I just love this little man. His mum sent me the pics of him reading my book. He is Kailash, just 11 years old and my BETA* reader and he is just brilliant. His parents read with him every day, and when he doesn’t understand a word they look it up with him, (rather than just give him the answer), so that he learns new words.
He takes his job very seriously.
Don’t you just love this kid? And do you know what? I get some of my best sub-plots from these special kids.

*(For those unfamiliar with the term, that means he reads my book as it’s being written and passes back his comments on it.)
