was the first book that you ever wrote?
I've been writing
stories of course since I was very young. I wrote a special chapter
book in 1994 that was designed for a math problem solving kit. It
was called Fizz & Martina's Not-For-Profit Pet

many books have you made?
Well, I have
probably written about 65 stories. Some are books, some are short
films, some are interactive stories on the web, some books I have
illustrated and some I have illustrated and written. I'd say that
doing both the art and writing is my favorite. I have about 6 new
books in the works and ideas for about 100 more!
is your favorite book that you have made?
That's a tough
one! I'd say, The Dot is my current
favorite. I love seeing how it inspires people to be brave - to
make their mark!
is your favorite book?
question! So many good ones! As a child, my favorite was Charlie
& the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl. I am
also a big fan of Charles Dickens, William Steig, among others.
long does it take you to make a book?
About 18 months
from the idea popping into my mind until the time I can walk into
the bookshop and see it on the shelf! In publishing, a year and
a half is considered fast. It takes time to craft a book. Lots of
revisions, and making sure it all makes sense and will be enjoyed
by people around the world.
