What was your favorite book when you were a child?

My favorite books as a kid were Muddy the Football by Alan Drake and Where’s Wally by Martin Handford.

Who are your top three favorite authors or illustrators?

Roald Dahl and J. K. Rowling are my top two.

Why did you want to become an author or illustrator?

I’ve always loved drawing, but never really thought I would be able to draw for a living. After studying Illustration at university I sent off a portfolio to some agents and I was lucky enough to get representation. I feel so lucky to be able to do what I enjoy!

Do you have any advice for future authors or illustrators?

If you love drawing or writing, keep drawing or writing.
