Reading a book is easy. Writing one is slightly harder.
(Guess which I excel at?!)
So when I met Christine Hurst on the 30 Day Challenge earlier this year and discovered that she was a children’s author, she was instantly catapulted to god-like status in my eyes.
Thankfully, her journey to being published has been rather more down-to-earth and has involved the ceremonial burning of 40 rejection letters (which, let’s face it, is the kind of detail that gives the rest of us aspiring authors a serious dollop of hope).
And…I am chuffed to announce that Christine has kindly agreed to share her story here!! (Thank you Christine for being such a star and for answering my long list of questions.)

Thank you for making this happen, and for using the verb “chuffed”!
Ha ha, my pleasure (it’s a good word).
