My Life in 8 Words

Author Revealed

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Who ate all the chocolate?

Q. If you could be any person or thing, who or what would it be?

A. I'd like to be a crocodiddleotamus.

Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?

A. I had a brilliant day writing. Then I had a walk round my island. Now I'm sitting by an open fire with a good book, a cat on my knee and Liz by my side.

Q. If you could acquire any talent, what would it be?

A. I'd love to be able to illustrate my picture books, but I can't draw for toffee. If I try and draw a pig it looks like a worm.

Q. What do you regret most?

A. I wish I hadn't just eaten the whole of that chocolate bar. I wish I'd managed to save some of it for later. And a tiny bit for you.
