G.P. Taylor Interview

G.P. Taylor, author of Shadowmancer, Tersias and Mariah Mundi, answered my questions in 2006.

What was your favourite book when you were a child?
The Lord of the Flies by William Golding.

Which of your books was most difficult to write? Why?
Wormwood - because I didn't want to write it.

Which of your characters is most like you?
Jacob Crane (from Shadowmancer) - he has a bad temper.

How do you write your books? Do you plot and plan in detail, or do you develop an idea as you are writing?
They just appear and sort of happen!

Why do you enjoy writing for children?
Because they dont spend time writing stupid reviews.

What advice would you give to young writers to help them improve their stories?
Read! Read! Read!
Enjoy! Enjoy! Enjoy!
