Kiaora, I live in an amazing place, on the Thames Coast of the Coromandel Peninsula. I work from a little studio in my back garden. I look out my studio window across the park to the beach. Many of my stories are about the sea, or about nature. We have the bush close by and I love to walk alongside the Waiomu Stream, right up to a grove of magnificent Kauri. But not all my stories come from nature. I keep a watch on what’s happening around me and I listen to what people say. Sometimes a joke can give me an idea. But most of my stories come from my own experience…the happy times, the sad times, and the special people I’ve known. You’ll see that I do a lot of readers for schools. I enjoy doing these. They’re like a story and a puzzle combined. The story is the most important part but there are lots of reading level challenges to get right too. The readers go all over the world, with some of them translated into other languages. Some of you may already have some of my books like 'Why Do Dogs Sniff Bottoms', 'Big Bouncer' or 'Doggy Doo on My Shoe'. I'm really excited about visiting your school and seeing what great Duffy Books you have chosen. See you soon!
