In a previous blog post, I talked about how real life events and locations are an inspiration for writers. There was a rather unusual event that happened in the village that I grew up in, that led me to write a scene in Class Heroes #2, What Happened in Witches Wood.
Not literally. But Lolly has arrived in London. At Canary Wharf, to be precise. She's looking for help and she needs to keep a low profile. It's a scene from the beginning of the Class Heroes short story Where's Lolly?
If you have visited this website before, or you know a bit about the Class Heroes books, you’ll know that the series has a number of interactive ‘extras’. I liken them to the bonus material and ‘easter eggs’ you get on DVDs. In particular, there is the 24/7 Interactive News channel – a fictional news station that often appears in the novels.
