Why did you want to become an author or illustrator?

I’ve always loved drawing and telling stories.

Do you have any advice for future authors or illustrators?

The only real way to get good is by making work—even if you’re not confident in your abilities, you will learn and get better the more work you make. Even established writers and artists usually consider their ‘best’ work whatever they’re working on at the moment.
