Welcome Pauline and thanks for joining us on the blog today!
What is the most recent book you’ve had published and can you please tell us a bit about it?
My most recent book is called Cinnamon Stevens – Crime Buster. It’s a fun, mystery story for readers 9-12. Cinnamon dreams of being a super sleuth. Her chance comes when a class-mate disappears.
What was the first story you remember writing when you were at school and can you tell us what happened in the story?
When I was about thirteen I wrote my first book The Spellbinder’s Secret. Cassandra and her cousin Alison have magical powers. They get entangled in a war between good and bad magicians. Unfortunately it’s still unpublished!
What got you interested in writing in the first place?
I was always interested in writing because I love reading. I think that being able to create characters and tell a story is an amazing gift. Every day I try to do it better.
What’s your favourite writing tip and how do you use it in your writing?
My writing tip is: don’t panic when the words aren’t flowing or you can’t think of an idea. Go for a long walk or have a hot shower. Relax. Your imagination is amazing. Trust that it will, eventually, solve the problem.
What’s your favourite fun activity to do besides writing?
My favourite fun activity is playing table tennis. I also love going to the beach. Winter or summer doesn’t matter. I just love the sea.
