I am insanely excited to have the amazing Phil Earle here today. I absolutely love Phil's books - I don't know if you've read them, but they are insanely, addictively, ridiculously good. But we are here for just one of his awesome books today and that is Heroic. Heroic is absolutely amazing and I can't wait for you all to read it!! I hope you enjoy the Quick Fire!
Hi Phil! Thank you so much for coming today – I’m a huge fan! :)
Hiya, thanks for inviting me…
It’s S.E. Hinton’s ‘The Outsiders’ meets the film ‘The Hurt Locker’.
Which of the characters you’ve created is your favourite?
In HEROIC, it’s Wiggy, a fast-talking, chain-smoking wide boy. He was inspired by a very good pal of mine.
Book or film?
Film, though I’ll probably get shot down for saying it. Once a reluctant reader, always a reluctant reader…
Real life worlds or fictional ones?
Real life, definitely. There’s amazing drama in everyday lives…
Can I have both? Or a mixture of? Good writers can do both with ease.
Pen&paper or computer?
Computer, always. Laptop, on the X68 bus.
Your fave book of 2012?
‘The Fault in Our Stars’, predictable I know, sorry!
2013 book you’re most looking forward to?
I think I’ve already read it, ‘Every Day’ by David Levithan. It’s an absolute corker.
Favourite all-time book?
Depends what day of the week you ask me…today it’s probably ‘Skellig’, tomorrow ‘The Book Thief’, the next day…I’m sure you get the drift.
Thank you so much again, Phil!
Pleasure, hope you enjoy HEROIC…
