What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
The world we live in seems to be spiralling out of control into a cloud of hatred. I wanted to help parents approach the topic of bullying, making friends and kindness with their kids.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
Sid the main character in the Sid the Kindest Kid stories is inspired by my son. We came up with of the skeleton my first book Sweets, Sweets, Sweet during our night time sorry times. The character Kameron was inspired by his best friend in nursery school when he was a toddler. The girl in the story is inspired by my daughter and I came up with the character Ben out of the blue. I honestly thought that the name was easy to remember and I was going to call the book Ben the Bully which rhymed, but my community felt the name Ben Learns to Be Kind and was more positive.
'Just then, Ben ran into the classroom, kicked the train tracks, which Kameron, Sid and Suzy had just completed building and ran off.
Sid picked up one of the trains and ran after Ben the bully.
What do you think Sid did next?'
