I am a mother of a litle author and illustrator. My 5 years son wrote 3 stories by using his experience and imagination. A thought came into my mind that why should not I try to publish my child’s work?
Request your suggestion and guidence inthis regard.
Thank You so much in adavnce for your valuable time.
Thanks and Regards,

Dear Veena, Kudos to your son for writing! Keep at it. I’d suggest you check out this link to the Scholastic India writing awards. It might be a nice way to help your son focus and expand his creative talents! Best wishes. Anita

Can you list your favourite books….

Thanks Anoop. This is a tough one – and the list really changes depending on how I’m feeling at any particular point. Sometimes, I just need to sit in a corner and re-read House at Pooh Corner by A.A. Milne or A Stitch in Time by Madeleine L’Engle, or any of a number of books that I loved passionately as a child. The book that for me, most resembles snuggling down with a delicious box of chocolates, is Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day by Winifred Watson – a more or less forgotten author, whose delightful book was reissued a few years back by Persephone books, who specialise in publishing forgotten gems by women writers of the past: this one was first published in 1937. To make me laugh, I read Joe Keenan (Blue Heaven, in particular) and David Sedaris; to make me think, I read Moby-Dick; to scare and delight, I turn to The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman; and if I ever need reminding of the joys of the natural world, I turn to W.P. Hodgkinson Eternal Silence (which you can find more about here on the site), or the works of Robert MacFarlane, Helen Macdonald, William Fiennes or Roger Deakin. And I haven’t even STARTED on the non-fiction list! Hope that’s enough to be getting on with!

Read your article Delhi, Adieu. I just loved it. If I needed a reason to make up my mind, you gave it to me. And then some. Will be back for more. Best wishes
