Most illustrators have their way of doing eyes or a mouth. Axel has the goggle eyes, some do a dot. When you come up with a new book, do you work with the illustrator ahead of time to come up with preliminary ideas? I tend to bounce ideas off my editor.
I never speak to Axel beforehand. Sometimes the illustrator will influence me in that way but not the storyline. How does your creative process work? Will you have a few stories bubbling away at one time? I never do that with books, except at the moment because I am compiling a poetry anthology. Do you think that prepared you well for the rhyming books?
Yes, because the songs usually have a verse and a chorus. I became quite adept at the structure of it all and the music helps to be lilting and choose the right words. Yes, but I think all people used to be able to do write verse. When I was little, there was a programme called Listen With Mother on the radio and there were always two nursery rhymes and a story.
And in primary school, we sang a hymn every day.

So we all knew a hundred rhyming, scanning hymns. In Victorian times, every self-respecting person could turn out a poem which rhymed and scanned perfectly. You campaigned heavily against the library closures a few years ago.
What do you think about the lack of female lead characters in picture books? Quite honestly, you get all this movement towards having strong females but if you do that and have dopey men, all the men complain and say they are disempowered. So I never bother about trying to please people. I write what I want to write and sometimes there will be strong women. If you think of Stick Man, it was just going to be a man.
The Highway Rat just has to be a man. I try hard to have female characters. When I wrote Zog, I really wanted a female character, I wanted to write a book about dragons and I liked an idea of Madam Dragon, which meant the hero had to be male.

In the Giant Jumperee I made sure I had roughly the same of each gender. Sometimes the names influence it though. When is that due out? I think next year, I think Sara is just starting it. She had other things in the queue, I wrote it quite a while ago.
There was a picture on the wall of the hospital dog and I found out that the owner lived very near me. I went and met them, and went on a walk round the hospital with them. I hope the Queen has seen my book, I keep trying to get it to her!
It is excruciating difficult to write the stories. Do you have a particular place you write? Do you have a favourite book or is it ever-changing?
Of the Axel books I have a soft-spot for The Highway Rat, because he is villainous but endearing at the same time. The stories I wrote over that period got me a job at Reuters and for the next 18 months I worked in London and then Brussels.
InI officially started working for the FT.

They sent me to Lusaka, in Zambia, for a couple of years. From there I went back to London for a couple of years and worked on the Lex investment column. Tiananmen and Mandela In JanuaryI was sent to Japan to do maternity cover for a colleague and visited Beijing for a week. It was a few months before Tiananmen Square and the situation was quite tense.
There were few foreigners about and people were nervous about speaking to a foreigner. I arrived just before Nelson Mandela was released from prison and was there for seven years, through the high excitement of the end-of-apartheid times and until he became president.The Chainsmokers - Closer ft.

I wrote a book about making peace in South Africa, Anatomy of a Miracle: The FT gave me a columnist job. China was the obvious choice to adopt from because the babies were healthy and the Chinese system was seen as streamlined and predictable. I sent off the paperwork in and, nine months later, I was assigned a little girl and received a one-inch thumbnail photo of her with a little furrowed brow, looking worried. I ran to the copy shop and blew up the picture and copied it 15 times and put her photo all over the house.
When I went to China to collect her, she was eight months old. She was quite spunky and started walking very early. Soon after, I went back to China and adopted another baby girl. Eventually, I decided it would be easier to move to China than to try and teach them Chinese in America.
