Abi Elphinstone, author of 'Rumblestar' - Children's author talks finding the right audience, believable characters and thorough research.
Abi Elphinstone has just started the brand new kids' series 'The Unmapped Chronicles'. The first of which, 'Rumblestar', sees Casper Tock stumbling across a hidden world which magically controls the weather. The idea came from a desire to get kids outside, away from screens and into nature - we talk about having that grand concept, and making it relatable to kids in a few hundred pages.
You can hear why it took her a bunch of rejections to finally realise what was wrong about her writing, also how she works writing days around travelling and being a mum, and we chat mood boards, plotting, planning and where people go wrong writing for children.
