Another great interview with Simon Higgins

Story arcs, staying relevant as a writer in the digital age, repurposing stories, and more: there’s a great new interview with Simon Higgins on the VFXScience site.

Here’s a short extract:

My new novel is Tomodachi: The Forest of the Night. Just published in Australia, with foreign and movie rights still up for grabs (though not for long, I suspect). It’s a fish-out-of-water adventure tale: a shipwrecked youth from a noble English House trying to survive in war-torn feudal Japan…with a little help from his friends. Samurai action, the Japanese spirit world and a murder investigation.

Interview with Simon Higgins on Kids’ Book Review

There’s a great interview with Simon Higgins, author of Tomodachi: The Forest of the Night, at the fabulous Kids’ Book Review site. Simon gets asked ‘Twelve Curly Questions’ and replies with twelve interesting answers!

Here’s a little taster:

Tell us something hardly anyone knows about you. 
The two most unusual jobs I have ever had were: 1. Being a roaring monster in a circus ghost train (had to wear a giant rubber head and hairy suit) and, 2. Being a camel handler, helping children to climb on the camel for rides and leading the animal, for the same circus. Many years later, I rode a camel into the Egyptian desert and my guide was surprised at how familiar I was with ‘camel nature’. So, I say, everything you experience is useful. Even weird stuff!
