Freddy and Friends: Freddy the Frog (Author Interview)

Freddy and Friends looks like an exciting children’s story.  Can you tell us a little about it?

Freddy the Frog is about overcoming fears, believing in yourself and belonging. Freddy is scared to take a chance, but through the love and support of friends, he builds up the courage to try and learns a valuable lesson


Any plans to turn it into a series?

Yes, I have written another 4 books that we have started getting illustrated to release hopefully by Christmas this year!


What motivated you to become a writer?

I have always been a lover of the arts and the stories told through music, musicals, plays, etc. but more recently, I have become an uncle to three nephews and a niece. I wanted to pass on my love of the arts and story to them but didn’t know how. That's when I began to write the Freddy and Friends series, dedicated to my family. I hope they fall in love with story and imagination the way did as a child.


What will readers get out of your book?

A simple, fun loving story with a lesson of belonging and believing in yourself – great for early readers!


What age group is the book for?

0 – 7 years old


What do you like to do when not writing?

When I’m not writing I love to be outdoors, usually hiking and taking landscape photos or fishing with friends. On a rainy day you’d find me curled up on the couch watching movies with a glass of cheap wine!


Where can readers find out more about your work?

Amazon at the moment – the website is coming soon though!
