You can send me a message by emailing info@andrewbuller.com.

Where do you live?

I live in a small village near Canterbury, in some of the prettiest countryside in Kent. It is very peaceful and I think there are more horses than people in my village. It sometimes gets too quiet so I love to head into Canterbury, my nearest city, which is a great place to spend time.

Why do you like writing children’s stories?

I write for children because I have never grown up and have no intention of ever doing so! I have always had a very active and vivid imagination and I am now able to put this to the best possible use! I have always loved making up characters and imaginary places to live. Now I get to turn these into books and share these ideas with other people – very exciting! I also love the simplicity and innocence of writing for young children as this is very much how I would love the world to be!

Where do you work?

I work most of the time from my gorgeous conservatory in my garden. It is a really light and cheerful place and always makes me feel happy just being there. I also like to work from many other places too, including coffee shops, libraries, cafes and friend’s homes – all I need is my laptop, pen and paper and I’ve arrived! Awesome!

Does anyone help you with your work?

I am so fortunate to have the amazing support of my parents with my work. My Dad, as a former primary teacher of over 30 years experience, has become my editor, as well as the person I bounce my creative ideas off of. My Mum provides another pair of eyes over my work, as well as always keeping us well fed and watered! My uncle, also a former teacher, has become my copy editor and checks to see if there are any mistakes in my books before they are published.

Do you do a lot of planning?

Yes. The Rhymers series has been four years in the planning and refining process. I have had to plan out the whole island where the 26 Rhymer’s characters live, deciding upon how each of them interact and the adventures they will have together.


The Rhymers would love to hear from you
