Hello everybody! Today I have the honour of participating in the UKMG/UKYA Extravaganza Blog Tour, by interviewing debút author Abi Elphinstone. However instead of a normal interview that has been seen before on this blog, Abi has been kind enough film herself answering the questions I sent to her while she was in Mongolia. I've really enjoyed watching the videos Abi has sent me, and I do hope that you all feel the same! Thank you to Kerry Drewery for allowing me to participate in the UKMG/UKYA Blog Tour- and thank you so much to Abi Elphinstone for coming onto the blog, to do this interview with me! Enjoy! :3

Question: Can you introduce yourself, and the novel that you have written?

Question: What got you into writing and why did you go down the novellist route?

Question: What advice would you give to aspiring authors? 

Question: Can you sum up your novel in three words? 

Question: What do you do in your free time when you're not writing?

Question: If you weren't an author, what would you do and why? 

Question: Finally, what do you do when you're in Writer's Block?

Once again, thank you so, so much to author Abi Elphinstone for being so kind to film herself answeing my questions- and for coming onto the blog!

After being coaxed out of her tree house, she studied English at Bristol University and then worked as a teacher in Africa, Berkshire and London. THE DREAMSNATCHER is her debut novel for 8-12 years and a sequel, THE SHADOW KEEPER, will follow in 2016. When she's not writing about Moll and Gryff, Abi volunteers for Beanstalk, teaches creative writing workshops in schools and travels the world looking for her next story. Her latest adventure involved living with the Kazakh Eagle Hunters in Mongolia…

The Dreamsnatcher is waiting. He has already taken her dreams and now he wants her life. Because Molly is more important than she knows...The Oracle Bones foretold that she and Gryff, a wildcat that has always been by her side, are the only ones who can fight back against the Dreamsnatcher's dark magic. Suddenly everything is at stake, and Moll, together with Alfie, a runaway from the enemy gang, and her friend Sid, are drawn into a world full of secrets, magic and adventure. Perfect for fans of J.K. Rowling, Philip Pullman, Michelle Paver and Eva Ibbotson. A sequel, Soul Splinter, will follow in 2016.
