Meet the author - Tom Palmer


In March 2021, the author Tom Palmer produced a video for Rood End Primary. The following questions were generated by the pupils themselves:


  • What was the first book/story that you produced? Did it get published?
  • How long did it take you to write your first story? Did you ever feel like giving up?
  • How did you become a writer? When did you realise that this is your career?
  • Why did you become an author?
  • If you were not an author, what job would you have and why?
  • Which authors inspire you?
  • What would you say to a boy/girl who wants to be an author when they grow up?
  • How do you continue to come up with new ideas for stories?
  • Why do you use football/sport as the starting point for many of your books?
  • If you had to go back in time, would you change anything in one particular book?
  • Who is one of your favourite characters in any of the books that you have written?
  • Do you prefer writing children’s books or adults’ books?
  • Favourite genre?
  • Where do you write your books?
  • Out of all your books, do you have a particular favourite?
