Children’s book author Brian Frederick knew he wanted to be a writer at a young age, having won prizes and praise for his early stories.
When he writes, he finds himself entering a bubble and his mind wanders in an imaginary world, providing him with great creativity.
Brian’s stories are inspired by the children and animals that he meets.
He enjoys dusting his stories with a bit of gentle philosophy.
For instance, in his new picture book, Siggy Loves Sausages, Siggy is a magical little dog with the personality of the sweetest, happiest little child.
He goes about the world with enthusiasm and good cheer, and is rewarded for it—with sausages, of course! New Siggy books, such as Siggy Saves Rupert the Robin, and Siggy Saves Christmas are on the way…
Brian thinks a great book is one that is able to share the beauty in the everyday. Being relatable and believable to children is also important, even if it involves fairies and sprites, such as with his additional collection of chapter/middle grade books featuring The Phlower Phaeries.
Brian hopes his stories provide happiness and enjoyment to his young readers.
When he isn’t writing imaginative stories for children—while listening to loud indie rock music on headphones—Brian enjoys following Manchester United and walking with his wife, Harvinder.
They live in a little nature reserve, where their house is always flooded with birdsong and woodland critters run around in the trees.
A perfect haven for storytelling.
Who am I?
I was born in County Down, Northern Ireland, in December, 1969.
I was a 60s child for 26.5 hours. I think that’s important!
I grew up during “the Troubles” and went to a posh school where CS Lewis was once a pupil and Samuel Beckett briefly taught. (Beckett once replied that students there were indeed the “cream of Ulster” being “rich and thick”… I’m not the former, sadly, but you can be judge about the latter.)
How Did I Get Here?
Anyway, I left that place and went to university and got LLB and LLM degrees and a bit of a career as a lawyer which didn’t agree me with me. I didn’t agree with it, either!
I’ve never been terribly good at respecting authority, and I suppose it showed. Some ups, some downs, and…
Eventually I pitched up here, where you see me now. I much prefer writing stories than writing writs, it turns out.
What Do I Care About?
I don’t know if stories for children can change the world, but I hope they can make it a little better – certainly for my readers.
I hope I can bring a little more joy into the world, and a little more truth and kindness.
I do care that these and other important things are often in short supply when they needn’t be. Maybe we can change that together…
