Getting sentences to work...

"I got halfway down the first page and realised to my astonishment that this was a story for young people. And I felt liberated. It was an area where I could renew myself. There were moments when I was spellbound by what I was writing. I thought, if I can just gather it, control it, then maybe the spell will go out to the reader too...

"People say to me, you're so prolific, and I think, now I am! It's the payoff for all the time I spent getting sentences to work properly. Like anything, you develop a skill through hard work."
