What was your favourite childhood book and why?
This is a really hard question but I think I’d have to say J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings. My Dad read it to me and my brother as our bedtime story when we were little and it was brilliant because, apart from being an amazing story filled with incredible characters and fantastical worlds and action, it went on for AGES.
Which of your own books is your favourite and why?
My favourite book is usually whatever I’m working on next! So I’d have to say the next volume of Mega Robo Bros, which I’m working on at the moment, and I’m really, REALLY excited about.
Why do you choose to read?
Reading is just the best. Like, genuinely the best idea human beings ever came up with. A way to share the ideas from the inside of one person’s head to another. A way to experience whole worlds of imagination and experience you never would have had access to otherwise. It expands our lives and makes them infinitely richer. All in all, I am a bit of a fan.
