Author interview with John Connors Hi John, welcome over at The Book Plank and for taking your time to answer these few questions for us BP: First off, could you give us a short introduction as to who John Connor is? What are your hobbies, likes and dislikes? JC: Hey, how are you? I live in Liverpool, UK a stone ’ s throw from Penny Lane! I ’ ve got a full time job and apart from obviously writing I do quite a bit of gardening and I ’ m interested in politics and films. I also review things on my blog thiswayup ( www.thiswayup.blogspot.co.uk ) BP: Elemental is your debut into the fantasy fiction, when and where did you decide that you wanted to become an author? JC: Probably about ten years ago. I ’ d forgotten children ’ s books after I grew up but when the Harry Potter books started to become widely talked about I did an article about them and ended up reading them and then likewise with the Dark Materials books and it reconnected with my childhood somehow.
