Hi! Could you tell us which game system is it going to be for? Fighting Fantasy, Gamebook Adventures, something else?
Hi TomI've actually got two more gamebook projects on the work slate. One is for Gamebook Adventures and one is for Black Library, but more than that I can't tell you just at the moment.
I never did get to ask you the one question I always reserved for you since last year. Always get a bit starstruck lol. Our dear Geraldine Cooke said at FFF, many people sent in books to Puffin they had written but all were ignored. How did you manage to get on board? Was it lucky dice or did they approach you? :)
Ha! They certainly didn't approach me! I was 18 at the time and had never been published anywhere!I wrote to Puffin Books generously offering to write them a brand new series of gamebooks. Rather than file my letter in the round filing cabinet in the corner, my missive was forwarded to Marc Gascoigne who was FF consultant editor at the time. He kindly replied, saying that I was welcome to try out for the FF range if I liked, but warning me that my chances of publication were very slim.The rest, as they say, is history...
