I think I have the best job in the world.
I get to sit and make up stories for young people all day.
Of course, when I say that I’m writing for older children, teenagers and young adults, I’m actually writing for myself.
They’re the stories that I want to read. It’s just that I need to write them first.

I suppose I ought to mention the down-side of the job though.
The pay is rubbish.
But I reckon that the satisfaction and enjoyment more than makes up for that.
After all, who needs money to live on anyway…?
