What are you working on?


Let’s have a game of tag – answer the questions and tag another blogger…

What is the working title of your book?
Ockleberries to the Rescue

Door

Where did the idea come from for the book?

I wrote very short stories for my children years ago but lost the manuscript so I’m trying to remember everything I wrote.

What genre does your book fall under?

It is a children’s educational story.

Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?

I can see it as an animated movie so voiceovers would be key. For my two main characters probably Sam Elliott and Joan Cusack

What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?

Forest sprites use magic and herbal healing to help forest animals.

Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?

Most probably it will be published through Dream Write Publishing.

How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?

I am still in the research and planning stage – I will write the bulk of the manuscript during NaNoWriMo 2012.

What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?

I haven’t found anything quite like it but The Faraway tree by Enid Blyton had an enchanted wood in it. There are also lots of books about forest animals but are more factual.

Who or What inspired you to write this book?

My family has always been interested in nature and I thought this would be a fun way to teach children about animals.

What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?

The mysterious goddess the sprites learnt from is an actual legend.
