Keep up the stories, and the poems and wonderful cover designs too.
