I was inspired when I read the Harry Potter series for the first time. That was when I realised what I wanted to do. I read those books and I just knew that this was what I was going to do. It’s all I’ve ever wanted to do. And now, I have all the characters in my books, and they’re like friends to me. Some of the most precious things I have are my book characters. They’re always there, in my imagination, and I don’t know what I’d do without them.
