Qn 2: Who do you think would be interested in this book, is it directed at any particular market?

Lars the Loser is tailored to kids from ages 4-10, but the feedback from all ages has been exceptionally positive. One of the major perks of this book is that it includes two pages of family/classroom discussion questions to help your child process the concepts and create an open discussion.

Qn 3: Out of all the books in the world, and all the authors, which are your favourite and why?

That’s a tough one. I generally love to read non-fiction books but my all time favorite authors are J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series and all of Agatha Christie’s mystery novels.

Qn 4: What guidance would you offer to someone new, or trying to enhance their writing?

I would advise aspiring authors to not be to afraid to ask for help and do your research. A lot of people never publish because they are overwhelmed by the process, or they think no one will like their book. I say – ask plenty of people for feedback.
