Interviews

Authors are very special people, they help transport our young children (and us adults) to places they would never dream of going, help them to become heroes of their stories, open their minds to new possibilities and dreams. That is why at STORGY Kids we are dedicated to interview the best Children’s Fiction writers in the land, from far and wide, to help them engage with their young followers, to have questions answered, to learn about the writing process, to discover what inspires them and also to discover more books to read.

If you are a children’s / Young Adult author and want to get in touch about an interview please contact us, if you are a publisher looking to get more exposure for a Children’s book we’d love to hear from you too.
