Julia Golding - a quick interview!

We have been very lucky to have worked with Julia Golding recently on some school events and we took the opportunity to ask her a few questions about her writing and who is her favourite fictional character...

Julia, what was your favourite book when you were young?
At around nine, The Little Princess by Frances H.B.

Do you have a current favourite book or author? If yes, who?
So many! Shannon Hale is a favourite you might not yet have read.

Which of your characters do you most enjoy writing?
Cat Royal

Did you always want to be a writer?

If you weren't a writer, what would you be?

A fantastic singer (but this is not a realistic dream)

Are you working on anything new at the moment?
Always. A new fantasy series in four books, provisional title Dark Lore.

If you could be any fictional character, who would you be and why?
Elizabeth Bennet because she gets Mr Darcy and Pemberley

You have twenty-four hours to do whatever you want. What would you do?
Pretty much what I usually do - write and spend time with my family.

Thank you Julia! Look out for some more short interviews with authors and illustrators.
