I love writing. I love reading. I've always been the same. There’s something magical about fiction. There’s nothing better than getting lost in a book and getting caught up in a world that’s impossible to leave. I love books that I can’t put down, books that insist I read just one more chapter.
Children’s fiction is what I love writing the most. I couldn’t read enough as a kid and now, at the grand old age of 35, I still can’t. The fact that I can now read my own stories to my three children is a real thrill.
I consider myself exceptionally lucky. I have an amazing family, a great life and many wonderful friends. A number of people have said nice things about the books I’ve written.
I’ve been fortunate enough to achieve nine "Best Sellers" here and, amazingly, I've won the YouWriteOn Children's Book of Year Award three times:
2009 – Holly Weatherby & the Enchanted House
2012 – 365 Rooms
2013 – Jacob Groat & the Ghosts of Warehouse 33
If you do take the time to read anything I’ve written: thank you.
