Interview with Beth Webb by Merrie, Australia.

Would you tell us a little about yourself?

I was born in 1952 in a nursing home that overlooked Hampton Court Palace gardens. Mum said there was thick snow on the ground and the swans were pacing the lake, pecking at the ice. I grew up in Farnborough in Hampshire, always looking for adventures that weren’t really there.

Helen Harvey Interview


An interview with Beth Webb by Helen Harvey, an A level  student at Cirencester College (now at St John’s College, Oxford).

When and why did you decide to become a writer?

When? I guess I was about three. My first book was just pages of scribble (I hadn’t learned to write yet). I was taking writing seriously by the time I was in my teens, and published my first article in a pop magazine when I was 14. I didn’t think I could ever be a real writer, that was out of ordinary people’s reach.

Fire Dreamer


These are questions I’m often asked about Fire dreamer by teenagers I’ve talked to. I’ve collected them all together into one ‘interview’. If you have more questions, why not contact me – and I’ll get back to you!

This book takes a very different direction from Star Dancer, why did you do it this way?
