It’s a wonderful thing when you think you have all of your favourite author’s books and then, just by chance, you find one that you’ve never seen before on a second-hand book stall. It’s pretty close to being one of the best things EVER in the whole world.
When I found a collection of Terry Pratchett’s short stories, A Blink of the Screen, this was me:
They ran all the way from his very early work to Disc World short stories featuring characters from his novels. Fair to say, nothing else got done and the children were completely neglected until I’d read it. I may even have to read it again very soon 😊.
Who’s your favourite author? Mine is Terry Pratchett. I’ve read (and reread) all his books and they never fail to delight and inspire me. Sadly, Terry passed away in 2015 but if I had had a chance to spend some time with him I would have asked him these questions:
Who’s your favourite author?
What do you think the hardest part of writing is?
How do you keep track of so many characters across so many different books?
What story haven’t you written yet, that you would love to write?
Will you be my BFF? (OK, not that one)
What about you? Who’s your favourite author and what would you like to ask them?
Terry Pratchett is my all time favorite author. Before his death in 2015 he wrote a huge number of books, most notably The Disc-World books. Because he wrote so many and because I am unashamedly biased I could not choose just one book to review.
