- Why did you want to be a writer?
I can’t seem to help making images. I’ve done it forever! I enjoy texture and colour and playing with it. Sometimes my images are used to illustrate children’s stories, sometimes to feature on NZ postage stamps and other times on peoples walls in their homes.
- What’s the best thing about being a writer?
Being able to do what I love for my job and introducing other people to the fun I have so they can enjoy it too. Either using their imagination to interpret my pictures or using my techniques to make their own new ones.
- What’s your favourite New Zealand book?
Always the one I am working on or have just had published. At the moment it is “Remember that November” by Jennifer Beck.
- What do you love most about New Zealand?
Living by the sea on its gorgeous coast line under some pohutakawa trees.
- What do you love most about libraries?
That books are free! BUT I never want to take them back!!
