What This Course Is and Isn’t


As the author of more than 23 books for children I see my job as, drum roll…

Character Creation!



Let’s get real

• Why have my books been read by thousands?

• Why do my books have raving fans, both kids and adults?

• Why do I keep writing, writing, writing?

Because I LOVE people and I love making up stuff about ’em!

Characters drive my stories, fuel my imagination and enchant my readers.

Characters keep me coming back to the page, too. That’s why I always (eventually) get to the finish line. Because I care deeply about my characters.

It’s as simple (and tricky) as that!


Where do YOU struggle?


If you’re struggling to create compelling characters (that YOU want to hang out with).

If your characters are lacklustre or reluctant to step forward.

If you know there’s something ‘wrong’ with your cast but you can’t quite define it.

If your stories are plodding along like donkeys in old gumboots.

If editors, publishers, critique groups or your mum keep saying, bring your hero forward!

If you just want your readers to connect more passionately with your work.

You’ve gotta become skilled at CHARACTER CREATION!


I’ve been teaching creative writing for over a decade. In that time I’ve noticed a few things:

• Authors need reassurance.

• Authors need ongoing support.

• Authors feel vulnerable (and rightly so, this is hard work).

• Authors need to learn many complex things. And they need to keep on learning — over and over. (And that includes professional authors. There’s no shame in cyclical learning.)

• Most aspiring authors have talent.

• Most wonky stories have wonky characters (and not in a good way).

• When we pour energy and imagination into our characters, when we breathe life into them, our plots, our stories and our projects start to POP!

Pop! Pop! Pop!
