Three days ago, I reviewed the great short story ebook ‘LOST IN THE WOODS’ by Fun London. Since then, we’ve kept in touch, and he’s kindly agreed to do a quick interview – so here it is!

When did you realise you wanted to become a children’s author?

When I realised how much joy and entertainment I took as a child and an adult from stories and fairy tales, I wanted to be able to create that same excitement for others.

What made you decide to take the ebook path to publishing?

It’s the most A to B program for an author to get his work out and affords a great amount of control.

Do you have a writing process? Is there planning involved, or do you just sit down and write whatever flows out?

Good question. I do some of both. When a story is rolling, keep it rolling. When it needs some planning, I do some planning.

Do you have a special writing place? Are you an inside or outside person?

My wife has created a room we call “the cabin” where I do the heavy lifting.

I recently reviewed your short story ‘LOST IN THE WOODS’, which was wonderful. Where did you get the inspiration for it?

Rudyard Kipling & Lewis Carroll are two authors I admire.

A break from the questions for a second: tell us a bit about yourself.

In addition to writing I work as a private tutor. I’m a nature enthusiast and love spending time outdoors. I’ve always enjoyed team sports and group activities. And, needless to say, I love and enjoy spending time with children.

I saw in your book’s biography that you came from Italy, and that you’ve travelled a fair bit since then… Do you have a favourite place you’ve been to?

My favourite places have been in books like Tolkien’s Middle-earth
and Harry Potter’s Hogwarts.

Dogs or cats?

Woof woof.

Last one: any advice for aspiring writers?

Stop thinking and start writing.

Oh, one last thing – do you have a recent book you’d like to plug? Or maybe just give a shoutout to your website?

I would recommend readers to check out The Dog Prince and The Dog Princess books. They’re fun.

Thanks again to Fun London for agreeing to the interview. It was very insightful, and I hope you check out his work.

Until next time!
