Writing Adventure Gamebooks at Ealing Library

Saturday 19 September saw the hordes of Ealing descend on the town's Central Library to hear me talk about writing adventure gamebooks and Stormslayer in particular. The audience were very attentive and asked some insightful questions.

The most popular topic up for discussion was the monsters, the thing which appealed to me about the Fighting Fantasy series when I was young - and still does today!

As well as listening to me talk, those who came on the day designed their own monsters and some even had a go at writing their own Fighting Fantasy adventures. There was even a sneak preview of Night of the Necromancer. And everybody went home with a very special Jonathan Green Author blog pencil!

A big shout goes out to Benjamin and his Dad (one of the original FF fans, like me), Nathan, his brother and his mum (who confessed that she can't wait to read Nathan's copy of Stormslayer after he's finished), as well as Nours, Alex, Kiran and Piero - FF artists in the making.

I would like to thank Linda, Colleen and everyone at Ealing Library for their help in arranging the day, and of course everybody who came as well. It wouldn't have been the same without you!
