Oh yes; it is the last day of June which can only mean one thing: author update time. Now today I have decided to choose a less well-known, but nevertheless amazing author: Claire Barker.
Claire is the author of the award-winning Knitbone Pepper series (which some readers may remember I have reviewed before). Situated in her cosy caravan (her writing hut) Claire writes and illustrates many children books for ages 8+.
Claire Barker says:
These days I live in Devon on a little farm on the edge of a wood. It is the perfect place for a writer to live, buzzing with life and stories. Every morning I get followed around by an assortment of wonky animals; honking, clucking, barking and bleating for their breakfast. Then, once this is done and finally all is calm, I sit down – steaming cup of coffee on one side, snoozing dog on the other – and get down to the seriously fun business of wrangling words into the right order.
Claire Barker’s book series: Knitbone Pepper Ghost Dog was chosen by children as the winner of the book factor awards 2017.
