“An Interview With Alex Marchant” by Esther Chilton

I meet some fantastic people at events around the country and back in the summer I was delighted to meet Esther Chilton, fellow author and editor, at the UK Indie Lit Fest in Bradford.

Esther Chilton

We had a lovely chat about children’s books and she asked me to guest on her blog at https://esthernewtonblog.wordpress.com/

She sent me some great questions to answer, including a knotty one about which of my books is my favourite (surely that’s no more possible to answer than which of my children is?!), and the results are on her blog today. So if you’re intrigued as to any aspect of my writing and how I came to write my books (including those yet to be published…), you might like to hop over to An Interview With Alex Marchant…

Many thanks to Esther for hosting me 😁
