Interview with Trevor Salter AND Giveaway

Spellbound By Books would like to introduce Trevor Salter, Author and Illustrator of Monsters Galore, More Monsters Galore and Mask & Mime.

I'd like to say a big thank you, Trevor for taking the time out of your busy schedule to answer some of my questions!

Q1. Have you always wanted to write and draw? 
Yes i have always wanted to draw, from an early age i watched the Saturday morning cartoons and loved them. i was always drawing throughout my school years and making up silly stories...which got me in quite a lot of trouble with the teachers. 

Q2. What inspired you to write Monsters Galore?
I am in a writers group and we get homework after each meeting...on this particular time the theme for the homework was children,   a few nights later my Kids said they had monsters in their bedrooms so i told them that if the monsters weren't wearing pajamas they weren't allowed in their rooms and that sparked the Monsters Galore my 2 children inspired me.

Q3. Is there a question you've always wanted to be asked and haven't?  What would your answer be?
Yes there is..  the question would be, would you like to have the characters seen in an animated cartoon series?
My answer would have to be ," oh Yeah for sure...when do we get started."
Q4. Any tips and advice you would like to pass on to aspiring writers/illustrators?
Absolutely.... DON'T PROCRASTINATE.....and keep trying no matter how many knock backs you receive...believe in your work.
Q5. Any future projects planned that you would like to share with us? 
 Sure.. i have two more stories i would love to see on the shelves "My Stinky Brother" and "Hat's the Magician", both have Already been written and i am in the process of illustrating them. 
Q6 And last, your stuck on a deserted island, which character from your books would you take with you and why?
OH That's easy,  it would have to be Rickett as he would supply a constant stream of comedy relief to break up the boredom.    (Left: Rickett)
