About ten years ago, I was in the process of looking for a publisher and was showing my work to various editors and art directors. One editor spotted an owl I’d drawn and suggested that I write a story about an owl, easier said than done, as I couldn’t think what to write. I had wanted to do a book about colour, but as owls only come out at night there was a problem, and there in the problem was my story!
